Creativity Club (C-Club) is an after school program that is held at participating AISD elementary schools and on-site at the Dougherty Arts School. Students explore arts educational programming through lessons taught in various artistic mediums and disciplines. Creativity Club’s curriculum follows a process-based learning model with lesson plans developed by our Instructors in response to monthly themes that emphasize cultural studies, art history, and creative techniques. This method allows every project to be responsive to the students’ creative interests as well as incorporate the Instructors’ own artistic expertise. Instructors are carefully chosen so that each site provides diverse cultural arts experiences for all participants in the areas of visual, performing and media arts.
The goal of C-Club is to provide students the time and space to develop individual creative expression through group participation in structured and intentional recreation activities and arts lessons. The four components that make this after school program a success include providing time for a healthy snack, academic assistance, arts education and active play.
Please Note: Teacher-to-student ratios are maintained at a minimum of 1:12. Students are grouped by age. Snacks are not provided by the program; please send an extra snack with your student. May and June tuition payments are combined.
