Approach & Philosophy

About Philly Art Center

Our goal is to develop dynamic, creative thinkers while fostering joy for arts and self-expression. Our philosophy is simple: we believe in process over product and that what occurs during the act of art-making is paramount.

  • So my kid is LOVING art camp.
    This is so unlike her, usually it is pulling teeth to get her to attend these kinds of things. I would like to sign her up for this summer as well.
