Our free Masterclasses are open to all teenagers and adults.
Our one-hour Masterclasses offer a taste of upcoming courses in a range of literary and artistic disciplines. Led by The Knowledge Project’s dynamic coaches, Masterclasses are open to teenagers and adults.
IN PURSUIT OF KNOWLEDGE AND FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION
The Knowledge Project’s foundational writing, media, and creative arts programs help students deepen their knowledge, express their ideas, communicate and write clearly. Trained in a dynamic “can-do approach,” coaches and mentors lead virtual instruction (during the current pandemic). Social-emotional learning woven into each course incorporates strong values, self-reliance, critical thinking, and leadership skills.
IN THE KNOW
But writing is about discovering that anything is possible, about rediscovering what can beinvented, reinvented and redefined in how we see the world around us. The Know has that spirit in its many programs which pair its mentors, professional writers, with young students in public schools to work on their writing.
-Crystal Skillman, Playwright
I wanted to write and let you know how grateful I am that there is a program such as yours. We have always encouraged our children to use their imaginations and creativity and I think it is wonderful that there are organizations who formally recognize a child’s creative writing ability.
