ParkARTS watercolor workshops return in June


Published by:

Parks and Recreation

Budding artists ages nine and up are invited to join the Boston Parks and Recreation Department for its popular summer series of ParkARTS Watercolor Painting Workshops during the month of June at five Boston parks. 

The workshops welcome artists of all skill levels to create their own greenspace-inspired masterpieces with instruction and materials provided. ​​Juleen Jones returns as this summer’s featured instructor.  Ms. Jones has a BFA in Fine Art from Montserrat College of Art, as well as a custom painting business called The Artist Touch where she transforms rooms with faux and specialty painting, murals, hand painted furniture, refinishing, and more. The series of free workshops is just one of the many offerings of the annual ParkARTS program sponsored by Holly Bruce. 

All classes are held from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. (noon), weather permitting. Dates and locations for the workshops are as follows:
