SKETCH BUFFALO: See Buffalo's history unfold before you, while learning to sketch live on-site with me. I will share amazing, surprising stories of this Erie Canal city's past, discuss its resurgence, and help you understand basic sketching and watercolor techniques. The experience is customized to you, your group and your interests! Love Art Deco? City Hall it is, with a side jaunt to some lesser-known hot spots for the style. Want to sip a latte while sketching? A cafe inside brick rowhouses on Delaware Avenue will do the trick. Always looking for adventure? Stunning Central Terminal and its crumbling baggage buildings will be our site of choice. Are you a history, preservation or urban planning nerd? We will geek out while drawing. I can't wait to meet you and share a slice of Buffalo, which continues to surprise me after a decade here.
I have been an historian/urban sketcher for ten years in beautiful Buffalo. I was part of "Painting for Preservation", now have founded Buffalo's chapter of Urban Sketchers International. I teach art, have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in studio art, and am a practicing architectural historian. My knowledge of Buffalo's history, and historic preservation (as well as co-founding an arts non-profit which created a huge arts festival inside vacant grain elevators) and my warm demeanor make me the perfect person to take you to lesser-known historic sketch spots for an unforgettable time!
