Recommended for ages 8–14

Congrats! It’s your first day on the writing staff for "826: The Sketch Show." Experience firsthand how professional comedy writers pitch an idea and develop a world through heightening and "the game of the scene." Currently showrunning an original series for Adaptive Studios, Julia Prescott is a TV writer who has worked for Nick, Disney, Cartoon Network, Hasbro, VICE, and Dreamworks.

Free collaborative workshops, presented with 826LA, combine writing with creative activities for groups of up to 20 students.

All Hammer public programs are free and made possible by a major gift from an anonymous donor.

Generous support is also provided by Susan Bay Nimoy and Leonard Nimoy, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, an anonymous donor, The Samuel Goldwyn Foundation, and all Hammer members.

The Hammer’s digital presentation of its public programs is made possible by the Billy and Audrey L. Wilder Foundation.

Hammer Kids is made possible through the generosity of the Anthony & Jeanne Pritzker Family Foundation.

Hammer Kids also receives support from friends of the Hammer Museum’s Kids’ Art Museum Project (K.A.M.P.), an annual family fundraiser. Additional funding is provided by The Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert Foundation.
