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.

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.

Registration
Please register at shannon.gilstad@parks.nyc.gov. The class size is limited and will be on a first-come, first-serve basis on the day of the workshop.
