Program Info 2017-2018

Our Spring Session runs from April 3 – June 12.  Children will enjoy thematic & creative arts programming, with free local school pick-up, in a small group setting!  Themes and read-a-louds will be based on a wide variety of books from the local library, in an effort to promote and spread Lume’s love of reading!  Expect students to experience many different art forms such as; music, drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, fiber arts, and beyond as they read, create, and learn about art, science, world cultures, and more!

Once back at our studios, your child can expect a snack & homework break to settle into the afternoon.  This will be followed by the day’s fun and engaging art lesson.  When students are finished with their projects, they will enjoy an opportunity to participate in non-structured activities like group reading, playing, or working on their own ideas while waiting for pick up.  Our after school program provides just the right balance of structure and free-time for a young artist after a long day at school.

  • 3:00 – 3:30 – Students Arrive
  • 3:30 – 4:00 – Snack (parents must provide snack) & Homework help where applicable
  • 4:00 – 5:30 – The day’s art program
  • 5:30 – 6:00 – Parents Pick Up During Open Studio/ReadingTime

There will be no after school programming on days when the Philadelphia public schools have half days or days off.  We do have camps available for those circumstances!

Local School Pick-Up
School pick-up is included with your Afterschool Art registration.   Rain or shine, we pick-up from local schools by foot, so please be sure to dress and provide your children with the appropriate weather gear.  Lume teachers (all with the appropriate clearances and level of experience necessary for teaching and caring for children) will safely pick up your student after school and walk them back to the studios.

Registration will be open to K-4 students from schools within walking distance.

Write or call 215.551.LUME if you want to inquire about the program or ask about a school pickup.

Not interested in a full program with pickup?  We also have school-aged drop off programs from 4 – 5:30 daily.  Read more about them on this page.
