SATURDAY: The Sandwich Sketch


We’re sandwiched between a rainy day forecast for Saturday, and lots of existing Sunday plans for Father’s Day.

I"m up for sketching!   The Met has an exhibit - The African Origin of Civilization.  Let’s use that exhibit and the many beautiful African objects on display as a springboard for our creativity.  The challenge is to sketch more than what you’re seeing.  Loads of ways to interpret that!


The optimist in me says rain might not happen and we could also have a beautiful day.  If we get a great day, let's be outside.  We'll meet by the statue of the bears (See map below - Enter the park at 79th St. and walk in 200 feet)


What:   Join us sketching at the The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Where:   The Met is at 1000 5th Ave,, between 84th and 80th Streets.  We'll meet in the Africa Room (see map above)

When:  Sketching starts at 10 AM and runs until 3 PM on Saturday, June 17th, 2023.   Sleeping late?  Come anyway.  We’ll be there. 

Lunch:  12 PM Noon.  There is a good cafeteria in the basement.  (see attached map to locate stairs).  We’ll meet all the way in the back on the left side.  Buy their food or bringyourowni.

Afternoon:  1 PM - Back to sketching

Show and Tell:  3 PM  We’ll meet in the back of the basement cafeteria to share our drawings, tell stories and talk about art supplies.


-    Stools are always a plus - they give you more options.

-   The Met enforces sketching rules unevenly.  Pencils are always welcome.

The Statues of the Bears is our outdoor meeting spot -  if we get good weather!
