Creativity Club After School Arts

Creativity Club is an after school program held at the Dougherty Arts Center. Students engage in TEKS-aligned arts lessons in various areas of visual and performing arts. The goal is to provide students with a supportive, collaborative space to express themselves creatively.

Creativity Club runs concurrently with the AISD schedule. 5-year-olds may attend if enrolled in kindergarten. Pack a nut-free snack for your student specifically for after school. Arrival times can vary depending on transportation. The program ends at 6pm. Our student-to-teacher ratio is 10:1, and students will be split into groups based on age.
