Bring Arts for Learning’s Visual & Performing Arts Classes to your Program!
Let us be your arts solution! Arts for Learning (A4L) partners with afterschool and summer camp provider to deliver high-quality, sequential instruction in visual arts, creative writing, dance, music, storytelling and theater. Professional actors, directors, dancers, choreographers, musicians, authors, poets and visual artists help students explore ideas and themes in their art making. From studying their neighborhoods and family histories to tackling tolerance, peer pressure, the environment, STEM, nutrition, and more, A4L’s approach moves beyond traditional arts and crafts, giving children and youth the chance to use their knowledge in the creation of something uniquely their own. A4L’s art classes may culminate in an exhibition and performance and can include a family arts workshop where children and their families may participate in the arts together!
A4L has more than 15 years of experience providing after-school and summer arts classes.
A4L is a successful collaborator on TCT grants and has been a TCT program provider since 2005!
