About The Workshops Program

Workshops range from the playful to the practical and are taught by 826NYC’s cohort of professional Teaching Artists. Workshop payment is on a sliding scale after you sign up your child. Workshops are free for all currently registered After School Tutoring and In Schools students.

Please note: Due to a high interest in this program and our commitment to keeping class sizes small, workshop attendance is determined on a first-come, first-served basis.


Winter & Spring Schedule

Spring 2020 workshops take place at the Brooklyn Superhero Supply Co.
372 5th Avenue, Brooklyn, 11215 | 
11:30 AM – 2:30 PM


Create Your Own Superhero
Feb. 1 • ages 6-11

Superheroes are clearly our thing. What better way to make the world a better place than by learning from them? We’re teaming up with author and comic book enthusiast Randall Lotowycz to talk about what makes superheroes special—and then we’ll create our own heroes! Students will also receive a copy of Superhero Playbook so they can continue writing and learning from their favorite heroes after the workshop.

Spoken Word Poetry
Feb. 15 • ages 12-18

Have something to say about the world around you? Now’s your chance! The Spoken Word Poetry workshop will give young people the tools to reflect on their own experiences and use poetry to express themselves. We’ll look at pop culture, poems, and writing prompts to raise our voices and hold space for one another. We are more alike than different—let your unique voice be heard.

Register Here for a February Workshop!
