Youth Arts Programs
The Center for Community Arts is committed to fostering creativity for the area's youth. We do this free of cost through two programs: Art at the Library (AATL) for children aged 6 to 9 and Youth Arts Program (YAP) for children aged 9 to 14. Local artists are the teachers and each weekly sessions offers a myriad of mediums for the children to learn and explore.
Building community through art education and creativity
Come join teacher Penelope Cake for an enjoyable hour of story telling and art project. For all children ages 6 to 9.
WHEN: Tuesdays at Wildwood Crest Library; Wednesdays at Lower Township Library; and Thursdays at the Cape May City Library
TIMES: 3:30 to 4:30 pm, through May 18th, 2017.
There will be no AATL if there is no school that day.
CCA offers a class for elementary school children that explores creative thinking through movement, visual art, and writing during the school day. Each class has a theme and students will be led through activities in all three disciplines to explore that theme in weekly one and a half hour class sessions. Both independent and group work is used with an emphasis on self-awareness and positive group dynamics. This class is taught by local artist, Penelope Cake.
Local children aged 9 to 14 join local artists and their assistants who plan fun/creative curriculum for each week. Each week's curriculum offers children a chance to use the many mediums of art while exploring their talent and imagination.
