​SATURDAY: Sketch the Conservatory Gardens


​SATURDAY:  Sketch the Conservatory Gardens

The Conservatory Garden in Central Park has shaded alleys, beautiful flowers, water features and statuary...  a perfect sketch site.  Join us Saturday for a day of sketching in the only formal gardens in Central Park.  

Enter between 104th and 105th Street through the beautiful gates and you will find three different gardens, an English garden, a French garden and an Italian garden, each with its own special features and beauty.


What  We’ll be sketching the Conservatory Garden​s​ in Central Park, which are located off Fifth Avenue between 103rd and 106th Streets

When:  SATURDAY, May 13, 2023 starting at 10 AM

Where:  Meet at the center garden​s​ located off Fifth Avenue between 103rd and 106th Streets​

How:  Subway:

Take the #6 train to the 103rd Street stop. It’s about a two and half block walk to the park

Lunch:  12:00 Noon - We'll eat in the garden or nearby if picnicking isn't permitted in the Garden.  Bring your own or chance buying from vendors in the park.

Afternoon:   1:00 back to sketching

-    Bring a stool if you have one.  Although the park has benches they often are not located with the perfect view.

-    The current weather forecast for Saturday is “iffy”  with a 50% chance of rain.  Since Sunday is Mother’s Day,  let’s hope for a good sketching day for Saturday.  If the forecast gets worse we’ll cancel, but so far - all systems are “Go”!
