Harlem Speakeasy Sketch Salon – The Museum of The City of New York
We had an amazing time hosting a Sketch Salon with The Museum of The City of New York!
On June 15th, 60 sketchers turned out to draw from three live musicians and our fashion model.
Dick Blick sponsored $5 gift cards for the first 20 attendees and Copic Marker sponsored 60 sketchbooks and markers for our guests.
We will be hosting another session in September or October so please watch our calendar.
From the original listing:
Pull back the curtain and travel back in time in this artistic adventure. Draw, sip, and sketch while soaking in the 1920s “speakeasy” style during this one-of-a-kind after-hours event.

Sketch from live models costumed in 1920s era styles
Enjoy live music from the period with a three-piece band
Drink and draw as an MC guides you through the evening
