SAVE THE DATES - September 17-19, 2022 - NYC Urban Sketchers Retreat to Princeton University


We are going back to school! To sketch, that is! Join us for a pleasurable 3 days as we get together to render our artistic interpretations of the beautiful campus of Princeton University and its surroundings. The Ivy League college architecture is Collegiate Gothic and includes buildings that once served as a hospital and barracks during the American Revolutionary War. So, let history meet art as we enjoy each other's company during this urban sketching getaway.
