Join NYC Parks' Arts, Culture & Fun for an Abstract Portraiture workshop in partnership with Seeds of the League. Artist Niko Lowry will lead the workshop where you will learn to relax and learn to express yourself through abstract expressionism.
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 pens, pencils and paper. Some supplies will be provided.
