Through our sought out After School program and its creative youth development curriculum, students develop the skills necessary to become Creative Artists, Courageous Allies, Critical Thinkers, and Confident Leaders. Our program engages students in hands-on activities that deepen connections to lessons learned in the classroom while expanding their social and emotional development. Students participate in activities that include visual art, filmmaking, music, puppetry, creative writing, acting and more.

We believe all students deserve access to high-quality arts enrichment. As a 501c3 nonprofit, Creative Action offers fee-based, sliding scale and free After School programming based on individual and campus needs. Currently, we provide After School programming to 54 campuses each week in Austin, Bastrop, Del Valle, Eanes, Manor and Round Rock Independent School Districts, reaching 3,000 youth.

Creative Action After School is currently available at the following elementary schools: Baranoff, Becker, Brentwood, Bryker Woods, Center for Creative Action (with transportation from Austin Peace Academy, Blackshear, Campbell, and UT Elementary), Gullett, Maplewood, Ridgetop, Sunset Valley, and Travis Heights. We’ve also added Blanton Elementary and Cunningham Elementary as new sites for the 2017-18 School Year.
