After School Art Camp
Our After School Art Program offers unique perspectives from professional artists with hands-on work in mediums not commonly offered in schools.
The program serves children ages 6-12. Monday through Friday we have a weekly rotating visual arts programming.
Art Box Courses
Our Art Box courses support local Artists and give community members high-quality art materials and a lesson plan to develop your techniques and art knowledge. Each box is complete with a lesson plan and all materials needed to complete a fun art project. Each box will be unique, exploring a different art medium and tapping into a different part of the creative mind.
