About The Vega Arts Workshop Series

Inspired by the legacy of Arturo Vega, the Vega Arts Workshop Series is an adult art-education program designed to provide free hands-on experiences facilitated by acclaimed artists exhibiting work at Howl! Happening: An Arturo Vega Project. Each workshop involves an original activity related to an aspect of the artist’s practice, designed for participants to complete within the two hours allotted for the workshop. The purpose of the program is to offer high-quality adult art education, introduce students to working artists, share the rich cultural heritage of the East Village and the Lower East Side, expand outreach to the greater Manhattan area and surrounding boroughs, and support individual self-expression through the arts. The Vega Arts Workshop Series takes place year-round and coincides with the exhibition season at Howl. Workshops are free and all materials are provided by Howl so there are no barriers to participation for the public.
