The After School Arts Program (ASAP) provides arts education to elementary, middle and high school students. The program provides the fundamentals of art techniques, themes, and concepts in the four core areas of arts. Participants have the opportunity to learn the basics of each medium as well as improve their existing skills in these areas. There is room for advancement in the education process as students have the ability to continue to learn new skills as their own abilities increase and improve. The ultimate goal of the After School Arts Education Program is to broaden the knowledge of elementary, middle and high school students by introducing them to the world of the arts, which today is not generally part of their school curriculum.
