Cultural Exploration Program


About Us

Taller’s free after-school Art Education programs provide K–12 students with a nurturing environment that allows them to explore Puerto Rican and Latinx cultural traditions while strengthening academic and artistic skills. 

CEP is a free after-school program which provides elementary and middle school students with experiential learning that fuels critical inquiry across the arts including dance, theater, music, photography, fashion design, and the sciences through our STEAM courses.

The after-school program runs for three semesters and activities are scheduled daily from Monday to Friday, running from 3:00pm to 6:00pm. These sessions encompass art classes, a daily snack, homework assistance, and enriching field trips to museums, galleries, studios, and local colleges, all thoughtfully planned throughout the school year. 

Our Vision

Taller’s commitment to using art as a means of addressing the challenges in our community is not just about creating beautiful works of art; it’s about empowering the next generation with the tools they need to thrive in the face of adversity. The power of art lies in its ability to heal. In the face of community violence, children and youth often carry emotional scars. Engaging in artistic activities allows them to express their emotions in a safe and constructive manner. Creating art also improves fine motor skills, critical thinking, creativity, self-expression and visual analysis. Through art, we build a brighter future for the children and youth we serve, equipping them with the skills and confidence to overcome life’s obstacles.

My kid started in the after-school program this week, and she is in love with Taller... The staff and the youth volunteers are amazing with her. It is the highlight of her day that she gets to go to after school, with the bomba, with the pets, and the art she gets to do. I just wanted to let you know that I am so appreciative of Taller, the staff, and the programming.
