So many incredible things to see and draw
Museum of Natural History
I've arranged free admission for the first 25 Urban Sketchers who meet me at opening time. They will also be given a free guest pass to the Butterfly Conservatory - Dense humidity, lush green plants, and tropical butterflies of every color filling the room—who'd guess this is New York City in the middle of winter? (Note: We will probably not be able to sketch in the Butterfly area, but still, won't that be incredible in January?)
When: I'll be there at opening time 10 AM if you're interested in the free admission and tickets to the Butterfly Conservatory. However, life is complicated - come when you can.
Where: The Museum is located at Central Park West & 79th St. Meet me at the North entrace (- the Planeterium entrance) on West 81 Street
Morning: There is so much to see and sketch that it's likely we'll split up into small groups or sketch as individuals. I'm going to looking at the elephants and dioramas, but also groups of people viewing things.
Lunch: 12:00 Noon. Meet at the Cafeteria on the lower level. We'll be sitting all the way in the back. Try to reserve table space if you get there early.
Afternoon: 1 PM Back to sketching
Show and Tell - 3:00 PM The social part of our day. We'll return to the back of the cafeteria where we will share drawings, good stories and maybe get a snack or refreshments - if you're so inclined.
