Arts on a Roll

Get Creative with Arts on a Roll! 

Express yourself with our fun and exciting mobile arts service. We offer unique workshops in theatre, dance, music, and visual art for the young and the young-at-heart. Perfect for school programs, festivals, Girl & Boy Scouts meetings, office team building events, block parties, girls' and guys' nights-in, community days, or any event you want to add art at our parks! 

Arts on a Roll has been rolling out to the community since 2015. We started by providing a few small group visual arts workshops out of a mini-van a couple of times a year. Now we offer up to 80 workshops and events annually and continue to grow. 

Due to the pandemic, we are unable to offer in-person programming at this time. We are providing limited virtual programming we can bring to you online! Reach out to find out more about by emailing Arts.onaroll@pgparks.com or complete our Event Inquiry Form.

Out of the Box with Arts on a Roll 

Saturday Morning Virtual Classes all Summer Long. Think creatively and get “Out of the Box” with Arts on a Roll! Arts on a Roll has historically been a mobile arts service in the community that comes to you. Well, we might not be able to be in-person right now, but that is not stopping us from bringing art to the young and the young-at-heart. Arts on a Roll presents an innovative new virtual at-home program for children! These classes are inspired by thinking out of the box, learning new skills, and a healthy amount of play and fun! Classes will be offered on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month. Classes are $20/student. Some classes may require kit pickup at one of our art centers.
