New Jersey Sketchers at the Museum of Early Trades and Crafts....Again!

Museum of Early Trades and Crafts

In January we visited this lovely museum to sketch the heavily decorated interior.  At that time we said...let's come back and sketch the outside of the building as well.  Now it is time to return and make it happen. 

Join us for a day of sketching at the Museum of Early Trades and Crafts. The museum is in the James Library Building. Built in 1899, this is a fine example of Richardsonian Romanesque Revival architecture.

While our objective is to sketch the exterior of this Victorian confection, there is plenty to do on the inside should the weather call for a cooler or drying place.
