Budding artists ages 9 and up are invited to join the Boston Parks and Recreation Department for its popular fall series of ParkARTS Watercolor Painting Workshops on Blackstone Square in the South End on Saturday, Sept. 9; the Public Garden in the Back Bay on Saturday, Sept. 23; and Victory Gardens in the Fenway on Sunday, Sept. 24. All classes are held from noon to 2 p.m., weather permitting. 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, who has a BFA in fine art from Montserrat College of Art, as well as a custom-painting business called The Artist Touch that 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 21st annual ParkARTS program sponsored by Holly and David Bruce.
