Someone please remind us, in the full heat of summer, how desperately we wanted to be sketching outdoors at the beginning of Spring. Apologies for the late notice, I was hoping for a shift in the weather. Anyway we have a great indoor plan that should fun.
Imagine being given the run of an incredible New York home, complete with elegant furniture and world-class artwork. The Fricks have invited us to sketch at their place on Fifth Avenue. Imagine a living room with a pair of Holbein's on either side of the fireplace.
Currently there is a wonderful Turner exhibit and a show about porcelain although I’m always drawn to sketching the furniture and the rooms themselves.
The Basics: Meet at the The Frick Collection, at 1 East 70th Street, at 11 AM on Saturday, April 1st (Happy April Fool’s Day).
Lunch: 12:30 - Catch as catch can. There is no cafeteria at the Frick and it’s a long walk to a limited number of places. Best bet might be to eat a hearty breakfast or buy a quick bite from food vendors around Central Park
Afternoon: Back to sketching.
Show and Tell: 3:00 - To share drawings, good stories. All potential places to meet are a long walk and/or extremely expensive. We’ll try to find a quiet spot at the Frick to socialize and share the day's sketches.
- Bring a stool if you own one. It makes everything so much easier.
- Admission: Adults $22, Seniors $17, Students $12
