Wat je gaat doen

Sketch your way around New York with a local artist.

RATED ONE OF THE BEST REVIEWED EXPERIENCES IN NEW YORK.

THIS IS AN ALL WEATHER EXPERIENCE. INDOOR ROUTES FOR COLD AND RAINY DAYS!

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!

Waar je naartoe gaat

We begin the experience in the magnificent Grand Central Terminal 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. Route varies according the weather & the needs of the group. On wet days we stay in & around Grand Central- also a great cold/rainy day activity!

My experience with Ben was fantastic! He shared secrets of the Grand Central Station and gave me tailored exercises to improve my sketching skills. I would recommend this experience to anyone who’s interested in sketching, drawing and meeting artist folks on the way! Bravo and Merci Ben! Namaste

We loved our time with Ben! Even though we had different levels of skill in our group, Ben made it accessible and fun for everyone. It was engaging, fun and interesting and we all left feeling inspired to keep drawing! Thanks Ben!

Great experience from start to finish, Ben was kind and really good at leading us around the city and making it exciting whether you knew how to draw or not. We had a blast worth every penny

Definitely a must when visiting NYC! As a complete beginner, I was intimidated at first but Ben made me feel so welcome and his process quickly made me feel at ease. A fun way of commemorating the city in a truly unique way as none of will sketch quite like you.

My daughter and I shared a great morning with Ben, rediscovering our artist eyes. Zen Ben was encouraging and thoughtful showing us that drawing is much more than what's on the paper at the end.
