After School Art Club

Looking for a small, nurturing and inspiring place for your child to go after school? Art Club is a unique after school program in a beautiful neighborhood studio space for ages 5-11.

  • Your child will participate in a workshop each day to empower greater creativity and self expression. This might include a demonstration of a new tool or technique, an invitation to create with specific materials or a design challenge.

  • Your child’s need for unstructured free time to create, tinker and problem-solve will be satisfied by daily open studio time. Each kiddo has ample time to follow their creative energy to different stations in the studio with access to all the materials and support they could need to bring their ideas to life. Your child will gain confidence as they discover their creative interests and artistic abilities.

  • Each afternoon will also include a group meeting to foster community and share ideas and quiet time for reading, drawing or yoga.

  • Transportation is provided for students at Elk Meadow and Pine Ridge.

What are parents saying about Art Club?

“My son is a kindergartner at Elk Meadow and has struggled with the after school program at the school. He was overwhelmed and felt lost with such a big group of older children. We started attending ARTdog several months ago as an alternative. My son absolutely loves it and has grown so much plus he gets to tap into his creative side! He is much more comfortable and has excelled in the smaller setting. I can’t say enough good things about Sarah and her after school program. Sarah is very gentle and patient with the kiddos, while making it a fun and positive environment.”
