The Boston Parks and Recreation Department has announced that its popular summer series of ParkARTS Watercolor Painting Workshops will return during the month of June at five Boston locations.
The series of eight workshops for budding artists ages nine and up is just one of the many offerings of the 18th annual ParkARTS program sponsored by Holly and David Bruce. These hands-on watercolor painting workshops enable participants to create their own greenspace-inspired masterpieces.
Local art instructors welcome artists of all skill levels to join them and capture Boston’s historic parks in bloom. The free workshops include instruction and materials provided. All classes are held from 12 noon to 2 p.m. weather permitting.
