SUNDAY: Sketch the Elizabeth Street Garden


Every time I visit the Elizabeth Street Garden I always feel it will probably be the last time.  This choice piece of NYC real estate has been the subject of development plans for years.  And yet, it is still there.  The garden is a sweet urban oasis!  There are always good things to sketch there.


What  We’ll be sketching the Elizabeth Street Garden

Where  Elizabeth Street - between Prince & Spring Streets.

When:  Start time - SUNDAY 10 AM - October 1, 2023.   Running late?  Come anyway - we'll be there.

NOTE: The Garden doesn't open until 11 AM.  I'm going to sketch the neighborhood, the cars and whatever else is there until people start entering the garden.


  By Subway 

4,5, 6 trains to Spring Street

J, Z, trains to Bowery

BDFM trains to Broadway Lafayette

F train to Second Avenue     - (see map below).

​-   By Car:  Parking is limited and difficilt, - but there is no alternate side of the street parking on Sunday 

Lunch:  We'll break at 12:30.  We'll find a spot to sit together.  Bring your own food and drink or rely on vendors and neighborhood stores.

Afternoon:  1:30 PM  Back to sketching.  

Show and Tell:  3:00 PM   We’ll find a spot in the gardens to share stories from the day, show our artwork and talk about the things artists talk about when they’re together.


    Bring a hat.  

-     Bring a stool, it gives you more options.
