Grab some crayons and join Friends of the High Line and artist Emily Gibson for a sketching workshop for kids. Best of all the event is free and offers the kids the chance to explore nature from an amazing vantage point.
Emily will be leading this sketching exercise with supplies that are available on a first-come, first serve basis. Kids will learn about the various plants that live on the High Line and use them as a source of creative inspiration and expression to create drawings based on observations on the High Line.
Emily Gibson has taught gallery- and studio-based classes in museums and schools throughout NYC, including the Guggenheim Museum, Studio in a School, and public schools in Harlem and the South Bronx. She earned her BFA from the Maryland Institute, teaching certification through Pratt, and MFA from the Massachusetts College of Art. As a graduate student, she traveled and studied Asian art, spending time in Shanghai, Beijing, and Tokyo.
