Q&A with Young Artists
We conducted a little Q&A with Summer Campers, whose ages range from 4-12, to find out what they love about coming to Philly Art Center. Just as we hypothesized, the list was endless and varied. From learning real skills and techniques to the teachers who make learning fun, there are so many reasons kiddos (and parents) love our Summer Camp.
Here’s what we got!
