Philly Art Center’s After School Art program, with free school pick-up, is acclaimed by kids and parents for being the best around! With fourteen+ 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 + more! A close creative community develops and kids make 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. Inspiring and engaging programming includes creative play, city sketchbook outings, snack (provided) and art class from 4:00-5:30pm with pick up by 6pm. (New Jersey friends can learn more about the Cherry Hill schedule, here.)

What Happens on Half Days + No School Days?
Half day camps, with free school pick up, are available on days when public schools dismiss early! Registration for all half day camp programs are open online for the entire school year, registration closes the Friday prior to the program date. Enroll in any days you wish! On days when schools are closed, you can register for Vacation Camps or Summer Camps (by-the-day or week starting in June)! (Cherry Hill students can be dropped off, days when school dismisses early.)
How Does Registration 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 for the entire school 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. Call us to inquire about other payment schedules. Late sign ups can not be prorated and day switches within seasons cannot be accommodated.
