Join NYC Parks' Arts, Culture & Fun for a Portrait of Self/Friend as a Comic Character workshop in partnership with Seeds of the League. Andrew Clayton will lead the class in watercolor and pen and ink portraits.

Andrew Clayton, a native New Yorker, studied draftsmanship at the Art Students League of New York and aspires to a career in illustration and cartooning. 

Seeds of the League is the Art Students League's community program. 

The workshop will take place outdoors. For your comfort, bring a mat, blanket, or folding chair to sit on. Feel free to bring your own paper, pens, pencils, and markers. Some supplies will be provided for those who need supplies. 

Registration
Please email Stephanie.Joseph@parks.nyc.gov to register, and note that the class size is limited to 15 participants and will be on a first-come-first-serve basis on the day of the workshop. This workshop will be cancelled in case of rain. 

Please note: This summer, due to the coronavirus pandemic, we're offering outdoor programs with limited attendance so that you can have a safe and enjoyable time in parks. Based on New York State guidance for sports and recreation during COVID-19, we’ve put protocols into place to keep our participants and staff safe and healthy. We're asking everyone to help us stay safe:

  • Stay home if you're sick
  • Maintain six feet of physical distance between households
  • Wear a face covering
  • Wash your hands

Additionally, we encourage participants to bring their own hand sanitizer to our programming.

Note: Some programs may be modified, rescheduled, or cancelled due to weather, health, or safety concerns.
