Wave Hill, the 28-acre public garden and cultural center in the Bronx, offers a bounty of sensory delights for visitors, from breathtaking views of the Hudson River to a range of carefully cultivated botanical displays both indoors and out all year round. On Tuesday, you can explore the grounds in person and then capture them in the form of a painting, as resident artist Carrie Beckmann leads a session of watercolor nature painting. (Children 12 and older are welcome as long as they're accompanied by an adult.) Admission to Wave Hill is free all day, but arrive early to enjoy a stroll through such attractions as the Elliptical Garden and the Wild Garden before the event begins at 1pm. Space is limited; registration is encouraged at wavehill.org.
