Beyond the Bell - Fall 2022

Please email to sign up for Beyond the Bell classes.


All students who participate in classes will go to aftercare and have a snack before being picked up by their instructor.

Art Camp

A Beyond the Bell camp well-suited for the kids who doodle in their margins, the ones who would rather read or draw than play kickball. Learn about the basics of art and create masterpieces in the process! Instructor Caroline May is GWA alumna currently attending the Lamar Dodd School of Art at UGA. Now, she wants to share her knowledge and love of art and making with the kids at GWA aftercare. She wants to open the doors of possibility, like they were opened for her in high school art, allowing children to not only make art, but immerse themselves in art, and learn about why we make art the way that we do.
