WildArts Enrichment Programs are offered on select days of the week during the school year. They are a great way to learn in a small group setting as classes are capped at 10-12 students.

These enrichment classes are open to the entire PS 163 community, including those students not enrolled in our afterschool program. Signing up for an enrichment program allows your student access to the WildArts Afterschool program for the entire WildArts day.
