After-School Arts Club (ASAC) 2019-2020

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;

  2. Fill out the form found HERE with the days that you will need care and submit it. Our office will contact you as soon as possible and let you know if there is a space from your school;

  3. Once you've been accepted into the After-School Arts Club you may complete your registration

Please note: ASAC is not a stand-alone childcare program. ASAC is a service offered to students enrolled in PMA classes at an additional cost. Students enrolled in one day of class may sign up for two days of care, students enrolled in two or more days of class may sign up for four days, and students enrolled in three or more days of class may sign up for five days of ASAC if they so desire.

Monthly Cost
ASAC charges are billed monthly based on the number of days each week your student is enrolled in our care. The table below can be used to estimate your family’s childcare costs when using the ASAC program:
