Our youth are future artists and audience for the arts. The goal of WNAC’s seven month After School Art Program is to offer visual arts education to grades 1-3 and 4-6 using the Nebraska State Standards for Fine Arts Education as a guide. Students will develop skills to create, present, respond to, and connect art with the human experience.
Through exploration of media—painting, drawing, printmaking, collage, sculpture, applied design, and technology—they will begin to develop an understanding of the principles of art and elements of design, deepening their expressive and critical faculties, honing their art skills, and cultivating their imagination. Each child will create a portfolio of their work throughout the program and have the opportunity to participate in a gallery exhibit during the month of April.

Experts agree: More art, ASAP!
“When young people are involved with the arts, something changes in their lives.” – Champions of Change: The Impact of the Arts on Learning, 1999, Arts Education Partnership and the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities.
According to Nebraskans for the Arts, students of the arts outperform their non-arts peers on the SAT.
Art is a safe venue for children to express their individuality, dreams, and ideas.
The National Art & Education Association says that art helps children think globally. Art exposure of diverse cultures and viewpoints helps children accept differences in their peers and in society.
72% of business leaders say that creativity is the number one skill they are seeking when hiring. – Americans For the Arts, Ready to Innovate, Lichtenberg, J., Woock, C., & Wright, M. (2008).
