Crayola World of Design After School Programs

Imagine Arts Academy presents Crayola World of Design after-school art programs, where kids use art concepts and techniques as a way to interact with and learn about the world. We put the emphasis on art as a problem-solving tool, as a career path, as a way to learn about different places and cultures, and more. 

Kids learn many different techniques, like sculpting, illustration, painting, and textile artistry. They take home Crayola art supplies so they can build on their in-class projects at home, and they make a different in-class project each week! Projects are based on your child's interpretation of each week's theme.
