Albright College has a fun afterschool art program for kids. On Mondays from 4-5pm, kids can have a hands-on art and gallery experience!
They take tours of the changing exhibitions in the Freedman Gallery, and have opportunities to work with unusual art materials in long and short-term projects.
Some examples for upcoming projects will be learning how to make felt from fleece and hand rolled beeswax candles. When it warms up they'll visit the campus gardens and outdoor sculptures as well. Sessions are led by Albright’s art and art education students with periodic visits by local artists.
Throughout the year they take field trips to other local galleries and museums. Special programs this year include a Children’s Film Festival with screenings during the winter season.

Runs Monday, February 2, 2015 through May 11, 2015. The location is the corner of 13th and Bern Street in Reading adjacent to the main campus parking lot. They meet at the freedman Gallery but then sometimes move upstairs to the Center for the Arts Mezzanine to work.
$5 pay-as-you-go per session.

Advance registration is not required, but is helpful so that Beth can get to know the parents, and have an idea of how many kids will attend.
