Abstract

After school clubs are a rite of passage for students and their development. When children are at the age where they are encouraged to participate and a sense of community and belonging are crucial, after school clubs provide that. In this action research project, I am hoping to discover the benefits of having an after school art club for high school students. There is intrinsic and extrinsic value to providing an after school program; building a sense of community and belonging through sharing a certain interest, increasing students to take pride in their artwork and increasing engagement in their classes.
