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.
