SATURDAY: Sketch the Slope

The Stately Brownstones of Park Slope.

Park Slope has some of the most beautiful brownstones in New York City.  On Saturday we will be sketching curbside.  Bring a chair or stool if you have one.

We’re meeting at a corner of Grand Army Plaza.  Take the 2, 3 or 4 train to Grand Army Plaza.  From the subway you’ll see the Civil War Memorial Arch which is the main entrance to Prospect Park.  Looking through the arch at the park the roadway splits in three directions.

The road to the right leads to Prospect Park West where we’ll meet.  There are benches against the park wall and we’ll meet between Union Street and President Street.  (see map below)

Our day sketching will be spent exploring the area from Carrol Street to Garfield Place, down as far as 7th Avenue up Prospect Park West.  If you don’t know the streets you will be amazed at the tranquility and beauty of the streets and the houses.

We’ll meet at Noon.  Bring food or buy lunch on 7th Avenue or from food trucks at Grand Army Plaza.  Beware, parking in the Slope is nearly impossible

Sketching through to 3:30:
