Sketch Your Way Around New York
Chaque semaine le samedi
This sketching experience approaches sketching as a practice that is available to everyone regardless of talent or training. This is less a class in the technical aspects of drawing and more a practical mediation on the philosophical and experiential significance of sketching as way of seeing the world and New York anew. $30/guest. (Pocket sketchbook, pencil, sharpener included.) Book here: https://www.airbnb.com/experiences/98988 All guest receive their own pocket sketchbook, pencil and sharpener. The experience is a fun and inspiring way to explore aspects of New York that otherwise might go unnoticed. Sketching enables guests to absorb and translate their observations into a personal vision. Sharing that vision with the group is one of the joys of the experience! We meet in the visually stunning Grand Central Terminal for an intro & some warm up sketching exercises. I introduce my own philosophy of drawing, the art of speed sketching, and share a few of my own New York sketchbooks. We sketch our way out on to 42nd St to take in some classic New York street scenes, the beautiful facade of Grand Central & the Art Deco elegance of the Chrysler Building. We sketch our way through Bryant Park, interpreting the Empire State Building, the park chess players & the midtown New Yorkers, or continue into the library to sketch inside the beautiful Salomon Room at the conclusion of the experience. Route varies according to weather.
