In collaboration with the Beaumont Independent School District, AMSET's Art After School program brings fourth
graders from area Title I elementary schools (Martin Elementary, Fletcher Elementary, Charlton-Pollard Elementary,
and Dr. Mae Jones-Clark Elementary) to AMSET. A school bus transports the students to the museum and then to
their homes accompanied by a teacher's aide from their school. A very popular and successful program, Art After School
has a 99% participation level.
During the week-long program, students complete workshops introducing them to museums and the work of our
exhibiting artists. In addition, students are given the opportunity to create their own works of art and learn
about problem solving through art activities. For many of these children, this will mark their first museum visit. This
program is designed to make them comfortable entering any museum in any part of the world. Children from the
Art After School program often introduce their families to the museum and become repeat visitors to family events.
