After School arts is now an official Imagination Foundation Chapter! That means we've been recognized as one of nearly 100 programs across 20 countries fostering creativity and entrepreneurship in children through Creative Play! While much of our program will remain the same, we've modified lessons to promote a new generation of innovators and problem solvers who have the tools they need to build the world they imagine. Students will explore a variety of materials and mediums, participate in global engineering challenges, and share their art and inventions with all of us on their Facebook Page.
Free to Lawrence County Students in grades 3-6.
