After School Arts at Penn bridges young and aspiring creatives, performers, and artists to peers and mentors on campus.
What is After School Arts at Penn (ASAP)?
The weekly After School Arts at Penn program, run by students and staff of Platt House at the University of Pennsylvania, is an introduction to the performing arts for students ages 10-14. Participants get to choose two areas of study – dance, acting, voice, and musical instruments – and receive mentorship and lessons from undergraduate student artists. A typical Wednesday afternoon includes icebreakers, art projects, and snacks. At least once per semester, the program will also feature a special presentation from a University performance club!
