Tips for Running an After-School Art Program – Art Made Easy 010

Kathy Barbro from Art Projects for Kids speaks with Patty Palmer on Art Made Easy about her after school art program

Kathy Barbro was one of the first art educators to offer online art resources through her site, Art Project for Kids.  No doubt you have seen or purchased her wonderful artist-inspired collaborative murals for your students to color. After speaking with Kathy for the first time in January, I realized there was so much more to Kathy than how-to-draw handouts.

Kathy is a busy gal.

Not only does she teach full-time in Southern California and manages her blog, but she runs a thriving after-school art program. This is where we spent some time. Kathy shares her story of how her after-school program works, how she manages the time and how the financial benefit of the after-school program has changed her life.

This episode is for anyone wishing to learn more about the logistics of operating an after-school art program as well as teaching tips from one of the best art teachers around.

Make sure to download Kathy’s free After-School Art Program How-to Guide. She shares exactly how she runs the program and shares what her flyers look so that you may be inspired to do the same.

Kathy is truly the most wonderful, giving people I know.  I hope you enjoy getting to meet her.

    Dear Patty

    Thank you for your awesome podcasts. The remind me that I have to start somewhere and that I am not alone as a first time art teacher.
    I’m always so excited to prepare lessons after listening to your podcasts.

    I hope you will be able to put together a podcast on how to incorporate art history into lessons for different ages. I’m really struggling with it.

    Thank you again!

    Every child is born with a natural curiosity, creativity and desire to understand the world around them. Quality afterschool programs can help to ignite this passion and make learning fun, relevant and engaging. Great topic! Thanks!
