ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Some South Georgia students are crafting their artistic skills at the Albany Museum of Art.
    

The museum hosts fourth through sixth graders at the Afterschool Art Academy every Tuesday afternoon.
 They work on a different project each week, expanding on their school art curriculum.

"We do paintings, we do water colors like she said,” said Stephen McDonald, Student.

'It's really important because I know the public school systems and schools in general have such a short amount of time through no fault of their own, it's just a fact,” said Chloe Hinton, Interim Director of Education and Program Planning. “So it's nice for some kids to be able to get to spend a little bit of extra time doing something they really enjoy."

The academy will run through May and will start back up in September.
