Weekday Sketchters at the Met's Christmas Tree
There are no end to Christmas Trees in NYC. However only a few stand out as something beyond the ordinary. The tree at the NY Public Library on 42nd Street gives the illusion of coming across a beautiful tree in the forest just after a snowfall with all the birds taking refuge in the branches. And, the tree at the Museum of Natural History is a dedication to origami art with thousands of animals created from squares of paper. But the one that is a testament to the lasting beauty of fine art and craftsmanship is the one at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Set in the grander of the medival rooms stands an enormous tree with carved angles in its branches and the entire town of Bethlehem beneath it. Join us as we try to capture the whole tree, or just an angel, the nativity or perhaps the blacksmith working in his shop.
