Artists in Schools: After School Arts Program Coordinator
The After School Arts program for the Key Peninsula Middle School takes place each Tuesday and runs from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. The program begins about one week after the start of school in September and concludes in late May.
Stephanie Flintoff, the After School Arts coordinator, organizes the various artists who will be working with the students and sees that the supplies needed are available. A session typically runs a month long, although they may run longer.
Stephanie also works on the students’ behalf. She takes roll, sees that they have after school snacks before starting work on the selected project, and sees that the students make connections either with their parents at the conclusion of the class or the bus that will take them home.
