Sponsored in part by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, and the Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC), the workshop series will culminate with a gallery youth exhibition for kids, parents, and community members to view the masterpieces completed by the youth. Workshops and gallery exhibitions will be held at Lowbrow Artique, a street art gallery and art supply shop located at 143 Central Avenue, Brooklyn.
