After School Program for creative learners
In-studio after school fun
Our after school art program on the Danforth in Toronto is so much more than art classes, we build a community of creative learners in our neighbourhood art school. We offer after school pick up from local schools (St. Brigid’s Catholic School, Earl Beatty Public School, Gledhill PS and Earl Haig Public School this year), a caring environment with professional teachers, integration of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and a snack to make it easy for you to carry on with your day.
We help children in our after school program build key life skills: problem solving, analysis, public speaking, and how to be a good friend. Most importantly, we help to increase self esteem as they develop their skills and deepen connections to their community.
We are closely following all public health protocols, ensuring distancing and daily health screening.
We’ll still have fun, of course. Making art in the studio and spending time outdoors, exploring local neighbourhoods and parks.

Engaging Art Lessons
Get kids being creative kids again
Our after school art program helps young learners explore their creativity. Each day includes outdoor time, snack time, and a choice of art lessons. Students are welcome to join at any point through the school year, if we have space available. Students develop their art skills, exploring a variety of mediums, and will curate their own work for our art shows!
Our Covid-19 Adaptations
As with most businesses, we have had to make several significant changes to our procedures to try to keep students and staff as safe as possible. Please see our list of changes below. Protocols will be updated as public health advice changes.
- Space. Our studio space is redesigned to accommodate distancing and provide each student with their own table.
- Tools. Each student receives their own set of supplies and a box to keep them safe at the studio.
- Ventilation. We have high grade filters on our mechanical ventilation systems and have windows open throughout the year.
- Cleaning. We clean all high touch surfaces between classes.
- Masking. Students and staff will wear masks indoors at all times. Staff wear masks outdoors.
- Hygiene. Students will wash or sanitize hands before eating and frequently through the day.
