The Art of Growing Up Afterschool Creativity Classes

for children in grades K-5

Our East Village classes are located at the Earth School, at 600 East 6th Street. The classes are open to children ages five to twelve.

Do you love books? Do you love stories? Do you love to use your imagination?  Do you love reading about characters from different times and different places?  Do you love to make things?  Then this class is for you.

Each day, we share a story and then bring the story to life by using all kinds of art materials, from paper and crayons to clay, cardboard, paints, popsicle sticks, and glue. We then share our art with each other and talk about the stories each artwork tells.
