Zoom and Draw the Earth to the Sky: Westbeth and the Far West Village
Date & Time: Friday, August 14, 2020 @ 2 PM
In this delightful, interactive event, artist Nick Golebiewski will explore Westbeth and its Far West Village environs. We’ll start at the Abingdon Square farmer’s market, and sketch everything from flowers on sale at the market to the incredible industrial architecture of Westbeth, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year.
Our guide, Villager Nick Golebiewski, posts one Instagram photo each day – a quick sketch, usually something architectural in his West Village neighborhood. Nick will take us through the sites and their histories, and give sketching tips and tricks for drawing the sites and details. No artistic ability or experience necessary, just pen/pencil and paper, for our virtual lesson. Draw inspiration from the natural and architectural landscape of the area, as well as its rich creative legacy.
