7 Photos that Show off our Summer Camp

7. The detail and prep that goes into each and every project…

Our amazing and dedicated curriculum team, are seen here working on developing exciting projects and studio explorations! These aren’t cookie-cutter arts-and-crafts and every project will be as unique as the child who created it!

6. Our dedicated teachers, staff, and volunteers…

Philly Art Center teachers are experienced educators who inspire creativity as well as support social and emotional growth!

5. We listen and learn from our kiddos as much as they do from us…

The results of a collected survey asking artists what they’d like to do more of at art camp. Building structures, working with our hands, field trips and (of course) glitter. We’re experts on kids and know that they are people with thoughts, ideas, and feelings too, so we still listen to what they have to say!

4. Curriculum that is age-appropriate and always engaging…

We take age-appropriate learning seriously! Kids are grouped by age and curriculum is developed to meet the needs of these varying ages groups. While a 10 year old and a 5 year old might both focus on building observational skills in portrait drawing, the approach and skills taught are different. This is essential to developing confident, creative thinkers.

3. Inspiration comes from everywhere…

Every summer, our art camps feature tons of exiting projects that pull inspiration from art history, diverse cultures, mathematics and engineering, music and performing arts, the great outdoors, our immediate environments, communities, and so much more.

2. Playtime, visiting artists, and field trips balance our days…

We know kids and we know that in addition to their time in the studio, they need to get out and move and groove! Daily outdoor playtime is a cornerstone of our camp schedule as well as a weekly special event, trip or visiting artist. City campers get to explore community connections that enhance the weekly camp theme.

1. Kids just wanna have FUN… and we make sure they do!

Ask any summer camper what the most important Philly Art Center rule is and they’ll likely shout in unison: “HAVE FUN!” Boys and girls ages 4-14 will not soon forget their experiences at Philly Art Center.
