Sunday April 19-Explore Central Park

Richard Alomar, Landscape Architect, Instructor, and Urban Sketcher will lead a sketch walk in coordination with Sketch Out/Loud. This event will take place along the west side of Central Park. Everyone is invited! (Remember to bring your own lunch)


10:00 am-12:00 noon
Working in groups and using creative methods of mapping and sketching, we will start at Merchant’s Gate, travel around the park edge and Broadway to Lincoln Center then find our way to Women’s Gate on 72nd Street and share our findings.From there we will take the M10 Bus to Boy’s Gate on 100th Street.

12:00 pm-3:00pm
We’ll take a short break for lunch (bring your own) around the north pond, then we’ll ramble through the Rambles incorporating techniques in serial sketching, story boarding and annotative sketching. We’ll finish at Fredrick Douglass Circle with a review of the day’s work

The American Society of Landscape Architects is celebrating World Landscape Architecture Month (WLAM) in April with a series of events that celebrate the places and people that make our profession vital, exciting and significant. As part of that celebration Rutgers University Department of Landscape Architecture, Urban Sketchers, and the NY and NJ Chapters of the ASLA will launch “SKETCH OUT/LOUD” (SKO/L), a social media collaboration that shares on location sketches of landscapes from around the world.

It’s very easy to participate. Add the hashtag #skol2015 to your FB, Twitter or Instagram uploads when you sketch a landscape (photos and videos are also ok). If you want to know more, see the Sketch Out/Loud Flyer, visit the Sketch Out/Loud Blog or send an email to Richard Alomar, ASLA (richard.alomar@rutgers.edu)
