What you'll do

All art materials are provided; you’ll be invited to my waterfront artist’s studio by the Brooklyn piers in Sunset Park. (Just 4 stops on the Express N Train from Times Square). On arriving, you’ll have your choice of coffee/tea and healthy snacks. We will then have a brief demonstration of painting techniques, such as creating texture and mixing colors, and everyone will be given their own canvas, smock, and painting supplies. Depending on the level of experience of participants, the lesson can be tailored to abstract or representational painting. Together we will make mixed-media paintings that express each of our visions, and everyone can take their painting home in a frame at the end of the experience. The neighborhood is known for having the best tacos in Brooklyn, and the painting lesson will conclude with a feast from Tacos el Bronco (vegetarian options available).

James

I’m an artist based in NYC. I create paintings in my studio full-time and show my work in local and international galleries. I went to art school in NYC (Cooper Union) and after graduating, received a Fulbright Painting Grant to study painting in Rome. I’m inspired by nature, color theory, art history, and the beautiful world and people all around us! Some of my friends started asking for art lessons, and since my studio is quite large, I decided to start holding classes in watercolor, figure drawing, and oil painting. I’m so excited to bring my classes to people from around the world!

Where you'll be

My studio is located right on the waterfront, with views of the Statue of Liberty and the wildlife and boats inhabiting New York Harbor. Adjacent to Bush Terminals Park, where we will visit the picturesque jetty (weather permitting), the setting is a unique window on the history of NYC’s shipping empire, as well as a surprisingly tranlquil sanctuary for egrets, herons, ducks, seabirds, and other wildlife, al
