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.
