QCA experiences

The Quick Center offers a number of programs aimed at expanding arts education opportunities for young people, as well as a professional development program for art teachers.


Artistic Explorers Program

The Artistic Explorers program is designed to spark the imagination of some of our youngest community members, those ages 3-6. The program typically includes a story, a snack, and art activities that introduce youngsters to art makers, their tools and techniques.

CANCELLATION NOTICE: Due to unforeseen circumstances, Artistic Explorers programs scheduled for Jan. 27, Feb. 10, March 16, April 18 and May 18 of 2024 have been cancelled. 

ArtMobile visits to local libraries

Each summer, the Quick Center ArtMobile is loaded with works from the Quick Center's collection, educational resources and art supplies, and heads off to public libraries in communities in New York and Pennsylvania, presenting a lesson and activities aligned with a program theme.

Check back in the spring of 2024 to learn of the ArtMobile theme for the summer of 2024 and the schedule of visits.

QCA summer experiences

We offer a number of programs for youngsters aimed at exposing them to world cultures, cultivating their interest in art, and, for older children and young teens, expanding their budding interests and talents by helping them explore various are-making processes.
