after school program
The after-school program at CREATE is designed to provide fun and supportive environment to help grow your child's creativity. Each day a teacher from CREATE will greet your child after school at Maxwell Elementary then walk to CREATE where children may stay until 5:30 pm. In this relaxed atmosphere, children ages 5-11, your child will learn to have fun with art while practicing the basic elements of art, including various types of artistic styles and art history influences. Children are also provided opportunities to design and build creative projects in our makerspace during their free time and have unstructured free play at Woodland Park (weather permitting).
