Class Experience

Figment’s After School Enrichment Program offers a variety of opportunities for your child to engage in creative play and critical thinking through process art, tinkering and STEAM-centric projects.

We offer free shuttle service from Mills, Boone, and qualifying Elementary Schools.

Our program runs Monday through Friday, from 3:30 to 5:30PM. Upon arrival each afternoon, we bring our water bottles and packed snacks outside for snack and playtime.

After playtime, we go to the Discovery Lab or the Art Studio, where kids explore a teacher-guided project, work on their own self-guided project and play with our art and building supplies.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
This program integrates all the concepts we believe in at Figment: S.T.E.A.M. principles, maker mentality, process art and play-based learning.

S.T.E.A.M.
Heard of STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math)? We believe that adding Art to the equation increases interest and fosters creativity. Because of this hands-on approach to learning, kids get excited about learning and working together as a team.

PROCESS ART
We believe the process of making art is more important than the outcome. As such, adults are there to guide children by providing the right materials, teach technique and assist along the way. When children take charge of their own creative process, they practice critical thinking, make their own decisions and build confidence. As our artists get older and more interested in new mediums and techniques, we work on skill-building.

MAKER MENTALITY
Our dedicated Maker Space expands on the foundation of STEAM. Students learn through hands-on, often collaborative projects. This project-based approach builds your maker’s confidence and encourages analytic problem-solving.

PLAY-BASED LEARNING
Part of our child-directed philosophy is play-based learning. Play is the basis of experimental learning and the Discovery Lab offers something to engage everyone. It’s a place where your child can be anything, a fashion designer, an engineer, a scientist. They can also just grab a book or play a game with friends.
