After School Art
7/28 UPDATE: Fill-the-Gap this Fall
We will be updating all After School Art programming to meet the needs of local families by offering Art options before and after virtual learning to Fill-the-Gap while engaging kiddos in hands-on and in-person creativity with their community! Programming will be on a regular basis and operate under detailed safety protocol outlined HERE. Join the list below to be notified when registration opens.
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 sixteen+ years of experience running comprehensive arts programming, our team of happy, organized and caring educators make every afternoon engaging and creative!
Exciting After School classes explore drawing, painting, fibers, construction, printing, pottery, and more! Outstanding art educators support your child through just the right balance of creativity and play including art in the park, snack and studio classes. Dynamic skill-building programs inspire through age-appropriate challenges that develop creative thinking while alighting joy for the arts! A close-knit community develops while kids make friends getting outside-the-box!
Organized into three seasons, you preregister online for the day/s you need for the entire season 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 included for current ASA kiddos, 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 (by-the-day Sept. to June) or Summer Camps (by-the-week June to Sept.)! (Cherry Hill students can be dropped off on days when school dismisses early.)
How Does Registration Work?
Register for After School Art online by selecting the days you need. 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. We will send monthly First Friday emails to update you on programming, important dates and alert you to when payments are due. Call us for inquiries about alternative payment schedules. Late sign ups can not be prorated and day switches within seasons cannot be accommodated.
