WEEKDAY URBAN SKETCHERS AT THE CLOISTERS
The Cloisters is wonderful at any time of year, but especially so during the holiday season with the sumptuous decorations throughout the building and grounds. Much of the iconography of Christmas is based in European art and architecture. A subway ride to the Cloisters is an easy alternative for experiencing the sculpture, tapestries, and buildings that are the basis for the books, greeting cards and religious displays that we prize during this season.
Here is a clip see how they do it!
Join us for an afternoon of sketching the wonderful artifacts and architecture in this serene and beautiful building. (Since there is no food allowed in the building and the cafe is closed for the season, we will start our sketching after lunch. Of course you are welcome to come earlier, go out of the building to eat and return to continue sketching.)
We will meet in the entrance hall by the information booth. You can bring a stool. Remember that only pencil is allowed in the galleries. No wet medium. There is an entrance fee for the museum. A Met Museum membership or City Pass will gain you entrance. The museum's policy is "pay what you want" so if you are not a member any modest amount will be accepted.
