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.

The Artist Scholars Program @ Manor College is a new partnership between the Abington Art Center and our neighbor Manor College.  Students who successfully complete designated courses and workshops at Abington Art Center will be eligible to receive up to twelve (12) transferable college credits and are eligible for additional scholarships and substantial tuition discounts through the college.

This partnership increases the amount of studio arts classes the college can offer its students while allowing students at AAC to receive college credit if they desire. AAC is very excited that its faculty and studio school classes have been recognized for their quality and value. Participants must sign up for the program in advance.
