After School Arts Program

After School Arts Program

This free program is designed to make a meaningful difference in the lives of youth in our community. ASAP breaks down barriers, inspires the creative spirit, provides gap programming, and gives youth a positive expressive outlet. The structure of this vision is centered in exploring the arts, including non-traditional forms. The arts provide another dimension to help reinforce academics, teach problem solving techniques, and inspire creativity. TAF believes in equal access to the arts for everyone.

Most classes meet at the Tippecanoe Arts Federation from the hours of 4:00-6:30pm. Use the West entrance off the TAF parking lot, located off 6th street; classes are held in the first floor rooms. Advanced registration is required and is on a first come, first served basis with preference to first-time program participants. Early enrollment is encouraged. The registration deadline for each class is two weeks before the class starts.

Students and guardians are required to commit to the program by attending all sessions of the class they enroll in. Please call TAF at 765.423.2787 if the student is unable to attend or will be late to class.

ASAP follows the Lafayette School Corporation’s school calendar and weather-related closings. Make-up classes are scheduled when possible.

Member Organizations and Member Artists of TAF act as instructors for this program.
