Our fun doesn't stop after the summer. Check out our yearlong events and programs!






As part of a collaborative program between different areas of Parks & Recreation.  REACH teaching artists attend After-School Programs in 80 Recreation Centers to teach arts and crafts lessons.


We attend these REACH sites in seasonal 8-12 week sessions throughout the school year, at least once a week.


For more information, go to the Philadelphia Parks & Recreation website (link above)

Monthly Contests

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, contact your local recreation center to participate.
