ART After School: A successful way to reach youth in your neighborhood is based on over 13 years of real-life experience with after-school art programs for primarily disadvantaged youth in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. ART After School was written as an inspiration and guide to develop and/or incorporate arts programming into after-school programs for children and teenagers, especially those considered to be at-risk.

ART After School shows how to take after-school activities beyond the walls of the program by illustrating how to involve neighbors, businesses and schools from kindergartens through universities. By involving all segments of the community, an after-school program presents children with rich and dynamic experiences to bridge businesses, community leaders and college students from a variety of disciplines to families who would otherwise have no access to these opportunities.
ART After School is a blueprint on how to integrate arts programming into an on-going after-school program.
Why art? The arts provide another dimension to help reinforce academics, teach problem solving techniques and inspire creativity while giving kids a chance to have fun and just be kids.
ART After School gives concrete suggestions and pitfalls to avoid when writing grants as well as other fundraising ideas to help a program operate with a balance of funding sources.
