YoungArts Partners with HBO for Masterclass
Funding for the arts in America may be dismal, but the talent in our high schools isn’t! “MASTERCLASS,” the new HBO series set to premiere Sunday, April 18, presents nine world-class creative artists who are serving as YoungArs Master Teachers, sharing their arts and their life experience with YoungArts students. Each edition of MASTERCLASS highlights the importance of mentorship, allowing emerging young artists to meet and work with legends in the fields where they aspire to become legends themselves.
MASTERCLASS is produced and directed by Karen Goodman and Kirk Simon, an award-winning documentary filmmaking team whose work has garnered four Oscar nominations, many Emmys and the duPont-Columbia Award for Independent Programming.
