The 6th grade boy seeking an after-school art class might find
exactly what he's looking for in the Youth Art Studio program held at
All Soul's Parish, an Episcopal church at the corner of Cedar and
Spruce. The program is relaxed, but structured, the instruction is
good (and they supply snacks!) YAS was designed to fill the hole you
just encountered art instruction and a little bit of somewhere to be
after school. The Church's phone number is in the phone book, and
they can hook you up with YAS.
I am the director of a wonderful after-school arts program
for youth called Youth Arts Studio. I founded the program 4
years ago initially in just visual arts, and now we have
added dance/drama, and beginning in January, we will be
adding choir! I have a teen who loves art, and I found there
was not anything available that truly focused on fine art
(as opposed to crafts). There is such a program now! We have
a Russian teacher who is a professional artist and we teach
painting, drawing, printmaking, and some ceramics. Contact
me at sbcglobal.net for more information.
