Vega Arts Workshop Series: Collage Portraits with Antony Zito
December 11, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Dynamic painter, sculptor, and collagist Antony Zito leads the final installment of the Vega Arts Workshop Series for 2019. A brilliant mentor, Zito brings his tour-de-force skills—combining painting, collage, and found objects—and invites participants to use a favorite image of themselves, family members, or pets as inspiration for an evening of collage-portrait making. Magazines will be the primary source material for the collages. All materials are provided. No previous experience in collage or painting is necessary for this workshop. Seating is limited, so register early to reserve your spot by completing the form below. Workshop confirmations will be sent via email by the Education Director. Due to limits of space and resources, walk-ups or unconfirmed participants cannot be accommodated the day of the workshop.

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.
