After School Arts Program – ASAP SLA

What makes ASAP unique is our approach with a trauma informed lens. We offer, as an option Creative Arts Therapy, and licensed Expressive Arts Therapists to join our workshops. Writing is therapeutic, and can be triggering — so we approach each cohort with sensitivity and provide the tools needed for young people to express themselves.
This summer, ASAP is integrating Math and ELA with the unique lens of filmmaking, enhancing the math experience by introducing film budgeting, line producing and accounting. In addition to bringing in top producers and actors to facilitate classes on each aspect of film production (Directing, Director of Photography, Producing, Acting and Writing).

Students will get the chance to see how everyday skills, and academics can be a creative and artful experience leading to careers in the arts and film industries. We have also integrated S.T.E.A.M into our SY23 program and will continue on this summer with building out an animation as a final summer project, which began this school year.
