Trailhead After-School Programs
Looking for art-based after-school programming this school year? The Trailhead Children’s Museum is offering new programs that start this week for kids to come be creative, play and explore at the new museum space at the old Center for the Arts. Kindergarten Fridays take place every Friday from 1:40-5 p.m. It’s a great half day program for the kindergarteners to explore, play on the new playground right behind the Trailhead and create art at the museum. After School Art for K-5th grade will take place on Mondays and Thursdays from 3:45-5 p.m. Trailhead art instructors will teach new mediums of art each week. To find out more about After-School Programs and to register, visit www.trailheadkids.org. The Trailhead is holding limited hours this September and October at its new home in the lobby of the old Center for the Arts. Stay tuned for more exciting Trailhead news!
