After School Arts Program 2016 - 2017
The Gallery's new After School Arts program now offers children fun art enrichment activities throughout the year! After School Arts is where children ages 7 to 11 can create masks, explore cartooning, invent assemblage art, dip into paint and so much more. Creativity, exploration time, and instruction combine for great fun in this small group format which also finds time for some creative group games & theater! In addition, occasional guest artists will visit the program to further inspire your creative children. Enrollment is limited to 12 students.
