Discovery Club

We have started a new program of afternoon clubs at the Cultural Arts Center. Today we had our first meeting of the Science Club. We made oobleck, a fluid that behaves like a solid when force is applied to it.

Holiday Open House at PDDC

This week the Cultural Arts Center's artist-in-residence Dwayne Boone presented one of his paintings to Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Chris Gocong and his wife Mandy at our Holiday Open House. Then Dwayne received a surprise gift from the Gocongs: a personalized Eagles jersey. We created the winter wonderland decorations that helped to make this event so special.
