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 one day a week afterschool for a 90 minute class 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 (for their personal use). KickStART is available to students K-6 and is open only to students enrolled in the school. Price varies based on the amount of classes per semester at each school. See the Info & Registration button at the bottom of this page for the price at your child's school.

Discounts are available to First Coast Cultural Center members!
