SUNDAY: Art Supplies and Sketchable Gardens

Sunday June 4, 2017

Many thanks to NYC USk Sketcher - 
Dan Jay for help researching this event.

The willow treehouse at El Jardin del Paraiso

Jerry’s Palette Shop at 111 4th Ave, is hosting a special bagel party for NYC Urban Sketchers from 10 AM to 11.  Any purchases made during that time will enjoy a 25% discount.  This is a great opportunity to explore one of NYC’s premier art supply stores.

Then at 11 AM we’ll be walking to the gardens located at East 4th Street between Ave. C and D.

No spot in NYC has more community based gardens than the East Village.  Originally the site of derelict buildings, the original visionaries cleared the debris of burned or collapsed buildings to create their urban slice of paradise.  Each garden is unique and maintained by passionate neighborhood residents.

What an amazing oasis…. 
Thank you all earth people (community gardeners) 
for keeping this patch of earth wild.
