Weekday Sketchers at Trinity and St Paul's Cemeteries
For the next few weeks, we will be meeting in lower Manhattan to prepare for our winter "Art Exhibit "Below 14th Street"
Join us this week as we move back in time to Colonial New York. Come and explore the two (of three) ancient cemeteries in lower Manhattan at Trinity and St. Paul's Churches. Sit in these churchyards and try to imagine when there was a rolling landscape of trees and small houses. Try to erase the giant buildings from the landscape and imagine when this was farmland and animals, not cars, trucks, and busses moved up and down the streets. Come find and sketch Alexander Hamilton's grave, look for the oldest gravestone and enjoy sitting under the beautiful trees that grace these graveyards.
