Arts After School

On Monday, October 1, 2018 Young Audiences Arts for Learning of Northeast Texas will begin its first ever, and Tyler ISD’s only , Arts Based After School Program .  

Thanks to a grant from Texas Women for the Arts, a program of the Texas Cultural Trust , Young Audiences was able to fulfill a critical need at Tyler ISD’s Bonner Elementary.  Approximately 96 % of the students on this campus are considered economically disadvantaged, giving them few options for arts enrichment activities outside of the school day. Young Audiences and the Bonner administration are committed to providing , at no cost, full access to enhanced arts experiences for these students

The program design is a 2 hour and 20-minute program 4 days per week for the entire school year. Art sessions will be led by qualified Young Audiences teaching artists and Tyler ISD Fine Arts teachers contracted to work with the program. Twice a year there will be a program wide culminating event where students can share their work with their parents and the community.
