Programs and Services
The Inner-City Neighborhood Art House offers a free after-school program for Erie's inner-city youth. The program provides a wide variety of arts education and environmental classes for students ages 7-18. There are different after-school program options during the fall and winter-spring. We also offer a free day program during the summer from late June to mid-July. The summer program offers five weeks of programming where each week is independent of the others; participants can sign up for a single week or any combination of weeks.
During COVID, virtual classes have been available for the students to be able to attend through the comforts of their own homes. All instructions and necessary materials are provided to each student at no cost.
