ParkARTS Watercolor Painting Workshops Return

Budding artists ages nine and up are invited to join the Boston Parks and Recreation Department for its popular summer series of ParkARTS Watercolor Painting Workshops during the month of June at six Boston locations.  The series of free workshops is just one of the many offerings of the annual ParkARTS program sponsored by Holly and David Bruce.

The workshops welcome artists of all skill levels to create their own greenspace-inspired masterpieces with instruction and materials provided.  ​​Juleen Jones returns as this summer’s featured instructor.  Ms. Jones has a BFA in Fine Art from Montserrat College of Art as well as a custom painting business called The Artist Touch, where she transforms rooms with faux and specialty painting, murals, hand-painted furniture, refinishing, and more.
