About Portside’s ASAP!
Portside’s After School Arts Program awakens inner creativity, develops 21st-century skills as well as builds self-esteem and confidence. The Portside’s After School Arts Program introduces children to the fundamentals of arts education through a hands-on visual arts curriculum. Portside aligned their forty-two-week program with the seven elements of arts; line, shape, form, value, space, color and texture. Students work through each segment building a strong foundation of visual arts skills, developmental skills, and techniques.
Portside’s ASAP allows students to experience many different art forms such as; drawing, painting, printmaking, clay sculpture, mosaic, fiber arts, puppetry, found object sculpture and more. Many lessons are formed around well-known artists allowing students to develop an appreciation for artists, art history, and other cultures.
