POWRPLNT collaborates with volunteer teaching artists to create interest-driven classes in digital art programs and other topics surrounding art and technology that reflect our mission. We aim to connect artists with future creators and focus on introductory, free and donation based courses for the Brooklyn community.
If you are an artist with a digital or technology-based practice and are passionate about bringing access to quality technology education to all, we encourage you to apply to teach a workshop with POWRPLNT!
