Art First, Inc.

Art Education for Children and Families

Through summer day camps, workshops, and special events, Art First encourages children and families to develop a love for learning by using artistic media and techniques. Art First, Inc. is committed to providing high quality materials and instruction. The staff has a broad spectrum of experience and talent and with their fresh perspectives as dedicated artists and educators will open new worlds for your children.

Children are encouraged to be independent and to develop skills that foster a positive self-image. Hands-on activities with age appropriate goals are available in open classroom settings. Each child is unique and is allowed to work in his or her own way to develop his or her potential. Our philosophy is to foster a love of learning and provide a fun and creative investigation of art in a caring atmosphere.

In our Summer Art Camp for ages 5-14, we hold week-long classes consisting of one morning session and one afternoon session.  Classes for older children may be scheduled as full-day to allow more in depth exploration.  Our four classrooms are brimming with art supplies, activity and fun!  Small class sizes enable increased interaction with teachers, interns and peers and provide many opportunities to be creative.

Art First is located in Stone Mill Plaza off Yorklyn Road in Hockessin DE.   Our students come from all locations in New Castle County Delaware, Chester County Pennsylvania, and even Maryland. Delaware students come from Wilmington, Newark, Bear, Greenville, Montchanin, Claymont, and Hockessin. Pennsylvania parents find our location is convenient to Landenberg, Avondale, Kennett Square, Chadds Ford, Lincoln University, West Grove, and Unionville. Wherever you live, you will find the environment fun and welcoming.

Art First, Inc. has been in operation since 2004 and welcomes children and staff regardless of race, religion, sex, national origin, or disabilities.
