About Woodmere’s Studio Program:
Woodmere Art Museum offers a variety of art classes for all ages and skill levels. Our studio programs provide fun and engaging art experiences that encourage people of all abilities to celebrate traditional and contemporary ideas of art-making. Classes and workshops are offered year-round in areas such as painting, drawing, collage, poetry and literature, art and music, and photography. Classes for children and teens provide fun and unique art-making, and include printmaking, painting, batik on fabric, animation, sculpture, and bookmaking. With painters and artists in mind, the George D. Widener Studio is a professional setting with ample north light, easy access, and plenty of free parking. All classes are taught by talented groups of professional artists that live and work in the Philadelphia area.
The museum reserves the right to cancel classes due to insufficient enrollment. In the event of a cancellation, students will be notified and full tuition will be refunded.
Woodmere requires one week’s advanced notice of withdrawal from class or a $30 cancellation fee will be incurred. No refunds after the first class.
Scholarships for students grades K-12 are available based on financial need. Contact the Education Department at 215-247-0948 to apply.

Woodmere is looking for a passionate student who is interested in creating rich, visitor-focused experiences that welcome diverse audiences into museum spaces. The intern will be involved in developing a school program and family guide in conjunction with our upcoming fall exhibition, A Million Faces: The Photography of John W. Mosley. Research will be needed on the work of John W. Mosley, his life, the historical and social context for his work, and for educational teaching methods in an art museum.
This project will involve training for the development of educational programs and tours using the Museum’s current summer exhibitions and historic galleries. The intern will be guided in researching best practices and strategies, developing knowledge of summer exhibitions, the Museum’s history, building and the collection on exhibit in the Founder’s historic galleries.
The intern will also assist in the administration and implementation of the summer studio art program for children and teens, spending time in the studio assisting the art instructor with the Summer Community Art Project. This will be helpful in understanding how art making activities are designed to enrich student museum experiences.
The student will learn:
how education plays a role in the exhibition process and in providing meaningful experiences for visitors of all ages.
- about the works and time periods of artists John W. Mosley and summer exhibitions.
- the history of Woodmere Art Museum, the building and historic galleries.
- Discipline-Based Arts Education developed by the Getty Education Institute for the Arts, which has been adapted and implemented in Woodmere’s tours and programs for school children.
- Visual Thinking Strategies: participatory group engagement and open-ended questioning; strategies for listening and responding to individual ideas; and facilitating the collaboration of multiple ideas and perspectives to inspire group discussion and interpretation.
- administrative, verbal and writing skills.
- strategies for engaging students in visual and art-making experiences
