Educational Programs

We offer a variety of educational programs for community children, adults, and families, and will offer even more as the ArtsAltoona Center grows. We offer an After School Arts Program (ASAP) for primarily junior high school students, a Learning Pod program for students completing distance learning, summer camps, workshops, and more. Through our After School Arts Program, we have been able to branch out into different locations in Blair County, including various schools, the Family Services Teen Center, Evergreen Manor, and most recently the ArtsAltoona Center! We hope to provide even more exciting educational opportunities in the arts and outside of the arts to the local community.

ASAP

The After School Arts Program (ASAP) was launched in January 2018 as an initiative of ArtsAltoona. The goal of this program is to integrate the arts into after school programming throughout Blair County, creating an environment which will build confidence and strengthen talents of area youth through the arts.

With the help of many local artists and volunteers, we are committed to giving at-risk, disengaged, and underprivileged youth the opportunity to not only appreciate the arts, but engage in creating something beautiful both with their hands and in their hearts. (more)

Learning Pods

ArtsAltoona offers a new type of space for students to complete their distance learning. Middle and Elementary School students will complete assignments in a socially-distanced, clean, and supervised learning “pod,” in our facilities. (more)

Summer Camps

ArtsAltoona offers a variety of Summer Camp opportunities for area youth.  Camps follow several different arts-based themes, such as Drawing, Painting, Dance, Music, and Poetry.
