The Arts Connection

Observe and participate in our arts-based after school care program! Work with teachers in a variety of arts and STEM options.

Our teachers start at 2:00 p/m/, prepare snack, then board our buses to pick up students at area elementary schools. They return to The Arts Connection, have snack, then break into their classes for the day. Every day of the week has a different kind of class, and students are grouped by grade level. Join students as we prepare for our year-end show and gallery showing! Typical hours are 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday to Friday.

Class options include graphic design, sculpture, painting, science, engineering, cooking, theatre, and more! Field experience participants can either go along with one grade level as they go about their week or stick with a teacher who teaches topics of interest to a variety of grade levels. See what makes our model of after-school care different from typical centres!
