It was so mild on January 11 that all the NYC Urban Sketchers sketched outdoors while everyone’s winter coats hung out happily on the rack indoors. Amazing “spring” day in NYC.

The NYC Urban Sketchers holiday party was held in the Andrew Freedman Home up in the Bronx on Grand Concourse. There were a lot of things going on in the building while we were celebrating. In one room there was a drum circle with dancers and lively music. At this point I couldn’t see the drummers but was happy with what I could see.
