Join NYC Parks' Arts, Culture & Fun for an outdoor weekly watercolor landscape workshop series in partnership with Seeds of the League. This month, artist Amy DiGi will teach you how to draw and paint using nature as our inspiration. All levels from beginners to advanced are welcome. Learn about light, color, and design while making art en plein air (outside).

For your comfort, bring a mat, blanket, or folding chair to sit on. Feel free to bring your own watercolors, paper, water, and brushes. Limited supplies will be provided as well. 

About the artist: Amy DiGi is a plein air artist working in both rural and city locations. She is a United States Coast Guard artist and an Arts in Embassy artist. She received her MFA from Lehman College and BFA from Pratt Institute.

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