THURSDAY February 8, 2024: Westchester Sketchers at The Westchester Mall


The Westchester is the ultimate shopping destination for the Metropolitan New York Region. This high-end shopping mall is a work of art with spectacular glass skylights and marble columns. With total sky lighting above marble and carpeted floors below, commissioned sculptures, and fantastic customer service, all the amenities of Madison and 5th Avenue, are available under one roof.

This week we will practice sketching people - our fellow sketchers, shoppers in the Mall, the Food Court, etc.  If you prefer, you can try your hand at sketching the many statues, mannequins and upscale storefronts or architecture in the Mall.


DATE: THURSDAY, February 8, 2024. 
Start time: 10:00 AM.  Meet at the Savor Food Hall, located on level 4.

LOCATION: The Westchester Mall, 125 Westchester Ave., White Plains, NY 10601.  Phone:  (914) 683-6800.

DIRECTIONS and Parking 
The Westchester is located in White Plains at the corner of Bloomingdale Road and Westchester Avenue, exit 8 or 8W, right off Route 287.

The Parking area for access to the Savor Food Hall at The Westchester is the one on Paulding Street, located on the North side between P.F. Chang's and Nordstrom. This parking garage is located on the right just before the valet parking, as you turn into Paulding Street from Westchester Avenue.

Transportation from NYC: Use the Harlem Line of the Metro-North Railroad to arrive in White Plains.  Please call (800) METRO-INFO or visit https://new.mta.info/schedules for schedule and fare information. Taxicabs are readily available for hire to ride to The Westchester Mall.  

LUNCH: 1:00 PM in the Savor Food Court.  Bring your own or buy from the food vendors.

SHOW and TELL: Following lunch we will share our drawings and tell stories.  This is the social part of our day and is not to be missed.

- Seating areas can be found throughout the Mall, but bringing a stool offers more options.
Leave your coat in the car so you don't have to carry it.
