After School Studio (Grades 3-5)

After School Studio (Grades 3-5)
In our small classes, teaching artists engage students in skill-based instruction and hands-on project activities where they learn, share, and celebrate their work. Our instructors are practicing artists, and child whisperers who create fun, responsive and supportive home studio environments for all young artists. Class activities include storytelling, studio time, games, movement, and ongoing self-reflection to build trust and understanding.
