Weekday Sketchers at the Model Sail Boat Pond on Wednesday
Join us to sketch the Conservatory Waters, better known as the Model Sail Boat Pond in Central Park. Originally created for children by Olmsted and Vaux and modeled after similar boat ponds in Europe, it was later enhanced with statues of Hans Christian Anderson, with the Ugly Duckling, and Alice in Wonderland with her entourage of characters.
There are plenty of benches around the pond but you might want to bring your stool to capture just the right angle. Bring lunch or get a snack at the concession stand. And, bring your imagination to see this lovely area of Central Park as if you were still a child.
Please RSVP directly to Raylie Dunkel at firstname.lastname@example.org. Looking for us? Call/text Raylie at 201-978-6387.
