​​

A fun kids-only program at Wish- after school art club! We are offering a safe and clean space where students can get away from screens and do some hands-on learning. We are offering TWO sessions for the '21-22 school year based on age, 3rd-5th graders (meeting on Thursdays 3:30-4:3-) and kindergarten-2nd graders (meeting Fridays 3:30-4:30). 


What is art club? Art club is a relaxed, instructor-led kids program that meets after school. We work with fired ceramics and clay, canvas and acrylic paints, and other art mediums. We will work on weekly guided projects, and encourage students to put their own unique spin on each piece. A dedicated instructor will be with our art club students to teach techniques and assist all students. 
 
​How Does It Work?  Sign up is flexible- have your student join in whenever you choose- weekly, monthly, or whenever they have particular interest in a project! Register online to reserve your spot or call the studio. Walk-ins can be accommodated as long as there is space, but we cannot guarantee availability.


How Much does it Cost? To join our guided project, it is $25 per week. See below for our schedule of guided projects. 


Benefits Art club is a drop-off program, kids only! Members are allowed to store unfinished projects at Wish and finish them during another session, and have access to other crafts if they finish early. All students will receive individual instruction and attention while they learn about and engage in art. They also get to have social interactions with kids of similar ages and interests!


Our Instructors We have experienced professionals teaching your kids! Laurelyn designs our art club curriculum and instructs many sessions. She graduated from Monmouth University in 2012 with a degree in Education & Music, and has been teaching since then. She has several years experience teaching in public school K-8, and teaching all ages in private instruction. She also currently teaches many local kids right down the road at Clarizio Music Studio. Lisa will be graduating from TCNJ with a degree in Early Education & Developmental Psychology, and is in her final student teaching semester. She has years of experience working with kids at Wish and outside of the studio!
