RECENTLY RATED ONE OF THE BEST REVIEWED EXPERIENCES IN NEW YORK! FALL SPECIAL : Discounted rates for select days in September! 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, exploring 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 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 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 folks from around the world.
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!
