  Off Site Education Classes- STARS
 

     In addition to arts classes offered at the Corvallis Arts Center, our organization participates in the STARS program. STARS stands for Super Time for Arts, Academics, Recreation, and Sports. The program is a collaboration of experienced childcare providers and offers enriched after-school care on site at eight different elementary schools: Adams, Garfield, Hoover, Jefferson, Lincoln, Mt. View, Wilson and in Philomath at Clemens.
     The Corvallis Arts Center's STARS collaboration centers on supplying trained artists to teach the arts component of STARS. The artists provide enrichment projects to all eight schools on a rotating basis. The projects are diverse and exciting and include the following: papermaking, storytelling, drama and music, lessons about art masters with related projects, collage, drawing, watercolors, printing, rubberstamping, performing a re-enactment of nursery rhymes and then a video viewing of their own acting, and projects that utilize recycled materials.
     Other STARS collaborators are: Boys and Girls Club of Corvallis, Corvallis-Benton County Public Library, Corvallis Parks and Recreation, LBCC, Corvallis School District 509J, Philomath Youth Activity Club, and United Way of Benton County.
