August 23, 27 | 6pm | In-Person | Pier 16 | $40
In August, the South Street Seaport Museum celebrates several anniversaries of when our historic ships joined the Museum fleet, so we are throwing a party: a painting party. Join us aboard tall ship Wavertree and experience an evening of painting, creativity, and fun as we host the Painting Lounge who will instruct you, your family, and friends on how to create your very own masterpiece depicting Wavertree.
Bring your own snacks along with beer, wine, or non-alcoholic beverages to keep your creative juices flowing. Instructions and all art supplies will be provided. All levels of artistic ability are welcome. Everyone will leave with their very own work of art to celebrate our ships throughout the year.
First time to the Seaport Museum? Come early for a short tour of Wavertree which will begin at 5:30pm before the painting starts.
This event is for all ages. Tickets are $40 per participant, and anyone creating a work of art must purchase a ticket. Click below to make your reservation.
