Guess-A-Sketch drawings are now available for sale!
Purchase a one-of-a-kind architect’s drawing from our signature Pictionary-style competition, which took place virtually this year on April 15. The charcoal-on-paper drawings are original renderings of famous buildings created by this year’s Honoree Sketchers—Frances Halsband, FAIA; Eric Höweler, AIA, LEEP AP; Jerome W. Haferd, Winka Dubbeldam, Assoc. AIA—over the course of the evening.
All original sketches are $60 and available for sale in our online Sketch Shop. By purchasing a sketch, you’ll be supporting the Center for Architecture’s K-12 programs and scholarships. In the summer of 2020 alone, 350 students nurtured their passion for architecture and discovered new ways to put their creativity to the test, including 35 scholarship recipients. With reduced class sizes and customized program kits mailed directly to participants, activities were reconfigured to take advantage of online content and technology. The Drawing Architecture class, where students normally tour NYC sketching buildings, was able to take a world tour using Google Maps to draw and learn about world treasures such as the Great Mosque of Djenne in Mali, the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, and Ad Deir in the ancient city of Petra.
Even with constrained school budgets last year, we served 95 classes from schools throughout the NYC metropolitan area; at least 30 of those classes came from Title I classrooms and under-served communities. None of this would be possible without your support—so buy a sketch and help us sustain our mission!
