This year, artists are leading drawing workshops inside a shipping container at Freshkills Park. Fastnet was purchased by artist James Powers in 2015. Since then, it has been used as a gallery, sauna, and gathering space. At Freshkills Park, Fastnet is fitted with drawing horses for free observational drawing workshops, available for the general public!

These workshops create a visual awareness of the landscape and foster an understanding of the consequences our actions have on the environment through discussion. Join Freshkills Park staff, James, and other teaching artists in this one-of-a-kind drawing lesson. These workshops are free but registration is required.

This project is made possible (in part) by a DCA Art Fund Grant from Staten Island Arts, with public funding from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs; and Con Edison.
