About

In its 30th year of service to the arts community, YoungArts selects the nation’s most promising young artists to participate in workshops with masters of cinematic arts, dance, jazz, music, photography, theater, visual arts and voice.  The HBO Masterclass series captures the moments between these young artists and the masters who mentor them. The curriculum for “Pursuing Your Passion: Lessons from Masterclass,” developed by curriculum writers at Teachers College, Columbia University, grows out of a need for educators across the country to embrace arts education in all academic disciplines.  Through the lens of the Masterclass episodes, classroom teachers can encourage their students to explore their creative potential while they utilize the 21st Century Skills of creativity, collaboration, critical thinking and communication.
