Where Young Minds Flourish After School

Creative Labs is Fleisher’s innovative after-school program, offering young people in kindergarten through fifth grade a nourishing and fun after-school experience. Fleisher’s extraordinary faculty and staff create engaging and age-appropriate curricula that use art to encourage creativity and critical thinking. Creative Labs is where young artists can begin to ask and answer questions about who they are and how they seek to define themselves. Free walking pickup is available from several neighborhood schools.

Pricing: $390 per class Monday–Thursday. The class held on Fridays, “The Creative Laboratory,” is an open studio and is priced at $240. The more they create, the more you save! Register for all five classes for $1,440. Tuition assistance is available and forms are accepted on a rolling basis.

Note: While we originally planned to relaunch Creative Labs for the Winter 2022 term, we have decided to wait until spring due to ongoing concerns about student and staff safety related to COVID-19. 

We appreciate that this has been a difficult time for young people and their families, and that this change in after-school plans may present additional difficulties as you plan for winter. While we’re sad not to be seeing your young ones after school, we’re looking forward to welcoming them back onsite in the safest conditions possible. Please stay on our email lists and keep an eye out in your inbox or on our website for updates regarding Creative Labs, Fleisher’s vaccination policies, and other youth program offerings.
