The Studio Museum in Harlem is thrilled to participate in Summer Streets 2022! We invite the New York City community to join us at the Uptown Rest Stop. In addition to offeringStudio and Harlem Postcards, Studio Museum artist educator Blake Paskal will facilitate a drop-in art workshop, Mapping Our Emotions, for adults and children. This activity invites participants to take part in a collaborative, abstract drawing exercise. Through intuitive and expressive techniques, participants will translate their emotions onto paper, which they will then trade with another participant for their creative response.
This event is free to attend. For more information, visit DOT Summer Streets.
Blake Paskal (he/they) is an artist and educator based in Brooklyn. He is interested in how our bodies hold memory and how trauma and joy become physicalized in the body. The collaborative art making workshops that he leads seek to encourage the strengthening of somatic intelligence in himself and others.
