Art After School

 Art-To-Go



Art After School is a multi-visit after school program available to all fourth-grade students in selected schools. 

Students come to AMSET for a series of intensive art experiences.


The students tour exhibits, become familiar with museum environments and create hands-on art activities. A highly successful program at AMSET, Art After School offers an enriching art opportunity unlike most participants have experienced.

Art After School here.

Art-To-Go is AMSET’s primary outreach program. This mobile program brings art education and hands-on art experience into classrooms, libraries, senior centers and neighborhood centers across our region. We think of Art-To-Go as our “seeding program,” sowing the seeds of art education and appreciation as broadly as possible.

Art-To-Go takes AMSET on the road!
