    • Monday, June 25, 2018
    • PAFA's Summer Art Camp is for budding young artists, ages 4 to 15. Located conveniently two blocks from City Hall on North Broad Street in the beautiful, Historic Landmark Building. This camp gives children the opportunity to explore the museum collection, learn from skilled instructors and create artwork in safe, accessible, and authentic art studios. Each camp is taught by an Instructor and a Studio Assistant. Topics include skill building camps like comic book drawing, painting, and animation, along with thematic sessions for younger campers such as magic academy, enchanted forest, and star wars. Campers eat lunch outside, on Lenfest Plaza and take field trips to nearby partner art and science museums, parks, and libraries. The program runs from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. with free 8:30 a.m. drop off and after camp available from 3pm - 5:30pm for an added cost. This summer PAFA is piloting 3 weeks of Pre-K Bilingual camp for Spanish and English speakers ages 4-6. Family and friends attend a special Art Show, put together by the campers, at the end of every weekly session along with free admission to the Museum. "I knew my daughter liked to draw, but I had no idea how engaged she could be until we enrolled her last summer at PAFA's camp,"-Sharon (Camp Parent, Fishtown). "For my nephew, going into high school, it wasn't just about the artmaking, but the visual literacy as well. He is more comfortable looking and talking about art after his experience at PAFA." - Hugh, Camp Guardian, South Philly) Visit for more information.
