Enjoy in-person, socially distanced outdoor adult classes with New York City’s #1-rated art studio, The Art Studio NY! With small groups of 8 participants maximum, we will express our inner-artists in spacious, beautiful outdoor locations in Central Park where we will maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from one another.

Feel inspired by our parks, gardens, landscapes, and city architecture as you learn artistic techniques, explore drawing materials, receive expert art instruction based on your needs and interests, and create unique artwork to feel proud of. Come with a friend or make new friends… All are welcome!

Small group art instruction is provided so each participant both stays safe and receives ongoing personalized attention and guidance tailored to your skill level, needs and interests. In our socially distanced outdoor class, adults will:

    • Explore and learn new drawing techniques while tapping into your unique self-expression
    • Enjoy tailor-made, encouraging and non-judgemental one-on-one expert art instruction from our New York City art educators.
    • Learn how to draw “En Plein Air” like the masters Monet and Renoir
    • Tap into your personal, unique artistic style

Outdoor Class Precautions to Stay Safe

We are committed to the safety and health of our students and staff. To ensure a safe learning experience, our outdoor art classes will:

    • Take place during less crowded times and days or spaces in parks
    • To prevent the spread of COVID-19, art supplies will not be shared between students.
    • Students will provide their own picnic blankets for sitting on the grass, benches, or other park surfaces
    • Students are requested to bring sanitizer for frequent hand cleaning
    • The use of face masks and other protective gear is required for staff and highly suggested for students

Health Benefits of Our Outdoor Classes

  • Data has shown outdoor classes to be the safest option for outdoor learning
  • Feel inspired and learn to create en plein aire outdoors, like many famous artists have
