Come Draw With Me In Central Park!!

I am conducting a drawing tour this Sunday in Central Park at the Bethesda Fountain, which is located directly in the center of the park. On the tour I will be using a lot of the ideas I teach as an artist's coach and speaker to help the attendees enhance their creativity and deepen their experience of a place. Come join us! There are only 6 spots left! For more info and to register, click here!! A little bit about the Fountain: Bethesda Terrace was constructed in 1859-64. The fountain sculpture was designed by Emma Stebbins in 1868 who was the first woman to receive a public commission for a major work of art in New York City. The bronze, eight-foot statue depicts a female winged angel held up by four four-foot cherubs representing Temperance, Purity, Health, and Peace. The statue is also called the "Angel of the Waters", and celebrated the opening of the Croton Aqueduct in 1842, which provided the city with a dependable water supply for the first time. NYC history is so rich and varied. When I visit a place, I love to take in all the meaning of the things that happened in certain spots. I am looking forward to this drawing adventure and I hope you will join me! Click here to register! Here's to your creativity!
