SATURDAY: Sketch the WHAM-BAM



We've got a great doubleheader this Saturday

Click to Enlarge
First the BAM part:  Dick Blick is opening a new store in Brooklyn near BAM - the Brooklyn Academy of Music.  We're conducting a sketch walk that will start at their new store and will explore the Downtown Brooklyn area.  Blick is publicizing the event so we may have new sketchers going out with us.  The BAM part of the day is free and will include street sketching.

The WHAM part of the day is in the afternoon.  For a number of years NYC USk has been supporting the Draw-A-Thon at the High School of Art and Design.  Some of our fellow sketchers are graduates.  The fundraiser is a great way for the school to raise money while giving us a great way to sharpen our skills.

Poses vary from short sessions of five minutes, twenty minutes and one hour poses. Longer poses of three and six hours are also available. There will be a dedicated room for costume (heroic/cosplay) figure drawing and a separate room for nude/traditional figure drawing. The "WHAM" is for the models dressed as super characters.  You get a discounted admission paying in advance.  (link below)

Weekday Sketchers Capture  Can-Struction at WFC  Wednesday


Every year a few weeks before Thanksgiving there is a Can-Struction display at the World Financial Center.  The companies in the buildings build fantastic sculptures  from cans of cans of food, using the colors and shapes of the cans to bring their creations to life.   The entire event is a fund raiser to feed the homeless.  In two weeks  the statues will be taken down and all the food will be donated to soup kitchen around the city for use in preparing a Thanksgiving meal.

Join us to celebrate this confluence of charity and creativity on Wednesday.  We will meet under the palm trees in the Winter Garden before we capture the scenes in our sketch books.

SATURDAY: Sketch the High Line



The High Line is the number one tourist attraction in NYC, or at least it's the top pick for Urban Sketchers who visit our city.  Given how many architects and landscape architects we have this is no surprise.  The High Line has also played a decisive part of New York reclaiming its waterfront.

A Sketcher's Delight

As usual this is a mid-week, best guess about the weekend weather.  The temperature looks reasonable and the forecast says morning rain.  The forecast will either improve or deteriorate.  Hold Saturday for sketching and we'll confirm, ... or come up with a Plan B on Friday depending on how the weather goes.

Weekday Sketchers at the Battery Wednesday


NOTE: Weather conditions render the trip to the Chinese Scholars Garden unworkable since it is an outdoor venue. We will save the location for the spring 

The battery at the very tip of Manhattan offers us the opportunity to capture the harbor, Governor's Island, boat and ferry traffic, and the Brooklyn and NJ coastlines.  We will meet at the entrance to the Staten Island Ferry where we can get harbor views from inside the building. If the weather is warn enough we can work on the plaza and capture the skyline from the bottom up, Castle Clinton , the Glass Carousel and much, much more. 

Still want a sea cruise?  Jump on the free Staten Island Ferry for a trip across NY Bay.  Say"Hello" to the Statue of Liberty and then sketch the salt water aquirams in the terminal while waiting for the return ferry.

SATURDAY: Sketch the MET



I keep checking the weather forecast.  I'm hoping against hope for one more day of summer.  I'm hoping for perfect day at the end of October that has the warmth and sunshine of August.  Apparently that's not what we're getting on Saturday.  So, with an eye towards the winter months - let's sketch indoors.



The largest art museum in the US is up on Fifth Avenue. It's so large that it makes sense to pick one specific area to focus our energies.  We'll be spending our time in the American Wing, where there is loads to see and draw.



DETAILS:

WHAT:  We'll be sketching in the American Wing at the Met

WHERE: At the Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1000 5th Ave, New York, NY

WHEN:  Starting at opening time - 10 AM.  Sleeping late?  No problem - you'll find us there.

HOW:  Use the side school entrance on 81st Street instead of going up the main stairs. There is a coat check there and you can pay admission there too.  The nearest subway stop is 86th Street at Lexington Ave

Admission:  The museum has a somewhat confusing admission policy.  The current pay-as-you-wish policy will stay in place for all New Yorkers and students from Connecticut and New Jersey, though they'll now need to provide some ID or proof of address before entering the exhibits.  Members are admitted for free and can bring one guest.  Children under the age of 12 will get free admission, and senior citizens from out of state will be charged $17. If you're not a New Yorker, not a member, and not a senior, a child or a student - admission is $25.

LUNCH:  Noon - 12:00 PM.  We'll eat together in the lower level cafeteria - we'll be sitting towards the back.  Bring your own or buy from the museum.

AFTERNOON:  1:15 PM  Back to sketching in the American Wing

SHOW and TELL:   3 PM - We'll meet again towards the back of the cafeteria, where we will share drawings, good stories a snack or drink if you're so inclined.


NOTE:
-     Bring a stool if you have one, it gives you more options.  Tripods are not permitted but stools are. 
-     Backpacks are not permitted although you can carry a day- bag
-     The rules about drawing in the museum are unevenly enforced.  Some guards may insist you can only use pencil other guards seem delighted to see us sketching.  Smile - and don't argue

SATURDAY: Sketch Weeksville



Weeksville Heritage Center, Brooklyn’s largest African-American cultural institution, is dedicated to preserving the history of the 19th century African American community of Weeksville, Brooklyn - one of America’s first free black communities.  



Weeksville, part of the present-day neighborhoods of Crown Heights and Bedford-Stuyvesant, was an independent free black community, named for James Weeks. Weeks purchased property in 1838, along with other African American investors, in order to create an intentional landowning community.  Continuing the legacy of self-determination, Weeksville's history was rediscovered in 1968 when urbanization threatened to erase the physical memory by destroying the few remaining historic homes. Instead, a grassroots preservation effort started to preserve the Hunterfly Road Houses and the memory of historic Weeksville.



There is no place like this in NYC.  It captures a fleeting piece of NYC's past.

Weekday Sketchers in Fort Greene Park, Brooklyn



George Washington, Walt Whitman, Calvert Vaux. Fredrick Law Ulmstead. McKim, Mead and White are but a few of the notables associated with Fort Greene Park. In addition to the usual park facilities, this  30 acre park also houses a monument to the more than 12,000 people who died on prison ships in nearby Wallabout Bay (now Brooklyn Navy Yard) while being held prisoners by the British during the Revolution War's  Battle of Brooklyn.

Work on a view of the monument that now honors their memory. Or capture the Greek temple-like building that houses a museum of the history of the park. Or render the beautiful row houses that surround the park. No matter your choice it will be a good day's work.
