ARTS AFTER-SCHOOL

What are YAA Arts After-School Programs?

One day a week, 4th and 5th grade students enrolled in our FREE arts after-school programs participate in small group workshops in the fields of dance, visual arts, theatre arts, and music on their school campus. 

The final session is a showcase where the students demonstrate all they have learned, whether that is a performance, recital, or art exhibit!

Kassidy, 5th grade

The best part of my program was that I got to do things I thought I wouldn't like. I learned that I can do anything!

Anonymous, 4th grade

I learned that mistakes are a part of life and you can learn from them.

Lily, 5th grade
