2018 Seeing it Through

Professional Development Workshop Series

Seeing It Through is a professional development workshop series offering assistance to creative people, organizations, and those seeking cultural grants.


A collaboration with El Museo del Barrio, Hostos Center for the Arts & Culture,

and the Bronx Council on the Arts.

REVIVAL: Contemporary Pattern and Decoration explores a renewed interest in pattern and decoration by contemporary artists in various media that builds upon a movement that developed in the 1970s, when artists began to explore the possibilities of pattern and focused on the repetition of color, line, and shape.


Writers: Be sure not to miss these exciting workshops and public discussions with local writers!


We’ll be hosting a series of free, family-friendly craft workshops at the Huntington Free Library, NYPL, and Owen Dolen Center. We’ll have various artists ranging from photographers to paper sculptors, painters and other visual creatives. These artists will guide attendees through the hands-on process of creating arts, crafts and gifts.
