Budding artists ages nine and up are invited to join the Boston Parks and Recreation Department for its popular fall series of ParkARTS Watercolor Painting Workshops during the month of September at six Boston locations.

The series of free workshops is just one of the many offerings of the 22nd annual ParkARTS program sponsored by Holly and David Bruce. 

The workshops welcome artists of all skill levels to create their own greenspace-inspired masterpieces with instruction and materials provided.  This fall’s featured instructor is ​​Juleen Jones.  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.
