Stepping Stones after-school Program has openings for teens.

 [From everything I have seen, this is an excellent program]
Community Stepping Stones is looking for 30 great teens who are committed to developing their art skills while improving their science and career knowledge. Our creative, after-school programs are designed for at-risk youth* interested in using art to inspire their learning and expand their critical thinking. These programs are offered free or at reduced costs for qualified students, but parental commitment is a key ingredient in student selection.  Teens are assigned to special programs depending on whether they want a career in creative work, or just want to grow their communication skills.
  • They enjoy learning from professional instructors, using quality equipment and supplies, and opportunities to experiment with different art techniques.
  • They meet people who “make things happen” in the community.
  • They gain new experiences including field trips to special events, museums and colleges where they participate in art shows and exhibitions.
  • They benefit from coaching which improves their school lessons performance.
  • They learn digital art, photography and web skills.
  • They create a portfolio of their work to present to future colleges.
  • They get assistance finding opportunities for college and careers.
All students must apply to be part of this special program. Register at an Open House or make a private appointment
