Art After School Art After School

Art After School is a studio class where students get hands-on art making instruction. Students will use various materials such as watercolor, ceramics and mixed media. Classes are offered for elementary students Tuesdays (grades K - 2 ONLY) and Thursdays (grades 3 - 4 ONLY). Monthly tuition is $35 and limited to 20 students per day.

Art classes will begin September 3. Due to fall and spring breaks, two free makeup days will be offered in December and one in May. All materials for the class are provided. Please be aware that some days students will be working with paint, oil pastels, and clay.

Tuition must be paid at time of registration and at the last class of each month for the following month for students to continue classes. Should your student have an unpaid balance, they will not be able to continue classes. If you have questions, please contact Ms. Young at (229) 225-5050 ext. 126 or cyoung@tcjackets.net.

The deadline to register is August 27. Click on link below for more information!
