Back Sketching - Saturday August 4th
Back from the Porto Urban Sketchers Symposium and excited to get together. The weather report says we should be sketching at an indoor-outdoor location. The forecast is for almost certain rain but I've seen sunny days surprise us. Either way -
I'm thinking big views, ... water, ... interesting architecture, ... an interesting indoors to sketch, ... food nearby for lunch, ... convenient restrooms.
We'll be sketching at the Winter Garden at Brookfield Place, the building complex across the highway from the World Trade Center. If it's raining you can reach the area dry and happy walking through through the gorgeous concourse that brings you from the Fulton Street subway complex,
under the World Trade Center, through the Oculus and brings you riverside at the Winter Garden at Brookfield Place.
We'll meet on the ground floom in the large room by the windows. We'll be meeting at the area between the two escalators that take you to the food court and the bathroom. Bring my cell phone in case you can't find us.
My hope is we'll have brilliant sunshine and will end up outside sketching the North Cove boat marina and the sites of New York harbor. Rain or shine we'll be there sketching starting at 10 AM
WHEN: Starting at 10 AM through 3 PM on Saturday August 4th.
WHERE: At Brookfield Place - 230 Vesey Street. Meet by the huge window facing the river on the ground floor. (see map)
HOW: There are plenty of subway choices. If you want to come by car there are loads of parking lots in the area.
LUNCH: 12:30 - Bring your own or purchase from the many vendors and stores in the complex.
AFTERNOON: 1:30 Back to sketching
SHOW AND TELL: 3 PM Meet by the window where we will share our sketches, tell stories, and probably talk about art supplies.
- Bring a stool - it gives you more options.
