Create Away After School Program

Create Away is a digital after school program held over Zoom where elementary-aged students can connect with others, socialize with peers, and flex their creative skills under the guidance of our Arts Instructors who specialize in various visual, performing, and digital arts mediums. The goal of Create Away is to give students a supportive virtual environment to come together, have fun, and foster creative expression from home.

Create Away will run from 3:30pm to 5:30pm, Monday through Thursday. 5-year-olds may register if enrolled in kindergarten. Create Away lesson plans are based on TEKS (Texas Education Knowledge and Skills) in the arts. This program will be free but will require registration and a completed waiver to attend. A basic supply kit will be provided.

At Create Away, we will be exploring the theme of Storytelling through visual, performing, and digital arts. We will tell and be told of stories from different times, places, cultures, and settings. We will examine the process of building a story, sharing with with others, and how stories may change over time.
