Mardi Gras & New Orleans

a convergence of food, dance, music, spirit, and freedom

“Mardi Gras is the love of life. It is the harmonic convergence of our food, our music, our creativity, our eccentricity, our neighborhoods, and our joy of living." -- Chris Rose

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:

Mardi Gras & New Orleans Extension Sketch Project:
Choose of the following prompt to sketch:
  • (a)  French Quarters
  • (b)  New Orleans Bayou
  • (c)  Mardi Gras-Decorated Home
  • (d)  New Orleans Historic Building
*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)
  • Dina Schlesinger

with the assistance of Mark Leibowitz
