What you'll do

SUMMER SPECIAL - POCKET SKETCHBOOK INCLUDED!!! An immersive sketching experience for everyone! 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 NYC sketchbooks & hand out sketchbooks to the group. We then sketch our way through Grand Central, exploring the main concourse & some hidden architectural surprises. We head out onto 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, to sketch the New York Public Library, the midtown New Yorkers & 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 the city, connect with both fellow travellers & New Yorkers, & share your unique vision of New York City!

Ben

I am a New York based artist (MFA, BFA) inspired by the visual energy of Manhattan street life. As a teacher and guide I 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 love hosting meaningful experiences with guests from diverse backgrounds and sharing in the creative process. There is nothing more satisfying than seeing eyes opened wide and having my own eyes opened wider in the process!

Where you'll be

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!
