Transit After Hours - Drawn On The Way

Thursday, January 13, 2022

6:00 - 6:45 pm

Free Online Program

Join the New York Transit Museum for an online program with Sarah Nisbett, author of Drawn on the Way, to learn more about how picking up a simple office pen and sketching fellow passengers on her daily subway commute changed the course of her life. 

We spend so much of our lives “on the way,” rushing, commuting, running from task to task and place to place. Drawn On The Way is a collection of sketches — drawn live, in the moment — that celebrates the people, moments and objects often overlooked in the rush of our day-to-day lives. 

Nisbett will share her work and how she taught herself to quickly sketch fleeting moments, as well as what she learned about connecting with others while riding public transit. If you’re looking for more opportunities for creativity and connection in your every day, Sarah will lead a drawing exercise with tips for getting started, looking closely, and being inspired by what is all around us.
