#TheDorillWay is our instructional vision for our young Citizen Artists as they become team builders + collaborators, creators, problem-seekers and project managers who seek opportunities to have a positive impact on their communities. Young Citizen Artists will interact and engage in Creative Maker Spaces – learner-driven, culturally responsive-sustaining spaces with multidisciplinary experiences that promote artistic and creative expression, academic enrichment, and community engagement.

SATURDAY ARTS DORILL is a FREE exploratory multidisciplinary arts education program focused on teaching composition as a bridge between art and community. Program is held in-person at The Lower Eastside Girls Club centering on developing our young citizen artists who are often underestimated and overlooked as they become team builders + collaborators, creators, problem-seekers, and project managers. Participants are provided the opportunity to use the arts as a catalyst to tell their stories, empowering them to transform the issues that are relevant to their lives and the larger communities.
Summer Arts Dorill is a FREE four-week intense multidisciplinary arts program held both in-person and virtually from July 5th – July 30th which fosters engagement and exposure to the arts for youth between the ages of 10 and 18 years old. Our aim is to expand upon young people’s artistic capabilities + creativity, broaden their awareness of the arts, and encourage them to recognize high school/college prep and professional opportunities in arts-related fields.
CLASSES ALSO INCLUDE
IN-SCHOOL ARTS DORILL is a growing program, curated to respond to the removal of arts education from our NYC public schools by providing an interdisciplinary arts-based curriculum centered on dance, drama, digital media, music and visual arts. Our curriculum is focused on expanding each student’s artistic capabilities, broaden their awareness of the power of arts + community, and ensure they have a platform to tell their story.
The Dorill Initiative believes every young artist and the community they live in deserve to reach their limitless potential – we can not do this important work without your support. There are various ways to support our organization.
