2 ways to play:
Choose by Days of the Week

Are you looking for some additional support from an Afterschool program during the week?


We've got you covered. Choose 5 days/week or just the days you need. Each day your child is with us, they will get homework support, snack, and explore a different art modality with an expert Teaching Artist.

(Bus stop pickup is available from select schools as well.)

Choose by Type of Arts Program

Is your child a lover of all things creative?

We have programs in movement, theatre arts, culinary arts, color and painting, music, puppetry, and more for children ages 4 through 13.

Each of our arts programs is taught by an expert Teaching Artist and runs as a weekly workshop for either 6 or 12 weeks so that your child can dive deep into one modality or try out a whole variety over time.
