Battery Park Park City Parks Conservancy’s free Drawing In the Park program offers artists of all experience levels the opportunity to create in a beautiful environment, with an instructor on hand to provide guidance and critiques.
Participants are offered the chance to paint in watercolor, or use pastels, chalk, and charcoal. Artists can draw upon the actual landscapes or to draw from their own imagination. The Battery Park City Parks Conservancy provides the art materials and participants provide the energy and their personal vision. BPCPC’s artist/educator will help students get started and offers suggestions throughout the morning. In addition, he provides participants with informative critiques towards the end of every session. Get inspired by beautiful views of the Hudson River and the magical South Cove landscape created by Environmental Artist Mary Miss along with her collaborators Stan Eckstut and Susan Child.
Instructor Larry Dobens earned his MFA from the Yale Graduate School of Art and his BFA from Parsons School of Design. He has a teaching certificate from the Pratt Institute’s Arts Partnership Initiative, and has been teaching and exhibiting his work for over 30 years. His involvement with Battery Parks City Parks Conservancy spans over 20 years; he has led Drawing in the Park as an art specialist since 1992.
This class takes place in South Cove near Battery Place & Second Place.
*Drawing in the Park will not meet on the following holiday weekends: 5/23, 7/4, 9/5, 10/10.
