program at AMSET, Art After
School offers an enriching art

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!
