Mt. Airy Creative Alliance with WMAN

The Mt Airy Creative Alliance is an effort to build community and opportunity for individuals in our neighborhood who are engaged in creative pursuits and/or professions. Formerly known as the Mt Airy Arts Alliance in the ’90s, we are expanding opportunities for membership, and are thrilled to offer another means to highlight your creativity!

Stenton Family Manor

For almost a decade children and youth living at Stenton Family Manor have participated in our 8 week Summer Art Camp. Stenton Family Manor is a housing emergency shelter serving close to 200 families each year. The mission of Stenton is to Empower the Community through education, training, and financial literacy. The Manor provides housing, free meals, personal hygiene, afterschool homework help for children and youth, and a free health clinic. Stenton is located in East Mt. Airy.

In the summer of 2022, our teaching artist held an 8 week meditation and painting workshop on the grounds of Stenton Family Manor, providing twice a week hands-on arts experience during Stenton’s Summer Camp program. They created multiple collaborative art-works, including planting bulbs and flowers in the SFM’s outdoor garden in designs pre-discussed, planned, and drawn by the children, and they painted large-scale 5’x5′ pictorial journals of their gardening, meditative, and artistic experiences. The workshops focused on self-expression, healing, and supporting young artists’ creativity and imagination.
