Join NYC Parks' Arts, Culture & Fun for an Abstract Nature & Portrait workshop in partnership with Seeds of the League. 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 at the O'Donohue Bandshell. For your comfort, bring a mat, blanket, or folding chair to sit on. Feel free to bring your own pens, pencils, markers, and paper. Some supplies will be provided for those who need supplies.

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.
