The Brooklyn Superhero Supply Co. Behind a secret door, after-school tutors volunteer once a week to provide homework help and lead workshops on kid-friendly topics like writing scary stories. Since , Art Start has garnered national recognition and celebrity attention from luminaries such as Russell Simmons and Oprah for its programs, which give homeless youths and at-risk teens opportunities to build confidence through artistic expression. Volunteers work with young kids and teenagers on a variety of projects, including creating life-size self-portraits, writing hip-hop lyrics and recording songs. The six-week course ends with a big show and even a recording session in a pro studio. The kids are alright indeed.
