Together We Explore, Create and Have Fun

The art lab environment in our classrooms encourages the creative expressions of all children.  Students come directly to us after the traditional school day has ended. They are greeted at the door, provided a healthy snack and given an array of activity options for the day.  Students in our program have access to varied art instruction, homework support, special programs, both structured and free play time and opportunities to engage with friends and our staff.  They are able to choose their own activities and freely move about the indoor and outdoor spaces throughout the afternoon.  Our belief in the importance of play is the base of our joyful framework.

Our before and after school programs are located on the campuses of each school that we serve.  Our after school programs run from the end of the school day until 6pm on all campuses. We cover all scheduled early release days; when students are released from class, they come to us.  Our program calendars are based on the A.U.S.D. and Nea school year calendars.  We do not provide programming on days when classes are not in session.
