Afterschool Arts Programming
1st-8th Grades

In Fall of 2021, ABC afterschool program merged with Maud Morgan Arts after school classes. 

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.  What does this mean? That more students will be able to create within our studio walls!
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 (Enrollment is currently full, please add your child to our waitlist)

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, but we recommend a maximum of 2 days/week for Arts Afterschool to avoid too much repetition of activities.

 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.
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.

Starting in 2022 we will introduce our Junior Artist Leadership (JAL) program to our 5-8th grade students. The day students are enrolled in our program they have option of participating in the JAL program. As we hope this facet of our program sets the stage for students to practice self advocation, leadership among peers, creative decision making with their instructors, and encourage confidence in creativity. Expectations and responsibilities will be discussed with students prior to participation. The length of the JAL program coincides with each session (6-7 weeks), students have the option of opting out at any time. At the end of each completed session, we’ll host an awards ceremony celebrating their leadership within their art community.
6-8th Grade | Enrollment Options
Families can enroll for 1-3 days/week and select which days, with a set weekly schedule. The program is run Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays. 6-8th grade enrollment is a school year commitment, however, we recognize that for this age group, there are a variety of afterschool enrichment activities that take place over the course of the year. Therefore, we have broken the school year into three periods, and families will have the opportunity to adjust their schedule at those times without the penalty of losing the June deposit.
