Eckford Street Studio: Art After School AT School: PreK - 1st grades

We are so excited to bring the art studio to our youngest after school artists ONSITE in their own school buildings! Art After School AT School features projects based on books and works of art, with plenty of materials and sensory exploration built in.

Young artists collaborate and make their own work, and have "open studio" time to experiment with materials of their choosing. Class fees include all materials and a sketchbook to keep. Teaching artists send out class descriptions before each session, and a recap (with plenty of photos!) after each class. Groups are capped at twelve students, and there is at least one teacher for every six students for lots of one-on-one attention.


Art After School at PS34 takes place Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 2:30-5pm. Reduced tuition is available to all students; additional financial aid available by application.

From complete beginners to advancing tournament players, our goal is that all PS 34 players can experience both the joy and significant social/educational benefits of learning and playing chess.
