PAEP Brings Free After School STEAM Programs

Sign up now for free STEAM classes for students in grades 5-8.

PAEP’s mission is to promote life-long learning in and through the arts for Pre-K to grade 12 students, seniors, and special populations throughout southeastern Pennsylvania.


The program provides students in grades 5-8 with the unique opportunity to strengthen academic competencies through visual and performing arts practices. Students participate in fun and engaging science, math, literacy, and social-emotional learning activities as well as experience learning through different art forms (visual arts, music, dance, and theater). PAEP will also send FREE art supplies to all participants.



PAEP’s free STEAM After-School Program will be held virtually for the Fall 2021 term. The program may offer some in-person programming when feasible but is subject to change due to the ongoing threat of Covid-19. The STEAM After-School Program will begin October 2021 and run Monday – Thursday for the entire school year.


Enroll in the 2021-22 Virtual Steam After-School Program.



PAEP supports the Philadelphia Family Community.

PAEP brings professional visual and performing artists into schools and community sites throughout southeastern Pennsylvania inclusive of Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties, to engage all learners in hands-on arts-making activities, provide professional development to the field, and perform action research reporting on the impact of the arts on student learning both quantitatively and qualitatively.
