Spend a morning with artist Julia Eisen-Lester in the gardens using Neo Color Caran D’Ache crayons to create art at 10 AM August 11, 2019.
Eisen-Lester began her journey as an artist at the Art Student’s League in the fall of 1969. This is where she studied the Nicolaides method of drawing with Lester Rondell and anatomy with Robert Beverly Hale. She remained at the League for over four years studying as a full time student. Shortly after she attended the New School, where she took classes in clay sculpture and anthropology.
Throughout her artistic practice she has experimented through a variety of media. Her portfolio includes works rendered in graphite, pastel, gouache, watercolor, oil paint and collage. Her most recent works are in oil, concentrating in urban life.
She has been painting and teaching out of her Yonkers studio for the last 25 years.
