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 professional 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.
