After-School Arts Club (ASAC) 2019-2020

Important Update on ASAC Care

 

Due to a large increase in enrollments this school year space in our After-School Arts Club is limited. Our transportation vehicles in particular are at capacity at many schools. We may still have room from select schools on select days, but it is very difficult for us to track phone calls and emails in a timely and efficient manner.

 

If your family is interested in After-School Arts Club care, please take a moment to fill out our request form here. Families that fill out the form will be added to the waitlist and the program coordinator will contact you as soon as possible if we have space available.

Thank you so much for your interest, and we hope we can provide excellent care to as many families as possible!


Exceptional arts-based childcare for students before and after their classes

At Portland Metro Arts, our mission is to provide everyone the opportunity to learn, perform, and experience the arts! To help us meet our mission, we offer a special supervised childcare program for students in Kindergarten – 8th Grade who are enrolled in our classes during the week.

ASAC students are provided with healthy snacks, homework time, weekly art projects, and a variety of other stimulating activities and games. ASAC is offered Monday - Friday from 2:15 - 6:00 p.m.

As part of the program, we also offer After-School Transportation from select area schools. This year we plan to pick up from: Atkinson, Bridger, Cherry Park, CSS, Floyd Light, Glencoe, Harrison Park, Laurelhurst, Portland Arthur Academy, Rose City Park, Ventura Park, and Vestal (including ACCESS at Vestal). If your student attends a school that is within 3 miles of our location but is not on this list, please contact us and we may be able to accomodate you.

 

Due to high enrollment the process to enroll in ASAC has changed. To enroll in the After-School Arts Club, please follow these steps:

  1. Take a look at our schedule of after-school classes and pick out the ones your child is interested in (scroll over the class name to see details)::
