The Knockstudy program is a collaborative effort between Knocksteady and the Bresee Foundation. The program was launched in the summer of 2010 and has since offered free 6-week classes during the fall, winter, spring and summer. Knockstudy classes are held at the Bresee Youth Community Center in Los Angeles and include: MC/writing, music production, DJing, film, and dance workshops. Knockstudy aims to provide access and instruction to a quality and relevant arts program, and to foster creative growth. The program serves youths ages 12 to 18 and attending junior high or high school.
The Bresee Foundation is a nonprofit community center that is a source of faith, hope and service to low-income youth, adults and families in central Los Angeles. They serve nearly 2,000 individuals annually, primarily at-risk youth from the Mid-Wilshire, Koreatown, Pico Union, and Westlake neighborhoods.
