Fall 2020
After School Enrichment PODS
for grades 1 through 5

This has been a year like no other for all of us, especially for our children and those who work in the world of education.  At Artsy Smartsy, we understand the need for our schools and their families to make unique choices this season with regard to where and how the children will continue their learning.

In light of this, we have developed ASE Learning PODS, offering  a curriculum of some of our best received enrichment courses which the kids can paricipate in based on their learning schedules.  We have a number of classes for kids from Grades 1 through 5, presented weekdays, in person at our Caldwell studio, mid afternoon (1:45 - 3:00) and late afternoon (3;15 - 4:30),  We hope that you will enjoy our imaginative, super creative and fun enrichment experiences in a whole new way this year!

Our PODS are limited to 5 children each so that we can maintain social distancing at all times.  Masks and hand sanitizer are provided for everyone.  Handwashing midway through each lesson and as needed.

Classes run weekly for 10 weeks, beginning  October 5 and ending December 18, 2020. No classes November 23 - 27.

Enrollment closes on September 20
