RATED ONE OF THE BEST REVIEWED EXPERIENCES IN NEW YORK. RECENTLY FEATURED IN "DOWNTOWN MAGAZINE" & "THE NEW NEW YORKER" FILM SERIES. NO SKETCHING EXPERIENCE NECESSARY. Beginners Kids and families welcome. Sketchbook & supplies included. We meet in the visually stunning Grand Central Terminal for an intro & some warm up sketching exercises. I introduce some philosophy of drawing, share a few of my sketchbooks & hand out sketchbooks to the group. We sketch our way through Grand Central, exploring the main concourse & some hidden architectural surprises. We head outside to 42nd Street to take in some classic NYC street scenes & the Art Deco elegance of the Chrysler Building. We sketch our way toward 5th Avenue & Bryant Park, sketching near the New York Public Library & the Empire State Building. One of the great things about this experience is that people 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 fully engage with the city, connect with visitors & New Yorkers, & share your unique vision of NYC!
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 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 truly love hosting meaningful experiences and sharing in the creative process with people from around the world! To read more about me and my work please visit: www.benponte.com
