CRCS Afterschool Program: Art and Craft for Life

CRCS Afterschool Program: Art and Craft for Life

The focus of the program activities is to introduce children to a wide range of media so they can explore their own creativity and discover their own passions. The projects are designed to be flexible enough to work well for ages 5-13 and are suitable for children of varying abilities or disabilities. For example, our pottery wheels are mobile and work on a table or on the floor.

Minimum 6, maximum 16 students per session.

This program takes place at the CRCS Afterschool Program at Ryder School.
