Kick StART Afterschool Art Program

Kick StART

Kick StART is an after-school art enrichment program that introduces students to master artists. Students are taught various foundational art skills and explore lines, shapes, texture, color, and contour, learning how to utilize a variety of mediums in tandem with these foundational skills. The benefits of this program go much further than creating a well-rounded artistic skillset. Students develop their motor skills and communication skills. They learn to problem solve and make decisions throughout the creative process.  Students’ executive functioning and ability to empathize are also enhanced through art classes.  Many students find art to be a stress reliever.

Kick StART allows each student to develop their personal creative point of view. They are taught the skills to execute class projects, given an inspiration piece as a jumping off point, and encouraged to take the project in their own direction.  The class becomes a family, where each student is valued and affirmed in their abilities to explore, create, and communicate. Kick StART builds students’ confidence, creative expression, and executive function, all wrapped up in a FUN art class environment.

Kick StART meets weekly afterschool for fifteen weeks each semester. Students can enroll for a single semester or for both. As part of COVID protocols (following both the CDC & St Johns Public School procedures), students bring their own supplies; these supplies cost approximately $15 and are not shared. KickStART is available to students in K-5 and 6-8 and is open to all students enrolled in the school. Class is $295 for current First Coast Cultural Center members and $325 for non-members.

Kick StART Drama: Ready, Set, Act!

Kick StART
 
Kick StART Drama is an after-school drama enrichment program that introduces students to many forms of acting, including theater, tv/film, and improv, learning foundational skills in a fun and dynamic class. The largest benefit from early drama classes is practicing communication, which improves public speaking and writing skills, and team collaboration. The advantages lend support to STEAM programming while fostering imagination, confidence, and self-expression. Studies have also shown that drama classes improve students’ academic achievements, attitudes, and empathy for others. It is important for students to find their creative niche. In Kick StART Drama, students are always encouraged to explore, create, and communicate in a fun and safe drama class environment.

KickStART Drama instructor Sheri Lahris has 35 years in the business, having worked on Disney and MGM Studios sets with actors on shows like “The Mickey Mouse Club” and “Saved by the Bell,” including Macaulay Culkin, Keri Russell, and Ryan Gosling.

Class meets weekly afterschool for 15 weeks each semester. Students can enroll for a single semester or for both. KickStART is available to students in K-5 and 6-8 and is open to all students enrolled in the school. One Session is $295 for current First Coast Cultural Center members and $325 for non-members.
