SATURDAY: Sketch Earth Day at the Queens Botanical Garden

NYC Urban Sketchers Celebrate Earth Day

In celebration of Earth Day, the NYC Urban Sketchers will sketch the Climate Arts Festival at the Queens Botanical Garden on April 22, 2023.   There will be loads to see and do.  This event is targeted to attract families. There will be lots of booths and exhibits.  Having us sketching the event will add to the charm.

Learn how to take care of nature, not just for Earth Month, but every day of the year.  After all, it is an Earth Day celebration. There will be many knowledgeable environmental experts sharing their passion.

In addition, we will be represented in the vendor alley where we will have a table promoting our group. We will also be selling our artwork, or our art prints.  We are splitting  the proceeds with the garden. If you have artwork you’d like to offer for sale, bring it.  Landscapes, garden scenes and outdoor settings would be particularly relevant.
