Allens Lane Art Center supports the community through a variety of free programs and events.

Call For Artists

We want to highlight all the amazing local artists and makers at the Festival. To participate in the Mt. Airy Arts Festival Art Market, artists must reside in the 19144, 19119, and 19118 zip codes. The market will take place on the grounds of Allens Lane Park, and artists will need to provide their own tables and tents. (Tents are optional and not required)

Mt. Airy Arts Festival

Allens Lane Art Center is celebrating 70 Years of bringing Mt. Airy together through the arts!  In partnership with West Mt Airy Neighbors, we will honor this important milestone by hosting our first Mt Airy Arts Festival!  This free public event on September 9th will bring together local artists, makers, craftspeople, performers, and young artists throughout the Northwest.  The festival will take place at Allens Lane Park and will highlight and celebrate the vibrant arts and culture scene in Northwest Philadelphia. 

Satellite Gallery

In partnership with Settlement Music School, Allens Lane Art Center presents works by local artists in the Lieberman Gallery at the Settlement Music School Germantown location at 6128 Germantown Ave, Philadelphia PA, 19119. Exhibitions take place for the duration of three months. 

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.
