Philly Art Center’s After School Art program is acclaimed by kids and parents for being the best around! With thirteen+ years of experience running stellar arts programming, our team of happy, organized, creative and caring educators make every afternoon, engaging and creative!
Dynamic, skill-building and age-appropriate studio classes explore drawing, painting, construction, printing, fibers, pottery and more! A close creative community develops and kids enjoy making friends while getting “outside the box”!
Organized into three seasons, you preregister, online, for the day/s your child will attend for the entire season. We’ll pick up your child from school on those days, then hit the playground to run, scream and jump! Snack and studio time engage and inspire from 4:00-5:30pm, followed by homework time and pick-up by 6pm. (New Jersey friends can learn more about the Cherry Hill schedule, here.)
What Happens on ½ Days and No School Days?
Fairmount + Queen Village: Preregister for early dismissal pick-up any day that public schools release early, even if it not your regular after school day! This service is a perk for After School families only. On days when schools are closed, you can register for Vacation Camp.
Cherry Hill: You can preregister for ½ day camp from 1-3pm, or you can opt to drop your child off at their regular 3pm time. Transportation is not included on these days. On days when schools are closed, you can register for Vacation Camp.
How Does Registration and Payment Work?
Register for After School Art online and select the days of the week your artist will attend. You can sign up one season at a time or sign up for the entire year. Space fills quickly, so it’s best to register early. A 50% seasonal deposit is made at registration and the remaining half of your balance is due in two payments at weeks 4 and 8 (roughly, monthly once the season has begun) and should be made through your online account. We are happy to accommodate varied payment schedules, call us to set this up! Late sign ups can not be prorated and day switches within seasons cannot be accommodated.
