with Street Lab

Wednesdays from 12-3pm in July
Broadway Plaza between 43rd and 44th Streets 

Times Square hosted Street Lab’s DRAW NYC — an open-air art studio that offers New Yorkers access to fine art materials and encourages them to gather together to draw and create in public. Participants were able to use artist prompts and take part in activities, or draw from their own inspiration. DRAW NYC travels across New York City and is designed for all ages and abilities.
