When a student enters CHAW for the after school arts program, he or she is welcomed into a community of artful thinking, creativity, and collaboration.   When not in class, students are invited to participate in village activities ranging from games to homework help to drop-in art projects.  Village time offers an opportunity for students to engage with peers who are not in their classes at school, allowing for new connections, friendships, and perspectives to be formed in a safe and nurturing environment where every voice matters and every child is celebrated for his or her unique creative contributions.
