Wednesday, October 16th: Mount Sinai Hospital
We’re back for our monthly live drawing show at Mount Sinai Hospital, this time with a Halloween theme. We’ll teach the kids how to draw pumpkins on rickety fences, witches on brooms, black cats creeping, and characters of all kinds from Halloweeny cartoons like Casper, Scooby Doo, and The Nightmare Before Christmas!
Our drawing show is recorded in the Hospital studio and gets beamed into all the hospital rooms at once via closed-circuit TV. The kids draw along with us and call or text in to the show, all from the comfort of their beds!
When: Wednesday, October 16th, 5:30-7PM
Where: Mount Sinai Hospital
