After School Enrichment Classes

Enrichment Offerings

The following are classes offered through our after school enrichment program which serves students in Kindergarten through 5th grade.

 

Art

Critters N Clay 

Enrich your child’s world with a delightful hour integrating science, sculpting and children’s literature!  We will learn interesting facts about a different animal each week, sculpt it out of clay, and wrap things up with a story about the “critter of the week.” Basic sculpting and glazing techniques will be taught to assist in the creation of 3 future family heirlooms. The 3 creatures sculpted by students will be glazed at our final class.  A new group of animals will be studied each session.
