SATURDAY: Sketch the Frick

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

If you can’t find us
call or text Mark at 973-809-9128

There are no fees.   All drawing skill levels are welcome.
