Sketching in the Galleries
All visitors, including groups of art students, are permitted to sketch in the galleries of The Frick Collection on paper not to exceed 12 x 18 inches and with charcoal or lead pencils only. If individuals need to sharpen their pencils, they must use their own boxes to collect the shavings.
The use of pens, colored pencils, oil paints, easels, or watercolors is not allowed. In addition, individuals who sketch in the galleries may not interfere with the flow of visitors through the galleries and are subject to further direction from The Frick Collection Security staff, as necessary.
Information about periodic sketching and related programs may be found under Studio Programs.
