Free Summer Day Program for Inner-City Children in Erie

The Inner-City Neighborhood Art House offers a free day program during the summer from late June to mid-July. Applications open in late March. Class size is limited; classes are filled on a first come, first served basis.

The summer program offers five weeks of summer programming for children/youth 7-14 years of age (morning session), and 10-18 years of age (afternoon session). Each week is independent of the others; therefore, participants can sign up for a single week or any combination of weeks.
