Weekday Sketchers Draw Whimsy 

This week we will explore the whimsical creations of the sculptor Tom Otterness.  His little people and animals populate the subway and other places around the city but the treasure trove of his creations are in Rockefeller Park at the north end of Batter Park City along River Terrace between Chambers and Warren Streets.  

Little people, big feet, strange animals and coins are scattered on the tables, floors and walls are throughout this playground which is laced with water features filled with children.  We can move to Teardrop Park after lunch and drop into the figure drawing session at 2nd Place in the later afternoon. Don't like whimsy?  There are always wonderful river views to add to your sketchbook.
