Endless Wonders Under the Sea!

“The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.”

-Jacques Cousteau

Join  NYC Urban Sketchers for a morning of marine discovery: 

The ocean is literally a sea of endless wonders. With waters covering over three-fourths of our planet. The horizon reveals waters that never end. The most intriguing is what’s underneath. We have never come close to exploring even a fraction of its deep waters. In fact, we have rarely seen the ocean’s floor beds, but when we have, it has revealed some of the most incredible discoveries one can imagine.

With humans always looking to find and explore every inch of our planet, we have voyaged countless miles of oceanic waters and in the process have left behind a great deal of our past. Some of these artifacts date back a century ago and others go back thousands of years, revealing the incredible past of our existence. In the last century, our ability to explore has improved tenfold with so many recent discoveries, both human and not human, including some of the most baffling maritime wildlife.
