Winter sketching at the Met

It's cold outside - let's sketch at the Met! We'll meet in the lobby at 11:00 am. (Please try to be on time because if you're late, you might have trouble finding us.)

Here is the itinerary: Looking at an exhibit of French paintings in the Robert Lehman galleries (first floor in the back), then Arms & Armour, and then over to the Temple of Dendur (first floor on the North side). Note that this is always subject to change due to unforeseen whatever. (Unfortunately the Asian Art upstairs is currently closed for renovation.)

Any problems on the day of the event, I can be reached at[masked]-9816.


What makes our Meetups different from other art groups and classes? It's because we like to share our work, and talk and discuss. Share tips and learn from people in a casual environment where all levels of artists are welcome!

  • We sketch a few poses and then share our drawings, and then sketch again, etc.
  • Stick with small media for inside the museum - a small sketchpad and pencil or pen, nothing messy or hard to carry.
  • We hand out nametags so everyone can meet one another!
  • We take photos to share on the site later. Bring your camera!
  • The event will last three hours.
  • Everyone at all skill levels is welcome!

Looking forward to sketching with you!

    I just joined, are only a few people are allowed to your meetings? If yes, how do I get to attend to your next meeting?

    • Jesse R.

      Hi Francia, yes, when we meetup at museums or for indoor sketching, the group size is limited by the space. Once spring hits and we are back outside at the park, there will be no limits. By joining the group, you'll get an email whenever there's a new event scheduled so you can rsvp. Thanks

    I am looking forward to this as I missed the sketchathon due to dental work! Will you notify those of us on the "wait list" to come or not? I like the idea that if we can't make the "main group", the waitlisters could form another group so everyone who wants to can take part.

    I'll be guided by you and group plan, as always. Glad to squeak into this one; TX. Bet if we want Asian we can get Asian. Onward....

    January 16, 2013

  • Susan S.

    ALL the Asian art out of view due to renovation? Including, for instance, Korean pottery?

    January 16, 2013

    • Jesse R.

      Susan - That was what the museum said, yes. I can check it out when we're there. But there are plenty of other galleries to see.

    umm, i'm a total newbie. but could someone please point out where a busy guy (travelling a lot, can't take college courses, and won't be able to attend regular meetings/classes) who has just discovered a boy within himself can learn how to learn beginning stuff to draw by pencil or something? :) thanks !

      Three suggestions: books (http://www.amazon.com...­ etc), youtube videos (there are tons of instructional videos on there), and attending meetups (which is really just a way of making sure you set aside time to practice, and it's better with other people).

    Could we try non-Western art for a change of pace? How about the Asian galleries?

    January 12, 2013

  • Natey F.

    I usually get a wheel chair at the group entrance which is way south of the lobby. Can you give me a hint as to what gallery(s) to meet at?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
