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 manhattan.acf@parks.nyc.gov. 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.

Please note: This spring, 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.
