Trains & Railways

"To travel by train is to see nature and human beings, towns and churches, and rivers, in fact, to see life.” -Agatha Christie.

 “Our life is a constant journey, from birth to death. The landscape changes, the people change, our needs change, but the train keeps moving. Life is the train, not the station.”
-Paulo Coelho.

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:

Trains & Railways Extension Sketch Project:
Choose of the following prompt to sketch:
  • (a)  Train car with graffiti
  • (b)  Beautiful Train Station
  • (c)  Antique Steam Train
  • (d) Lavish Train Interior
*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.

  • Theresa Smith
  • Lynda Greeley (Mama Bear)
  • Cecilia Evasco (Maricel)
