Join NYC Parks' Arts, Culture & Fun for a watercolor painting workshop in partnership with Seeds of the League. Artist Sonomi Kobayashi will teach you how to draw and paint using nature as your inspiration. Learn about light, color, and design while making art en plein air (outside). All levels from beginners to advanced are welcome.
About the artist: Sonomi is a New York-based artist from Japan who is interested in science, nature, and spirituality. She studied sculpture and printmaking at the Art Students League of New York, receiving her painting certificate and Will Barnet Grant for printmaking. She works out of her Bushwick studio, and exhibits frequently in the United States, Europe, and Japan.
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.
Seeds of the League is the Art Students League's community program.
Please register at firstname.lastname@example.org. The class size is limited to 25 participants and will be on a first-come, first-serve basis on the day of the workshop. Families are welcome.
