This Saturday, the Hans Christian Andersen Storytelling Center is providing a wonderful program for children of all ages, featuring fairy and folk tales from around the world. Urban Sketcher Karen De Mauro is the featured storyteller this Saturday. The event is centered around he Hans Christian Andersen statue "The Ugly Duckling" near 72nd Street & Fifth Avenue in Central Park.
The famous statue is located by the Central Park Model Boat Pond. It’s a wonderful spot, filled with families and friends posing all day long in charming vignettes against beautiful backgrounds including the Fifth Avenue skyline peaking over the trees. Any sketcher would be inspired.
When: This Saturday, September 15th. We’ll meet at 10 AM. The story telling program begins at 11. There are wonderful scenes to sketch - all the time.
Where: To get there enter the park at Fifth Avenue and 76th Street. The pond and the statue are at what would be 74th Street so walk south.
How: Subway - 6 train to 68th Street - Hunter College, or approach from the West side using the B or C train and walk across Central Park. Check to make sure trains are running. Lots of repair work on the weekends.
Lunch: There are loads of vendors - buy food or bring your own. We’ll eat around 12:30 dining together out doors.
Afternoon: 1:30 More sketching in the area including the boat pond.
