1st-5th Arts Afterschool at Maud Morgan Arts
In an effort to make our arts programming more accessible for families who rely on us for childcare, our arts programming revamped the structure of our program.
Each day our instructors meet with groups of 1st-2nd, 3rd-5th, and 5-8th graders. The groups will rotate through different mediums every 6-7 weeks. Currently our medias are ceramic, printmaking, fine art, theatre/dance and mixed media (a little bit of everything)!
Timeline Of our Day
Students start arriving into our art center space at the end of their school day. Kelsey, our Site Director greets students and families during drop off and assist in transitioning into our afternoon of art making. Students have a snack, which flows into recess break (outside if weather permits), until 3:30pm when art classes begin. Students then spend the afternoon making art with their peers, until 5:30 when parent pick up begins.
1st-5th | Enrollment Options
Families can enroll for 1-5 days/week of afterschool, and select days for a set weekly schedule. Enrollment is a school year commitment. Families can also enroll in a mix of regular Afterschool days and Arts Afterschool days.
6th-8th Grade Arts Afterschool at Maud Morgan Arts
Youth will rotate through mediums every 6-7 weeks. For example, a student enrolled in a day of Arts Afterschool would get a mix of ceramics, printmaking, drawing, painting, and mixed media, over the course of the year.
The program will take place in the studios at Maud Morgan, and the group will have a maximum of 10 students/day. Arts instruction will take place from 3:30-5:30 pm, but students may arrive anytime after 2pm to participate in snack and recess (transition times are alongside our 1st-5th graders).
Our 6-8th grade students can walk to the program, take a bus to the Baldwin School and walk themselves to the art center, or get dropped off. We will take attendance as youth arrive, and call families if we are expecting a student and they don’t arrive, but we do not meet buses and supervise the walk down to the art center for this age group.
