St. James Town Programs

Art City’s St. James Town programs are at the heart of what we do. After-school classes and camp programs are available to children ages 6-13 years who reside in St. James Town. These programs are available free of charge to any resident of St. James Town.

This year we are offering classes in drawing, painting and mixed media. Students enrolled in our classes will participate in weekly group activities through interactive online lessons, games and art projects! On occasion there will also be opportunities for virtual field trips.

As class sizes are limited, each child can register for one class only. Class details and registration are updated each school term. For more details and to register check out the descriptions of our winter/spring classes below.
