Enrichment

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. If your family is enrolled in one of our afterschool programs, signing up for an enrichment program allows your student access to the WildArts Afterschool program for the entire WildArts day. If you are not enrolled in any WildArts Afterschool program, your child may only attend WildArts during the Enrichment program block.

Current Classes

WildArts enrichment classes are subject to minimum enrollment requirements. If the minimum enrollment is not met by the Sunday prior to the first session, the enrichment program will not move forward and families who registered will be refunded.
