The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts and the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle (LADCC) announce the second edition of the education program designed for students, ages 12-18, interested in journalism and arts criticism. The Wallis Students Arts Reporters program – an initiative of GRoW @ The Wallis, the center’s education department – immerses participating students in performing arts reporting. Students will learn special writing skills through an introductory workshop, led by top arts and culture reporters and critics from the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle. Participants will also have the opportunity to attend and gain real life experience reporting on select performances at The Wallis.
The new session kicked off on Saturday, Sept. 24 and late enrollees are being accepted. The session runs through July 2017.
The program introduces participating students to the fundamentals of performing arts journalism. Students will learn the various types of arts reporting, how to view productions with a critical eye, how to interview artists, and more. The workshop will be led by LADCC Vice President Jonas Schwartz (Theatermania.com) with fellow LADCC members Pauline Adamek (ArtsBeatLA.com, Stage Raw), Katie Buenneke (LA Weekly) and Jenny Lower (Los Angeles magazine, LA Weekly).
A one-time administrative fee of $50 is required, and The Wallis offers financial aid to students in need of assistance.
