NYC Urban Sketching Announcements

There are a number of announcements:

1.  No Sketching Labor Day Weekend:
2.  Next weekend Sept 13th
3.  Special Event at the Transit Museum
4. Workshop Announcement - at the Botanic Gardens
5.  Invitation to submit your Coney Island sketches

Labor Day Weekend - 
I managed to injure my knee. The doctor's recommendation is to go light on it.  Given that and the fact that it's a holiday weekend and many people are out of town, there will be no USk Event for Memorial Day Weekend.

Sketching SUNDAY Sept 13.  
We have an interesting day planned. We'll be going to a location that I can almost guarantee that you've never visited that will have a knock-out sketching view.  Late afternoon that same day is another Dr. Sketchy event (not really Urban Sketching, but a lot of fun if you've never check it out)  Details to follow.​  Hold onto that Sunday for us!

Special Sketch Event WEDNESDAY Night September 16.  
We've been invited as the Featured Artists at an event at the NYC Transit Museum.  There will be music, dancing and a lot of other things going on.  Our job will be to record the event.  You and a guest (if you like) will have free admission. You will need to sign up in advance for this one    Details to follow.  This could be very interesting.
