Freedom of Impression
The Battery Park City Authority is offering two, separate series of free, outdoor art classes every Wednesday: Elements of Nature Drawing will be held in Wagner Park, starting at 11:00 am, and will draw inspiration from the expanses of Hudson River and New York Harbor, as well as the flower-filled and seasonally evolving palette of the park’s verdant gardens.
And at 2:30 pm, the Figure Al Fresco class will stretch the artistic skills of students by sketching live models. Both classes (which are meant for adults) continue each Wednesday through October 30, and each will be led by professional arts educators.
Participation is free of charge (with no advance registration required), and all materials will be provided. For more information, please browse: bpcparks.org.
