Art Expression, Inc. offers area school districts a variety of programming opportunities, including the organizations main basic programs as well as its unique STEAM programs. In 2016, programming took place at 18 schools in 9 school districts, with classes ranging from 6 to 8 weeks in length. The duration of each individual class is two hours, totaling 12 to 18 hours of programming per session. Participating schools normally offer two sessions per school year, fall and spring, though some run multiple weekly sessions.
Art Expression programs are open to all students who wish to participate, with some students self-enrolling while others are invited by school faculty or counselors who feel that the students would benefit from the program. All classes take place in the students’ usual school building to provide a setting where they feel comfortable and secure. Each year, Art Expression seeks out additional schools districts to initiate programming in new areas and expand its reach ever farther.
