AFTERSCHOOL PROGRAMS

After school activities are offered on a first responder basis by our Middle School Moving Images and Art Teacher, Arin Dineen.
 
Please email office@santafeschool.org with your student’s name and club choice and pay here to reserve your spot.

Monday Animation Club

Open to students in 5th – 8th grades (younger students may be admitted on a case-by-case basis).
Join Animation Club for a weekly dive into the world of Stop Motion Animation!
All you need to make professional quality animations is a camera, access to the free Stop Motion Studio app (on phone, tablet, or computer), and a lot of creativity!
Students will learn techniques to create high-quality animations using just the materials around them.
They will be assigned weekly animation challenges, and get to show off what they made to each other each week in our zoom sessions.
Mondays, 4:30 – 5:15 $65/fall semester
Tuesday or Thursday:  Open to students in 6th – 8th grades (younger students may be admitted on a case-by-case basis).

Wednesday’s Artist’s Studio

Open to students in 7th & 8th grades (younger students may be admitted on a case-by-case basis)
Join accomplished artist & oil painter Arin in the Artist’s Studio to build up your art portfolio! 
This club will focus on developing artistic technique and skills through learning to create realistic work. 
Each week we will practice life drawing and figure drawing, as well as introducing new materials and larger creative projects that students can work on outside of class.
This club is especially recommended for any students who are hoping to apply to NMSA for Visual Art. 
As we get closer to the application deadline, students will also receive support around portfolio-building, interview preparation, and what to expect at their audition.
You can view Arin’s personal portfolio at www.arindineen.com
Wednesdays, 3:30 – 5:00 $60/fall semester

Dungeons & Dragons Club

Join gamemaster Arin on an epic adventure that will take you from the far reaches of outer space to the darkest dungeons in this fantasy role-playing game! 
Students will create characters and work together to tell a collaborative story using the D&D game system. 
D&D is a wonderful tool for students to build communication skills, explore their identity through playing different characters, and work together as a team with their peers – all while adventuring through a magical world! 
This club will take place virtually, over zoom and the Roll20 platform.
Please make sure that, if your student is signed up on a day they will be on campus, they will have enough time to get home and have a snack before the game starts.
Tuesdays ($156/fall semester) 4:15 – 6:15 or Thursdays (FULL)
