SATURDAY: Sketching the Fountain

Saturday May 7
 Bethesda Fountain

 in the middle of 
Central Park at 72nd Street

Saturday is supposed to be a lovely day, so we will meet in the park to sketch around Bethesda Fountain – "The Fountain," to those in the know..  It's a wonderful place with one of NYC's truly iconic views.

Sketch the fountain, the lake, the steps, the view from the terrace above, the ornate passage under the terrace, or the crowds enjoying the scenery, playing music, or (sometimes) blowing enormous bubbles to the delight of children young and old.

What:  We'll sketch Bethesda Fountain and the surrounding area/

Where:  It's at about 72nd Street half way between Fifth Avenue and Central Park West.

 - By Subway the best bet is the B or C Train to W 72 St,  The 1,2 3 3 train at W 72 St is an extra block further.  On the East side use the Hunter College stop at East 68th St.

When:   We'll meet at 10:00 by the fountain.

Lunch:  12:30 we'll find a convenient spot to enjoy a picnic.  Buy lunch in the park or bring your own.

Afternoon:   1:30 back to sketching.

Show and Tell:  3:30 we'll reconvene by the fountain and find a convenient spot to share work.

The co-hosts for this even are Joan and Joy.  
Mark is unable to join us for this sketch.
