SATURDAY: Sketch the Ukrainian Museum


The finest collection Ukrainian Art outside of Kiev

Over the years we’ve sketched at the Ukrainian Museum twice, but that was before their troubles.  Back then I couldn’t describe their flag or even properly say the name of their largest city.  So much has happened since then.  I'm sure many of us have strong feelings about this country and its people.

The Ukrainian National Women's League of America  built this museum, the largest museum of its kind outside of Ukraine, dedicated to the enjoyment, understanding, and preservation of the artistic and cultural heritage of Ukraine.

The museum is also located in a particularly sketchable area of NYC, with lots to draw and see in the streets.  Although it's still early April the weather may be suitable for outdoor sketching.


What  We’ll be sketching at The Ukrainian Museum

When:  The Ukrainian Museum opens at 11:30, on Saturday, April 8, 2023

Where:  222 East Sixth Street (between 2nd & 3rd Avenues - see map below)

How:  Subway options:

  • #6 (Lexington Ave. line) to Astor Place (8th St./4th Ave.)
  • N,R to 8th St./Broadway
  • F to 2nd Ave./Houston S

How Much:

Admission to galleries:

  • $8.00 adults and 
  • $6.00 seniors students (with valid ID)
  • Children under 12 – free

Lunch:  No lunch.  We’re starting much later than usual, come well fed, bring your own or rely on the street to provide.  We will not be stopping for a dedicated lunch.

Show and Tell:   3:00 PM - We’ll confirm this on Saturday but the likely spot is the Cooper Triangle Park a block west of the museum.  In the map below the letter “r” in the word “Public Theater”  touches the park.


-    Bring a stool if you have one.  It gives you more options

-    The museum asks visitors to check their backpacks, so you’ll need to carry your art supplies.
