Art in the Afternoon

Art in the Afternoon is a free after-school class for Palms Middle School students interested in a directed, hands-on art experience.

There are 10 weekly classes, on Wednesdays from 3:05-4:20pm, from March through May.

The program culminates with a wonderful Art Show in the library in May, attended by our resident artists, their families, friends, faculties and members of the community. Attendees are also treated to musical performances from members of our band and orchestras!

Applications for the 2023 Art in the Afternoon program will be available in the Spring, online and in these locations:

Magnet Office
Ms. Goldin, Room 162
Ms. Purdy, Room 165

The application must be signed by students and parents, and students must commit to attending all five sessions. Space is limited, and students will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Example: See a previous year's application.

The Art in the Afternoon program is generously sponsored by Friends of Palms.

End-of-Year Art Show

At the end of the semester, student artists in our Art in the Afternoon elective exhibit their artwork at a "juice and cheese" reception in the School Library. All Palms families are invited. There is live chamber music and a lucky numbers auction to raise money for the arts at Palms.

Please join the resident artists from our Art in the Afternoon program to view their work and enjoy classical music performed by band and orchestra students.
