Art Squared at Franklin Square

Music and Drama Camps

Advanced registration was required to participate. Registration for the camps ended on Monday, August 21. Thank you to everyone for registering.

Art Squared music and drama culture camps make their debut at Franklin Square in September and October 2017. Two separate four-week series will match teaching artists with the imagination of students in grades 1-6 to participate in the creative process of musical and dramatic performances. Art Squared is a free program generously funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and produced by Historic Philadelphia, Inc.

Camp Details

Each four-week series will enroll 20 students each in three classes: Grades 1-2, Grades 3-4, Grades 5-6; a total of 60 students will be enrolled in each Art Squared camp. Historic Philadelphia, Inc. will provide experienced teaching artists (two instructors per each group of 20 students), a snack break, and Art Squared t-shirts for all participants.

Art Squared camps will take place outdoors at Franklin Square, located at 6th and Race Streets in Philadelphia. Restrooms are located on-site. Art Squared camps will run rain or shine. Students are recommended to attend all four workshops in the series. Parents are not required but are welcome to participate in the camps.
