Teen Arts + Tech Afterschool Program

Session 4 Enrollment

5-Week Winter Session is Now Open!

All Grand Rapids Public high school and middle school students (grades 7th – 12th) are eligible to register for tuition-free WMCAT Where You’re At remote studio sessions. WMCAT will be offering 5-week-long remote studio classes where we encourage creative expression, connect you to teens with similar interests, and support you through your middle school and high school journey. 

Students from other high schools in the Grand Rapids area will be considered if seats and supplies are available! See studio options and the application below.


Session 4 will meet online as a group for 5 weeks on Tuesdays from 3:30 – 5:30pm (in Zoom): January 26, February 2, 9, 16, and 23. The rest of the week you will have free time to complete amazing art! All skill levels welcome. Choose your favorite media or try something new. 

Every student will get a supply kit of what they need to complete the class project, and we will talk to each of you about how to set up an easy, free personal workspace in your home. Details will be shared with your enrollment confirmation.


Students should complete an application to be a part of WMCAT Where You’re At. Grand Rapids Public School students will be prioritized, but if you are an interested student within Kent County, your application will be considered if seats are available. Enroll by January 22 for priority placement and supplies.
