Fee-Based Workshops For NYC Schools:

Thematic Projects: Literacy Through the Arts / Environmental Stewardship
Our Fine Arts workshops are designed to enhance students' literacy by engaging them in artistic projects that develop their language, reading and writing skills. These team-taught workshops introduce students to new concepts, develop academic skills and inspire creative thinking, while learning about our natural environment.

Professional Development
These workshops are open to K-12 schoolteachers from all disciplines. BRAC teaching artists help design curriculum, emphasizing hands-on art projects that teachers can bring to their classrooms. Our instructors are Fine Arts degree-certified and bring to BRAC years of expertise in their fields.

Leadership Development / Promoting Respect for Multicultural Diversity
BRAC's workshops in the Fine Arts enhance youth's educational process through creative expression and improve their motivation about their futures. Our classes create am atmosphere that provides artistic enrichment, strengthens group dynamics, and cultivates understanding of cultural identities and histories.

Workshops can be purchased in a series of 3, 6, 9 or 12 classes that can be spread out over an academic year, or concentrated in a consecutive series. Please call for pricing and further information.
