Weekday Urban Sketchers at Palm Court
'Tis the season, and New York does it better than most places. The lights and decorations around the city are magnificent. However, most are outdoors and sketching them would certainly be uncomfortable. However, there is at least one place that has beautiful, unique holiday lights that are indoors: The World Financial Center Palm Court (also known as Brookfield Place).
The Luminaries have been hung again for the holiday season. Beautiful strings of lit boxes that change color as you watch them. (Perfect for watercolor washes!). Not only can you watch them but you can control the changes in color!
DATE: TUESDAY December 19, 2017
LOCATION: PALM COURT
World Financial Center
We will meet under the palm trees
START TIME: 10:30 AM
DIRECTIONS: E train to World Trade Center, A, C to Chambers Street, 2, 3 to Park Place, N, R to Cortland Street, 4, 5 to Fulton Street
Please RSVP directly to Raylie Dunkel at firstname.lastname@example.org. Looking for us? Call Raylie at 201-9789-6387. No need to bring a stool as there are lots of chairs. Bring your lunch or purchase something at Hudson Eats.
NOTE: Of all the challenges of living in NYC, there is one unique to Urban Sketchers: too many things to sketch, especially around the Holidays. So to make sure we get to do as much as possible there will be a small change to the printed schedule.
The January 4th meeting will be held at the Metropolitan Museum so that we can sketch the magnificent Christmas Tree. Therefore there will be an optional afternoon sketching event this week, after we sketch the luminaries, to see and sketch the exhibit at the Fashion Institute of Technology, "Expedition: Fashion from the Extreme, which will be closing on January 6th"
