Powerhouse Arts Community Day

The first Powerhouse Arts Community Day will feature hands-on workshops, demonstrations, screenings, and conversations with PHA Print, Ceramics, and Public Art shops, as well as partner organizations, artists, and educators. Textile Arts Center, Reel Works, Beam Center, Center For Urban Pedagogy, Makeville Studio, UrbanGlass, ESPO’s Art World, The Alpha Workshops, NYC Resistor, Craftspring, Street LabMGC Community Print Studio, and The People’s Creative Institute will all be on site.

Powerhouse Arts (PHA) is a not-for-profit organization committed to creative expression. Our purpose-built facility hosts an extended network of art and fabrication professionals and educators who work together to co-create and share artistic practices vital to the wellbeing of artists and the communities to which they belong. 

This family friendly, all-ages event, taking place across three floors in our purpose-built art-making facility, will also include performances in our beautiful, light-filled Loft and Brooklyn College’s M.F.A. Students Thesis Exhibition in our Lobby. The event runs 1–5pm (doors close at 4:30pm) and is free with RSVP:

Walk away with a screenprint; bring your own shirt for an ESPO original; design a zine; make a button; paint with clay; learn soldering, glassblowing, marbling, community weaving, blockprinting; and much more!
