For the 2019-2020 school year, we will be offering Aftercare for students from 3:00 – 5:30 pm Mondays through Fridays, as well as exciting After School Enrichment Classes.
Enrichment Class Descriptions
Beginning Guitar Group Class:
Lisa Stuart will be offering a group beginning guitar class this year.
During this course the student will study the fundamental techniques of playing the guitar, tuning, simple chords, strumming patterns, simple finger picking patterns, and several sing along songs. Students bring their own guitar (the office might have one if you need to borrow one). This class will be 1 hour long and will cost $25 + tax per student paid directly to Lisa, and will be held in the Grasshopper room on Thursdays from 3:30 to 4:30 pm.
Martial Arts with Master Bruce Finger:
Tang Soo Do is a traditional Korean martial art that teaches punching, kicking and self-defense skills. Build self-confidence and self-esteem, improve fitness and balance, while learning discipline and respect in an atmosphere based on family values. Master Bruce Finger, Raven Tang Soo Do, has been teaching the form since 1981.
Studio Art with Arin:
Calling all artists! Whether you’re working on building a portfolio for high school, or just want to improve your technique, the Artist’s workshop is a great place to hone your skills. Arin will guide students through a variety of projects exploring different techniques, materials, and themes in a small class with lots of time for critique and one-on-one advise.
Dungeons & Dragons with Arin:
Adventure awaits! Join game master Arin on a tabletop adventure where YOU are the main character of a fantasy story. Learn how to make characters, play the game, and even run your own. Please note: this is a game played mostly in the imagination, but also requires a heavy amount of reading and some math. Due to popular demand, please only sign up for one session.
Cards & Strategy Games with Andrew:
Card games have been played for centuries! During Cards & Strategy games we will play and explore fun games that help participants develop their own strategies to be successful. We will play head to head games like Cribbage, and team games like Euchre!
Piano with Kirsten Lawson:
Kirsten is happy to return for her sixth year at Arts & Sciences as piano teacher. She is an Alumni of both AMDA in New York City and Antioch College. Kirsten offers 30 minute lessons 3 days a week. She considers it a great joy to teach the children of Arts & Sciences.
Dove Woeltjen, Piano Teacher:
Dove creates a fun and individualized piano curriculum for your student. Piano lessons include technique, basic music theory, rhythm practice, musical games, composition, and listening exercises, with a basis of piano literature from historical and modern genres.
Math Club with Eric:
The Square Abacus™ Math Club will provide a place for enrichment, extension, tutoring, and practice. We will combine history and story with basic and advanced calculations and facts, games, problem solving and technical drawings, while supporting and supplementing the student’s current math level.
