AfterSchool Programs

Bridge is a free after-school art club for creative 6th graders to connect to themselves, each other, and the community through quality creative experiences.

Over weekly sessions club members become a tight knit group of supportive artists, learning to be themselves and find their unique voices in a judgement-free zone.

Some things our Bridge students get up to throughout the year:
  • learning and exploring art materials and techniques
  • learning leadership skills and developing character through service opportunities
  • becoming a real part of the local art scene through gallery visits and public events

Bridge Jr.

Our current session, for 1st and 2nd graders, is full. Check back for our next session, for 3rd -5th graders, later this spring!

Bridge Jr is an afterschool creativity club geared for elementary school-aged students. Young artists get a chance to play, socialize, and enjoy different art projects every week.

Currently, Bridge Jr. takes place at 
Captain Albert Stevens Elementary School (CASS) on Fridays, after early release, and is open only to CASS students. Location and day changes semester to semester, depending on the needs of Waldo County students and families. 

Young Artists Studio

Register or Drop in.

Open 2:30PM – 5PM

Once a week, the Bridge Studio at Waterfall Arts welcomes artists aged 8-18 to explore materials and techniques on their own. Our educator assists artists one-on-one, encouraging creative experimentation and introducing new skills. Students may choose to put on headphones and disappear into their sketchbook or sit with friends and socialize while working together. This program is pay-what-you-can, if you can, with a donation jar beside the sign in sheet. First time attendees must pre-register online or have a parent at drop-off to fill out a contact form.

Being a "good artist" is NOT criteria for being in Bridge. Any sixth grader who likes making stuff and being creative will love it.
