Join NYC Parks' Arts, Culture & Fun for a nature painting workshop in partnership with Seeds of the League. Artist Jessica Angamarca will lead the workshop where you will learn techniques for drawing and painting in nature. All levels from beginner to advanced are welcome.   

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

About Jessica Angamarca: Jessica Angamarca attended the High School of Art and Design and is a Scholastic Art & Writing Award gold, silver, and honorable mention winner. In this workshop, she will share her love of nature. “Where others might find landscapes boring, I see atmosphere, spirit, and nature as a challenge to capture.” 

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

Registration
Please RSVP to Lucy.aponte@parks.nyc.gov to register, and note that the class size is limited to 15 participants and will be on a first-come-first-serve basis on the day of the workshop. Families are welcome. 

Please note: This summer, 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.

Note: Some programs may be modified, rescheduled, or cancelled due to weather, health, or safety concerns.
