Weekday Sketcher at Bronx Zoo for the Bug Carousel and
Live Animal Workshop
Continuing our sketching of the carousels of NYC we will be visiting one of the most unusual ones this week: The Bug Carousel at the Bronx Zoo. Dung beetles, praying mantis and caterpillars are just a few of the colorful characters that we will be able to draw and paint.
After the drawing the fantasy animals we will turn our attention to the real ones and participate in a workshop with Muriel Applebaum on how to capture the beauty and animation of the zoo's creatures, followed by our own personal safari of the more than 4,000 animals that roam the 265 acres of the park.
DATE: WEDNESDAY MAY 24, 2017
TIME: 10:30 AM
LOCATION: BRONX ZOO
NOTE: We will meet at the Bug Carousel which is located in "The Plaza". Please check the zoo map for directions. http://bronxzoo.com/map#content
TRANSPORTATION: 2 or 5 train to West Farms Road/East Tremont Ave Station which leaves you off at 178 St and Boston Road. Walk north two blocks to the Asia Gate entrance. Then follow the zoo map to the Plaza. (The directions on the zoo's web site say to use the Pelham Parkway station however using the West Farms Rd station and Asia Gate entrance is a much shorter walk.)
The zoo is free on Wednesday and Muriel Applebaum is volunteering her time and talent for us.
