Arts Programs

These initiatives help young people enhance self-expression and creativity, develop multicultural appreciation, and develop skills in crafts, and visual, performing, and literary arts.

Art Club

Members participate in a variety of fun and challenging arts projects. Kids will work with many different materials that will enhance the imagination and encourage creativity. Most projects will take one session to complete. See the chart below for times and days.


This drop-in program is an introductory woodworking class. Members learn to use hand tools to cut, file, and shape wood into animal-, fantasy-, and sports-themed wood projects. Students then learn how to prepare for and paint their projects. Projects take 2-4 weeks to complete. See the chart below for times and days.

Advanced Woodcrafts

For the student that enjoys the regular woodcrafts program but wants to take it one step further.  Wood, plastic, metal, and many other materials will be used to build and “plus” their design.  Projects with moving parts will also be explored.  Pre-registration is strongly recommended as class size is limited.  For further information click here.

Creative Arts

On Monday nights the Club is offering a creative arts program for members ages 10 & up.  Special projects that will challenge kids to think outside the box will be offered.  Pre-registration is recommended as space is limited.  Click here for further information.
