When: Monday - Friday: 5 day, 3 day, and 2 day a week options available.

Time: 3:30 - 6 p.m.

Lesson: group and individualized instruction

Geared for the wildly creative! St. Stephens Church and School have partnered to bring you a unique and progressive after school program. Through this joint venture program, students will learn problem solving, abstract thinking and creative expression. Students will be engaged with computer and programming, 3D printing, wood working, sewing and laser cutting techniques.

This program is specifically designed for those students interested in pursuing their own interest and ideas in STEAM as well as collaborating with others. Students will have the opportunity to experience intelligent failure as they work through their own creative process gently guided by a staff member.

Registration: A registration fee of $50 is due annually each year in August for the lab. This one time registration covers the whole year. Each student will receive a da Vinci lab t-shirt as part of registration.


If the student is enrolled in other St. Stephen’s after school activities, they will be picked up, signed out and returned after their tutoring or fine art activity. All students must be picked up on time. After 6 PM the fee is $1 per minute.

The da Vinci Lab for Creative Arts and Sciences follows the HISD school calendar.  For a complete calendar of half days and holidays please visit our school calendar for most accurate information.
