What you'll learn in this drawing class:

Spring is here so we are taking it to the waterfront to capture the glorious panoramic views of our favorite neighborhood DUMBO. Capture the breathtaking vistas of the majestic Brooklyn Bridge or Manhattan Bridge and the iconic waterfront of Manhattan’s financial district, with Lady Liberty waving in the distance! This is a cool class for anyone new to, or visiting New York where you can study famous cityscapes made popular in films and on TV. We will work in Watercolor or acrylic paint in this class and on easels (supplied). Plein Air Painting is the term used to describe the art of painting outdoors, where you learn how to paint quickly to capture the light which changes dramatically with each passing cloud, its also a great course to hone observational skills and/ or if you have already taken a painting class and want to put your skills to the test. This art experience is suitable for total beginners or intermediate students and is ideal for groups of friends, or small groups visiting New York who want to spread out and have a safe socially distanced outdoor art class. Afterwards you can avail of Dumbo’s great shopping, restaurants + cafes!
