Weekday Sketchers at Chinese Scholars Garden Wednesday
Can you get to China by Ferry?
Yes, you can! Join us on Wednesday and travel to China via the Staten Island Ferry. Well, at least to a garden in Snug Harbor that is as close as you can get to the experience of being in China without actually going there.
Fabricated in Suzhou, China and brought to Staten Island, this oasis is based on Ming Dynasty gardens dating from 1369 - 1644, and features magnificent rocks resembling mountains, Koi ponds, waterfalls, a bamboo forest, a moon gate and eight pavilions. You will leave feeling that more than one trip is needed to capture the beauty and intricacy of this lovely garden.
