Get Artsy-Crafty at Queen Village Art Center

Fairmount Art Center's Second Location

queen village art center opens!

When we heard the Fairmount Art Center was opening a roomier sister spot in foot traffic-friendly South Philly, we trotted right over.

(As lovely as the tree-lined streets are in the original Art Museum District location, getting there is a bit of a schlep.)

There we found highly functional amenities — huge trough sinks that prevent bottlenecks during brush rinsing and a kitchenette where you can fix a snack or get hopped up on caffeine (BYO) before tending to your canvas — that got us jazzed about a six-week series or one-day workshop. Courses cover subjects like figure drawing, jewelry-making, and bookbinding. Budding seamstresses can learn to do alterations or knock off their favorite dresses.

Skip a trip to the supply store, since materials are provided for many of the classes.

That should put some pep in your step.

Queen Village Art Center, 514 Bainbridge Street (215-765-2787 or phillyartcenter.com). Sign up online at public.phillyartcenter.com, $48-$165. Classes begin September 19.
