**NEW AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAM**

Looking for a fun, creative, educational club for your child? Ask the CAC staff about the brand new year-long after-school Art Club!

Thanks to the Arundel Community Development Services (ACDS), the Chesapeake Arts Center is able to offer tuition assistance to Anne Arundel County residents who live in Northern Anne Arundel County; especially in Brooklyn Park, Glen Burnie, Severn, and surrounding communities.  The after-school club meets every day, M-F, from 3:00pm to 5:30pm starting on September 9, 2019 at the Chesapeake Arts Center! In this new program, we will motivate students in grades 6-8 from Brooklyn Park Middle school to express themselves in new ways and to find their sources of inspiration. Our program, held at the Chesapeake Arts Center, mirrors the many disciplines offered at the center and will be taught by our professional instructors  who encourage new ways of thinking, seeing, and doing.

If you have any questions, please contact our Education Coordinator, Tyler Fairnholt at 410-636-6597 or tyler@chesapeakearts.,org. Register forms are available in the CAC main office OR click here for the application!
