After School

After School Program - LONG ISLAND CITY

Are you looking for a fun, creative and engaging after school program for your child?? Join us in the studio any number of days per week! Email us at with any questions.

Winter/Spring 2024 Registration is now OPEN below! Email us at with any questions.

Our After School Program is something your child will look forward to every day! It is a great solution if you are looking for an engaging, fun and creative place for your child to spend a few hours after school. It’s the most fun and creative after school program in Long Island City! Our teachers have plenty of experience building engaging and thoughtful art projects and activities for all ages that vary each week. A typical After School day with Art Strong starts off with snack,  the option for homework help, free play and  followed by an art making activity or project. Projects range from drawing, painting, sculpture, collage, printmaking, and more. Every day is always something new! Children will also experiment with new materials and even make art inspired by artists! In the Fall and Spring we hold an Art Show where we invite families and friends to view the amazing artwork that was created over the course of the session. 

We offer flexible options where you can join us 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 days per week. Registration is on a semester basis starting in either September or January. You can join the program at any time (space permitting). Register early to save your spot!

We follow the NYC DOE Calendar and are open for our after school program any day the NYC public schools are in session. After school is not in session during school breaks and holidays, snow days or any other school closures. There are no refunds/makeups in the above situations. Check below for days After School is not in session for the upcoming school year.
