After School Classes for Ages 5 to 15

After school 5 to 12

Extend learning beyond the classroom during the school year with CMA’s after school art classes. Through a weekly, immersive arts class, children develop a portfolio of work over the course of a semester that explores a range of materials and art-making techniques. Our Teaching Artists help your child refine their art techniques, develop their own artistic voice, and build their critical thinking skills. CMA’s After School program is both a fun and educational way to unwind after the school day.

Spring Semester Dates: January 23 – May 18, 2017

Classes run Mondays, Tuesdays & Wednesdays from 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM, with a late pickup option at 6:00 PM. Drop Off for all after school classes occurs between 3:30 and 4:00 PM with supervised play until class begins at 4:00 PM.

Late Pick Up & School Pick Up available, contact Melissa at mrobles@cmany.org for more information.
