Join us to celebrate children and the arts! We’ll have plenty of projects for kids to do including making Dragon Puppets, Worry Dolls, Tile Painting, T-Shirt Drawing, mosaic hearts and more — plus our first KidFest project in our new Makerspace. Plus we’ll be featuring the Silliest, Funniest and most Rockin’est band this side of the Equator!

Multi–award winning Baze and His Silly Friends are a super creative, super fun, and super talented children/family rock band. These cats hit the stage at 1000 mph and take children and adults on the ride of lives with their energetic rockin’ tunes! No show is complete without tons of bubbles, laughs, hip shakin’, and toe tappin’ good time songs that will make even Grandma get out of her rocking chair and boogie up those stairs. Part of our KidFest!

Concert is free; art projects are either pay-as-you-go or $10 for access to all activities.

Sponsored by PECO.

We are excited to announce that we have been working on a brand new website for our Art Center that will launch later next week, just in time for July! Our website may be down for a few hours Wednesday evening (June 29) as we switch everything over.

Our online registrations will be closed during this brief time as we set up our new system for you- please call us at 215-887-4882 if you have any questions or would like to register for a summer class or camp during this time.

Thank you so much for your patience, and we can’t wait to show you what new things we have in store!
