Fine Art Workshops


Kykuit’s stunning gardens provide a rich source of inspiration for fine art workshops led by Rebecca Allan (botanical drawing) and Carol Fabricatore (watercolor painting). Registered students received an invitation to watch an hour-long pre-recorded lesson on creating their own drawing or watercolor painting, along with sample images of the gardens and a supply list. After completing projects in their own time, students shared their work and received feedback from the instructor and classmates during a one-hour live session on Zoom.

These workshops are designed for adult students only.
