Register for Plein-air Drawing Workshops at Discovery Day
Artist James Powers will bring plein-air landscape drawing workshops to Discovery Day on Sunday June 3. These observational drawing workshops will create a visual awareness of the landscape and foster an understanding of the consequences our actions have on the environment through discussion.
Sign up to reserve a spot!
Powers is the owner of Fastnet, the shipping container that’s being used as a studio and project space for observational drawing workshops at Freshkills Park. These workshops will take place at a covered station on North Mound. The workshops will utilize the panoramic views at the top of the mound instead of using the area where the Fastnet container resides.
These workshops will take place during Discovery Day. This free event is a special opportunity to spend a summer afternoon exploring the future park while the site is closed to the public. Hundreds of acres and miles of trails will be open for tours, bicycling, and activities for all ages.
