Cherry Blossom Time at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens 04-20-13
We met at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens in time for Cherry Blossom season. In the afternoon we went to the Brooklyn Museum which is next door to see the John Singer Sargent Watercolor exhibit.

Because the Gardens were so crowded, there was a tremendous amount of interaction between the people passing by and the sketchers. Lauren struck up a conversation with one of the kids and was soon swarmed by children. She shared her art supplies with them - new Urban Sketching recruits.
