"On the Chinese New Year, observers worldwide celebrate by feasting with their families, letting go of grudges and wishing their loved ones happiness, longevity, wealth, and good fortune."  - Beliefnet

All Virtual New York Urban Sketchers events are one session (10 am -12 pm EST) held on Saturdays. For participants wanting to challenge themselves sketching more of a particular locality or theme, you are welcome to do the EXTENSION SKETCH PROJECT below:

Chinese New Year Extension Sketch Project:
Choose of the following prompt to sketch:
  • (a)  Kids in Chinese New Year Regalia
  • (b)  Food served during Chinese New Year
  • (c)  NYC Parade scene
  • (d)  Lion Dance
*Please post your finished sketches to the USk NYC Facebook site. Be sure to add the hash tag #NUS. Please also note that while we are sponsored by USk NYC, our online event is grounded on reference images, which is a very different approach from doing the in-person, on-site urban sketch event promoted by the Urban Sketchers Manifesto.
