After-School Program

Beginning in the Fall of 2009, Blue Wall Group has provided the surrounding community with art classes for children ranging from animation to dance.

Current Offerings

Blue Wall Group is re-starting our popular program of after-school classes, this time at Slater-Marietta Lion's Club on Slater Road!
 
A Taste of Art >>>
On January 16th (teacher workday) and January 19th (Martin Luther King Day) we invite children from 5 – 15 to come to our Free Art Days. Parents can drop their children off at the Lions Club in Slater from 9 am and pick them up no later than 4 pm. Children need to bring a bag lunch if they are staying all day. There is no charge for these days, but we encourage donations to support our program.

Camps

We are currently making plans for the 2014 Summer Camp. Please, check back for more information.

Blue Wall Group camp is usually suitable for children from ages 5 +. We have a fun-filled program featuring music, dance, art, and pottery in the mornings, and drama, film/animation and more art in the afternoons. Camp begins at 10:00 a.m. each day,  with lunch breaks from 12:00 p.m.to 1 pm, during which we show an animated movie that sets up ideas for the afternoons activities. We finish at 4 pm. On Friday there will be a showing of work done including live action and/or animation films. The cost is $100 per participant per week, or $60 for a half day (10 - 1 or 1 - 4.) There is also a $15 materials fee and we ask for a $30 deposit on registration. Members of Blue Wall Group are eligible for discounts. There is also a second child discount. For more information or to register, please call Peter Godfrey  at 864-387-7840 or contact him by email at bluewallgroup@ymail.com.  See our website bluewallgroup.webs.com.
