Built in 1765, the Morris-Jumel Mansion is the oldest house in all of Manhattan. It was a base for both sides at different times in the Revolutionary War, and among its guests has hosted John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton and John Quincy Adams. And now you!
The grounds are what initially drew me to this spot to sketch - they are beautiful. But we will also have access to the historic house itself. And it's right next to Sylvan Terrace, a fascinating street. Lots to draw!
Admission is $10, or $8 for seniors and students.
Any problems on the day of the event, I can be reached at[masked].
Looking forward to sketching with you!
IMPORTANT: In case of rain, I will let people know early in the morning if it is canceled, and then reschedule for another day.
What makes our Meetups different from other art groups and classes? There's no instruction, but we like to share our work, and chat and be inspired. Share tips and learn from people in a casual environment where all levels of artists are welcome! Don't be shy to ask anyone anything!
• We sketch for a bit, usually 45 minutes or so, and then get back together and share our drawings, and then sketch again, etc. There's usually time for 3 or 4 sketches.
• Please bring your own supplies - anything you like to work with - pens, pencil, watercolor, pastel, small sketchbook or large paper, iPad, whatever suits you.
• We hand out nametags so everyone can meet one another!
• We take photos to share on the site later. Take a bunch!
• Sorry, but please leave the dogs at home; they tend to step on the artwork. Thanks.
• Everyone at all skill levels is welcome!
