Afterschool Art Classes
Join us for a whole new school year of BRAND NEW projects! Let's get messy and make time for creativity! While Firefly Art has always taught drawing skills, with a variety of art media, we do more than that! We teach our students to draw as a secondary means of communication, relish in the creative process, and design creative solutions when "mistakes" happen. This year, we've got more paintbrush action, more sticky glue crafts, and more local artist spotlights coming your way!

Afterschool Coding Classes
HoneyCode familiarizes students with the basics of coding, while encouraging creativity and storytelling. This year, we are focusing our efforts on learning game-design principles, coding widgets to keep scores in game-play etc. The program's curriculum is designed to teach logical and computational thinking skills, fundamental principles of programming, and object-oriented programming.

Afterschool Chess Classes
At Chess Academy, we don’t just play chess, we teach chess! Our comprehensive program offers multiple levels and all of our classes are led by an instructor with new lessons each week. A typical class consists of an extensive lecture following game-play, where students practice what they've learned that day. Chess is a wonderful educational opportunity to help build a child’s ability to focus and understand the art of strategy at an early age. Chess Academy is open to all levels, beginner to advanced.
