RECENTLY RATED ONE OF THE BEST REVIEWED EXPERIENCES IN NEW YORK! $30-$40 September Special! BOOK NOW FOR AN EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT! No sketching experience necessary- Beginners, kids & families welcome! We meet in the visually stunning Grand Central Terminal for an intro & some warm up sketching exercises. I introduce my own philosophy of drawing, share a few of my sketchbooks & hand out sketchbooks to the group. We then sketch our way through Grand Central, activating the senses and exploring the dynamism of the main concourse & some hidden architectural surprises. We head outside to 42nd Street to take in some classic NYC street scenes, the facade of Grand Central & the Art Deco elegance of the Chrysler Building. We then sketch our way toward 5th Avenue & Bryant Park, sketching the New York Public Library, the midtown New Yorkers and/or the Empire State Building. One of the amazing things about this experience is that guests come from all around the world to share in the creative process. Whether you are an artist yourself or have not drawn since childhood, this is a great way to see and fully engage with the city, connect with both visitors & New Yorkers, and share your unique vision of NYC! All guests receive their own pocket sketchbook, pencil and sharpener.

I am a New York based artist inspired by the visual energy of Manhattan street life. I have a Masters of Fine Arts in painting and drawing and have been sketching my whole life. I am also a yoga teacher and am interested in sketching as way of exploring body/mind connections. I like to ‘draw’ upon my background in both art and yoga and approach sketching as a daily practice available to anyone regardless of talent or training. I really love hosting experiences with diverse groups of people and sharing in the creative process. This process for me is way of uncovering and understanding relationships between ourselves, each other and the world around us; our sketchbooks become a record of that discovery!
We begin the experience in Grand Central before going outside into one of the most visually stimulating areas of Central Manhattan. We sketch in & around Grand Central, from 42nd Street, past 5th Avenue to the New York Public Library & often finish sketching in the sun at Bryant Park. Route varies according the weather & the needs of the group. On wet days we stay in & around Grand Central- also a great rainy day activity!
8月31日 星期六 14:30到16:30。
All guests receive their own pocket sketchbook to record their unique NYC impressions. Sharing sketches with the group is one of the joys of the experience, which can lead to new insights and friends.
