Schools often provide afterschool activities for children dedicated to art and other subjects. Afterschool programs are also offered by community organizations such as YMCA or by some colleges and universities.
Parents must be aware of certain factors when choosing an art program for children. First, parents should select a program appropriate for their child's age and skill level. Second, parents must consider the cost of the program. Some art classes are completely free, while others charge an enrollment fee or require students to purchase their own supplies. Another important factor to consider is when a class is in session. Some classes are held on weekends, while others are in session after school or during evening hours.
