The Press Corps offers several styles of workshop to teach teens arts criticism and arts journalism.

See here for more information on Press Corps Pop-Up Workshops and Press Corps Intensives.

Press Corps Pop-Up Workshops


Press Corps Pop-Up workshops cover the basics of arts criticism and offer teens a chance to try their hand at arts writing. These short workshops include seeing an art event and having a lesson with a professional critic on how to approach looking at art with a critical lens. In these workshops, teens will try several different writing prompts to practice articulating their unique perspective on art. We work with our Arts and Community Partners to host these workshops at a variety of locations.

Press Corps Intensives


Press Corps Intensives are deep-dive workshops into arts writing and arts criticism. In each course, teens work with professional critics and arts journalists to receive mentorship on their writing. Some Press Corps Intensives are multi-week workshops where teens attend a different art event each week and practice writing reviews of each event. Others are week-long immersions into arts journalism, where teens learn how to interview artists and write features and previews of arts events. In each Intensive, teaching artists provide individual editing feedback and mentorship so participants can hone and strengthen their writing skills and build their confidence and individual voice.

Press Corps Intensive participants all publish at least one piece of writing on the TeenTix blog from their work in the Intensive.
