Arts Alive, an intensive arts institute for students in grades 3-12, is an award-winning program, recognized with the “Best Practices” Award and the “Regional Summer School of Excellence” Award, by the Pennsylvania Department of Education.
Arts Alive places students and professional artists side by side for four intense weeks in both the visual and performing arts. Our faculty of artists teach and mentor with the skills they have mastered. This summer experience helps prepare students, as artists, to take on challenges in high school, college, and the real world.
Proudly celebrating our 21st year, we are confident this will be our best summer yet. Come experience the arts, learn something new, and take your interest in the arts to the next level. Bring your summer to life at Arts Alive!
