SUNDAY: Sketching Princeton

August 30, 2015

On Sunday New Jersey Urban Sketchers will be exploring the town of Princeton.  The day will be divided between sketching the University in the morning and in the afternoon we'll be in the streets capturing the atmosphere of one of our state's most beautiful towns.


Morning:   10:00a  Meet at Princeton University main gate in front of historic Nassau Hall (Nassau and Witherspoon Streets.)  Metered parking along city streets or easy access parking garage on Chambers Street about half block north of Nassau Street.

We will focus on the traditional architecture and spaces of the central core of the university but you modernists will also have the opportunity to sketch the more contemporary architecture on the east/southeast side of campus.

Lunch:  12:30p  We'll agree on a shady spot for our Picnic Style lunch. Bring your own or enjoy variety of local and ethnic eateries on Witherspoon Street and Palmer Square (just north of Nassau between Witherspoon and Chambers.)

Afternoon:  1:30-3:30p  Town sketching.  Palmer Square and the public square next to the Princeton Public Library (on Witherspoon) are great places for people watching with interesting buildings to draw.

Show and Tell:  3:30p  We'll go to the Triumph Brewery at 138 Nassau Street to share drawings, good stories and a beer or wine if you're so inclined.


-  Sleeping late?  Come anyway, no one is taking attendance.  We'll be happy you came.

-  You might want to bring a hat and a sketching stool for your personal comfort.
