Conscious, Community, Emerging and Professional Artists
Dorill delivers high-caliber artistic training through our four interdisciplinary arts education programs by teaching our young citizen artists how to devise artistic compositions to reflect their authentic stories and address issues that impact their lives artistically, academically, professionally, and most importantly, personally.


In-School Arts Dorill is a 15-Week public school program designed to cultivate artistic autonomy through an intentional Creative Maker Space. Through partnerships with New York City schools, we reimagine arts education through restorative justice practices by utilizing social change ecosystems to transform school culture. We integrate creative frameworks and thought-provoking dialogue to illuminate the power of self and collaboration. In-School Arts Dorill is provided at a highly subsidized rate to ensure equitable access to all underestimated and overlooked schools throughout NYC. 


After School Arts is a youth development training program developed around cultivating emerging artists who become thought leaders in the global conversation around the intersection of arts, education, healing justice, technology and social change. 


NGK is a mentorship program seeking to reimagine chivalry in the next generation of young men while building character and developing them into socially conscious leaders. We tap into their limitless creative potential through numerous forms of artistic expression and redefine preconceived notions of masculinity. We will aid in their personal and professional growth as multifaceted artists and self-actualized free thinkers. This special project is sponsored by Boys’ Club of New York and The Joyce Theater.
