Learn & Create

It is not too early to prepare for SUMMER RECESS!

With many classes starting the first week of June, start planning a fun-filled summer now. Woodmere offers a wide variety of classes and workshops for Children and Teens, from Pre-K Art Workshops, including Creating A Bird Costume and Creating A Life-Size Self-Portrait, to Garden Artist Book & Papermaking. Or try out Myths & Monsters, creating fantastic creatures, masks, shields, and vessels after learning about myths, fables, and trickster tales from various cultures around the world.


And don’t miss out on the engaging Summer Community Art Project, where art becomes the common thread for building community. Every summer, children and teens from different neighborhoods in the Philadelphia region meet at Woodmere to create a collaborative work of art. Working alongside professional artists, students design and construct an outdoor art installation that is incorporated into the Children’s Butterfly Garden.
