Art4Life is excited to be part of Maplewood Elementary and invite you  to join us! With an enrollment of 275 students, Maplewood is defined by a strong sense of community among teachers, parents, and students. Art4Life adds to the children’s learning experiences by providing quality before-and-after school arts education with experienced teachers.

Nestled in beautiful southwest Portland, Art4Life provides ample opportunities for our students to explore the area around them while engaging in a variety of hands-on activities. Having access to April Hill Park, Gabriel Park/SWCC, our own garden, the school’s computer lab and kitchen, Art4Life provides a well-rounded arts education.

Considered the main attraction to our children, Etiquette Friday’s give the kids a chance to immerse themselves in cultures from around the world. Every month is dedicated to a different country. Making use of the school’s kitchen, the teachers research and prepare local cuisine. Children have the opportunity to try new things, learn about the world around them and have fun!

Field strips are an opportunity for kids to connect with various cultures and communities in Portland. A few examples include visiting the Symphony, Art Museum, art galleries in the Pearl District and Chinese Gardens.
