Philly Family: Philly Art Center Expanding With New Cherry Hill Space
The following article was originally posted here at PhillyFamily.com.
They’ve got the city core covered with hands-on, creativity-packed classes in Fairmount and Queen Village, but the folks behind Philly Art Center have been inspired, and they have a new masterpiece in the works: a new center to open in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, this Spring.
The new space was inspired by the current outposts we know and love, so expect huge stainless steel art sinks, work space for miles, and open architecture so that you can see and hear your kids as they create. The space will also have large windows overlooking lovely open fields — a feature the staff plan to take full advantage of (art en plein air, anyone?). Oh, and free parking. We city folk love the sound of that.
Come April, the new space will welcome toddlers, kids, teens, and adults into the new space with a line-up of arts programming. New offerings at Cherry Hill will include an afternoon session of the popular Mini Masters class, as well as tween specialty camps that include sewing, painting + drawing, comics, crafts, and ceramics.
Can’t wait until April? To get the NJ ‘burbs all excited, Philly Art Center is offering a five-week mini session of some of their most popular offerings at the Katz JCC in Cherry Hill starting March 15. You can see the class list here, and register by searching for the class you want. Summer camp registration for the Cherry Hill branch is also now open; spring classes will follow shortly.
