Wildlife and nature-inspired art is just a brush stroke away!

Drawing a blank on how to get creative this summer? Etching to learn something new? We’re here to set your mind at easel. Our new Painting Nature series offers nature-inspired painting workshops at the Pier 57 Discovery Tank! The Hudson River has inspired some of the greatest works of art for a reason—let the beautiful Park views ignite your inner artist!

We’ve partnered with local artists at New York Chinese Cultural Center and The Paint Place to demonstrate a variety of art techniques. Whether it’s learning the tradition of Chinese ink brush painting or honing your painting skills on canvas, Painting Nature is a one-stop shop for creative fun! All levels are welcome.
