Sketch and Sip Returns

Sketch and Sip

Put pencil to paper and relax with drinks on our elegant Fifth Avenue terrace as Simon Levenson, professional artist and instructor of last year’s popular sold-out series, guides you through the techniques of sketching. Each Tuesday session features a different theme in conjunction with new special exhibitions, such as Hip-Hop Revolution: Photographs by Janette Beckman, Joe Conzo, and Martha Cooper and Folk City: New York and the Folk Music Revival.

The Director

There are many triangles created from this drawing, with the most compelling one found between his gaze, her body and his pad.

The play of organic versus geometric shapes has me somewhat fascinated here. I don’t mean fascinated with my own work, but rather with the subconscious and how it works things out, plays with form, etc…. He and she are the only soft shapes; the rest are hard. His hand and wrist are bone, his head bald and hard. The line of his face and shirt are the soft line we travel down.
