We offer affordable classes and workshops in the arts, designed to provide students with real-world application of their skills.
Poetry Teachers NYC (PTNYC) fuses art and business education, employing experienced, professional poets to provide affordable instruction in the arts. At PTNYC we use the term “poet” liberally to apply to many realms of writing and the arts. We take a tailored, student-driven approach to our classes and workshops, allowing attendees to set measurable goals towards their artistry upon enrollment.
The goal of our organization is to provide quality education, which is community driven. We employ locally active artists who open up a network of knowledgeable support to students. Our classes will expose attendees to new methods and contemporary works, while helping them to cultivate their own craft. Our workshops and classes will offer students an opportunity to apply their learned skills by preparing them to actively showcase their work at PTNYC-sponsored events and elsewhere. Not only does PTNYC promote creative consciousness, but we also prepare students for the market-driven aspects of art. Our instructors guide students through various practical processes, which include: writing cover letters, navigating the ins-and-outs of publishing, marketing one’s individual talents, and much more.
Please share our passion for education in the arts with your friends and family.
