ABOUT ASALA

The After School Arts for Learning Academy (ASALA) program offers students an opportunity to imagine, create, and express who they are through the arts!

ASALA is a FREE Baltimore City Public Schools program designed and operated by Arts for Learning Maryland. This arts-integrated after school program is modeled after our award-winning Summer Arts for Learning Academy.

At ASALA, students will participate in three hours of extended academic learning and enrichment per day for four days each week at Arundel Elementary. There, students will be introduced to a wide variety of art forms—from illustration and spoken word to percussion, drama, and dance—and learn from professional artists.

ASALA is an evidence-based, full-service after school program providing students with:

  • A Creative & Supportive Learning Environment
  • Homework Time
  • Arts-Integrated Math & Literacy
  • Arts Explorations, Athletics, & Robotics
BRIEF PROGRAM OVERVIEW

All ASALA classes begin with “SQUADS,” focusing on developing social-emotional skills and building a creative and caring community. Students will advance their math and literacy skills through arts-integrated instruction and dive deep into new arts experiences and robotics! When possible, students will move outside with their class for recess.
