Expressive Arts in the Parks
Join us for a unique and inspiring workshop that combines the beauty of nature with the power of expressive arts. We invite you to experience NYC parks in a whole new way by tapping into your innate creativity and embracing the magic of creative expression. No art experience necessary!
Time & Location

Prospect Park, Brooklyn, NY, USA
About the event
Let's harness the power of nature and creativity to find new perspectives of ourselves and our lives in beautiful Prospect Park!
This workshop will include group and individual work, all in a supportive, kind, welcoming environment. We will begin by grounding ourselves and tuning in to see where we are right now. After some clarifying writing, we will take what has emerged and expand on it through exploration of the natural areas around us. Then we will come back together, share our experience (sharing is always optional and low-pressure) and follow up with more writing and some drawing. Final reflections will take help to bridge the morning's experience with our re-entry to daily lives. Remember, no art skills, confidence, or experience is expected or needed. Come as you are right now - you will be welcomed!
These workshops are designed to stimulate your imagination, expand your self-awareness, and awaken your authentic voice. From mindful reflections to hands-on art-making, each experience is an opportunity to connect with your inner wisdom and discover new possibilities. And of course, have fun!
This workshop is open to individuals 16 and over of all skill levels and backgrounds. No prior art experience is needed or expected—just an open heart, a curious mind, and a willingness to embrace the transformative power of expressive arts. This is a process-based experience, with no critique or judgment of any artistic expression.
There will be some walking and sitting, and participants are encouraged to bring water and if they wish, something to sit on such as a blanket or camping chair. All workshop materials will be provided, however, if you have a journal you wish to use for the writing portion, you are welcome to bring it with you.
Exact meeting location will be shared with registrants prior to the event.
