How Does Registration Work?
Register for After School Art online by selecting the days you need for the season. A 50% deposit is made at registration and the remaining half of your balance is due in two payments at weeks 4 and 8. We send monthly First Friday emails to update you on program reminders, important dates and alert you to payment due dates. Call us for inquiries about alternative payment schedules. Late sign-ups can not be prorated and day switches within seasons cannot be accommodated.
No School Days
Half-Day Vacation Camps are aligned with the SDP calendar and are only offered on public school early dismissal days. You must be an enrolled ASA artist to be picked up from school on early dismissal days and the program goes until 3pm unless it is your regular ASA day. Half-Day Vacation camps require online preregistration, dates will be up for the entire school year and registration closes the week before programming or once full. We are not able to pick-up on unplanned, early dismissal days, like for inclement weather.
