so here we go:
I'm at Wagner College in Staten Island, NY, majoring in Arts Administration. One important thing I've learned in high school is that its always a good idea to challenge yourself to exit your comfort zone, that's when you really recognize who you are. And one (of the many!) things I've learned from YCW is looking at all forms of art with a critical, yet open eye/mind. This has certainly helped me out in my artistic excavations in the city!"
The Young Critics Workshop is a 5-month-long critical writing seminar for 11th & 12th graders and college freshmen who are interested in learning about arts criticism and journalism. It's taught by Brendan Kiley, Arts Editor at the Stranger. Applications for this year's workshop are due October 15th. Download more info here. Download the application here.
