As part of a collaborative program between different areas of Parks & Recreation, we attend After-School Programs in 21 Recreation Centers to teach arts and crafts lessons.
We attend these REACH sites throughout the Spring and Fall, at least once a week.
You must be registered at the After-School program to participate in these activities.
For more information, go to the Philadelphia Parks & Recreation website (link above)
Each month we hold a different art contest open to kids of all ages. As long as the project is created in a recreation center, it can be submitted and may win an award.
Some contests have been Celebrate Your Heritage Through Art, Holiday Cards, Mummers Poster Design, Broad Street Run Artwork, Nutcracker Dolls, etc.
For more information, download a copy of our calendar and contact your local recreation center to participate.
