Artology Art Opening

Posted by on July 28, 2008

We are thrilled to announce that our summer Artology program, now in its second year, is bigger and better than ever, with 24 Philadelphia children ages 9-14 enrolled in an expanded three-week session packed with activities and field trips integrating art and science, including visits to Fairmount Park’s Japanese House and Garden, the Wissahickon Environmental Center, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Artology has been an incredible success this year, thanks to a talented, multidisciplinary team of teaching artists, scientists, and volunteers. Our young participants have demonstrated curiosity, creativity, commitment, and consistent good behavior throughout our rigorous fifteen-day program. We are very proud of their accomplishments!
