Sketching With Grandchildren - July 2017

Annabelle is visiting us in NYC for 10 days, and her Manhattan cousin Zachary joins us for some of the adventures. 

Tuesday:  Walking to the Metropolitan Museum of Art with their backpacks containing art supplies.  They loved walking through the Greek and Roman sculpture hall in the Met, on the way to the Egyptian wing to see William the Blue Hippo - mascot of the Met.  They were very interested in the Egyptian Wing and Annabelle wanted to see one sphinx, and actually saw many.   


Sitting facing the Temple of Dendur for a quick sketch.


I sketched with them, and added all of our entrance stickers to the page.


We went up to the Roof Garden to see the current summer art exhibit, and neither of them even realized there was an open roof top exhibit area on the museum.    The City Skyline, looking south to midtown is impressive.  After the Roof Garden we had lunch, went to look at the Fish in the Astor Court, and then ended the day in the Nolen Library so they could explore the children's computer terminals.


Thursday:  Annabelle wanted to paint today before we went to buy new art supplies.


She painted a red fox to take home to her best friend.
