Description Grades 10-12. Young Critics is a 10-session program that brings together high school students who share a passion for writing and the arts. Guided by a master teacher, participants meet at BAM to engage in lively workshops that focus on the relationship between performing arts and criticism. Students will also attend Next Wave Festival performances at BAM.
In addition to attending performances and writing workshops, students meet with professional writers and artists. Former guests have included Ben Brantley of The New York Times, Jeremy McCarter of Newsweek, playwright Tony Kushner (Angels in America), and acclaimed stage actor Alvin Epstein (Endgame). An anthology of student reviews is published and distributed at the end of the course.
