Make Something School
Rarely do I wish that I could be a teenager again. Make Something School, however, has provided a reason for me to envy the 13-18 year old crowd. Make Something School, a free youth program, has partnered with Nike, Jordan, and Converse to open a five-week long "pop-up" school house in New York City with a schedule that is absolutely bursting with classes taught by artists, designers, musicians, and more! Classes offered include documentary photo with Ari Marcopoulos, puppet-making with Todd James, costume design with Cassette Playa, a mural workshop with Os Gemeos (!!!!), portrait photography with Todd Selby, poster-making with Andrew Jeffrey Wright of Philadelphia's Space 1026, and, naturally, shoe and garment design classes with Nike/Converse/Jordan designers. Classes are filling up quickly of course, but you can email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot for for your children or—if you're young enough—yourself.
