After School Programs

Alameda Arts is a child-focused after school and summer camp program.  We offer an engaging and welcoming place for children in grades K-5. Our after-school programs are located on the campus of the school we serve.  Our belief in the importance of play is the base of our joyful framework.


Our art lab environment in the classrooms encourages the creative expressions of the children.  Children come directly to us each day after the traditional school day has ended. They are greeted at the door, provided a healthy snack and are given the options of activities for the day.  They are able to freely move about the indoor and outdoor spaces throughout the afternoon. 


We maintain strong relationships with the staff of the schools to provide a seamless transition for the children from their traditional school day to the after-school program.  


We believe that all children are capable and we nurture their ability to independently choose their activities.  Alameda Arts is a multi-age program. The collaboration of the different age groups encourages the development of Life Skills including Patience, Flexibility, Cooperation, Curiosity, Problem Solving and Friendship.  We ask that everyone Be Kind, Be Safe and Be Responsible.

After School Programs

Alameda Arts offers after-school programs at Maya Lin, Paden, and Otis Schools in Alameda. Students in our program have access to arts instruction, quality supervision, snacks, and unstructured play time for students in the morning and after school dismissal.  Each program takes place on the school campus.
