After School

After School Art Enrichment

Art With a Heart provides high quality after school art classes to a variety of Indianapolis area schools & community centers. Our after school curriculum is designed to support a growth in cultural understanding through art experiences.  As our world becomes increasingly smaller, it is important to educate our students about different ideas, processes, and ways of life.  Art is an excellent avenue to discover, understand, and promote respect for the differences and similarities of communities across the globe.  Our curriculum highlights a variety of locations around the globe and continues to explore various art processes and subject matter.  Core curriculum standards are incorporated into the art lessons to reinforce and encourage academic success.

Art With a Heart’s After School Collaborative Teacher Program work directly with the each school’s art teacher, providing an opportunity for Indianapolis art teachers to offer additional art classes to interested students at their school.  To be a Collaborative Teacher, an instructor must:

  • Receive approval (in writing) from your principal to use your classroom, at no charge, during the after school hours to teach the program
  • Attend teacher training & curriculum sharing workshop
  • Promote the program using the materials provided
  • Register students, collect fees from parents if necessary, take photographs and fulfill administrative tasks (attendance, program surveys, etc.)
  • Host an exhibit at your school (inviting parents and school staff) after each program

Art With a Heart offers competitive part-time pay.  If you would like to be considered for the Collaborative Teacher program, please contact Hannah Giere at (317) 602-7222 x1 or
