Darlington is dedicated to providing artistic opportunities for all community members: Classes are available for all agesfrom preschool through adult – and explore a wide variety of styles. Beginners are welcome in all disciplines, according to a Darlington press release.

The center provides private lessons, on-going weekly classes, one-day workshops, and special programs including an Arts-Integrated Preschool (now offered one, two, three or four days each week) and an Afternoon Kindergarten Enrichment program on Tuesdays.

New for this fall, Darlington is offering the 4 Arts Adventure Club on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Students will explore all four arts – music, visual art, dance, and drama – in this enriching after-school class. Students, who are encouraged to bring a snack and homework, are met at the bus stop and supervised until their class or lesson begins.

Coming up later in the fall, Darlington Arts Center invites the community to a free Back to School Arts Party on Saturday, Oct. 3 from 6 to 8 p.m. The party celebrates music, art, dance, and drama and will include performances and exhibits from Darlington’s professional teaching artists.

“It’s a great way to showcase the amazing talents of our teachers while providing a fun environment for people of all ages to experience the arts” Darlington’s Executive Director Susan N. Quinn in the press release.

Class information and registration is available online at www.darlingtonarts.org, by emailing register@darlingtonarts.org or by calling (610) 358-3632. A 4 percent early-registration discount on group classes is offered through Aug. 18.

Darlington Arts Center, a nonprofit community arts center, serves over 5,000 residents annually. It is located at 977 Shavertown Road, Garnet Valley, less than a mile east of Route 202, just south of Route 1.
