Draw-mania! SAIL and SKETCH (on an antique Schooner!) Sunday 8/14

Pier 16 at South Street Seaport
New York, NY 10038, New York, NY
Our next SKETCH and SAIL is August 14th. ticket are strictly limited so don't wait, 'cause it's gonna be a blast! We've got a specially discounted ticket price ($32 adults/$28 kids and seniors). Please order directly form the Museum's website:

Schooner Pioneer, the 1885 sailing vessel, and Draw-Mania!, the long-running downtown draw-a-thon and variety show, will be offering artists, art students, and all comers, the opportunity to draw and paint during a two-hour Pioneer sail. You’ll have the opportunity to draw three live art models, the harbor, shoreline, other boats, and the Pioneer’s crew as they hoist sail and go about their tasks! You can even help raise the sails if you want to!

Please bring your own art materials, bearing in mind that there will be no space on deck for easels. Pioneer can provide extra water, paper towel, and even a place to keep work till ashore, and once ashore, fixative for those who wish to use it.

The vessel, first launched in 1885, was built as an iron-hulled sloop to carry cargo along the Delaware River and was even featured in an episode of "Boardwalk Empire,” and frequently seen in NYC tourism promotions.

We will depart at 4:00 pm; return at 6:00. Pioneer is docked on the South side of Pier 16, (past the big ship Peking) on the East River. Walk east on Fulton Street and cross South Street to arrive on Pier 16.
You are welcome to bring a picnic lunch, afternoon snack, a bottle of wine or other favorite beverage to enjoy while sketching under sail!
