The ARCC Discovery Program offers three levels of age appropriate, fun activities in visual, performing, literary and cultural arts that relate to the weekly theme. Youth may sign up for one or all six sessions. Youth will meet with group leaders Monday through Thursday for each one-week session in either the morning or the afternoon. Morning classes meet 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.(noon); the afternoon classes meet 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.

Wee and Pre Discovery classes include stories, games, art projects, role-playing, music and dance in a small group setting that follow the weekly themes, emphasizing beginning social and academic skills. Discovery classes for grades 1-6 focus on arts based activities to teach the weekly theme.
