MRAC offers three exciting programs for individuals to develop their creative capabilities.

Exhibitions at MRAC include monthly gallery shows. In March, we open with the annual member's show and in July is the prestigious juried show. In between, we host featured artists like plein air artists, Harald Grote and Mateus Costa. 


Humanities at MRAC include monthly poetry readings following the gallery openings as well as many other events and workshops. Peter Krok, the editor of the Schuylkill Valley Journal, leads the humanities department.

Classes at MRAC span from fundamental drawing, sketching, and painting to clay and fibers and everything in between. Each season we announce our summer, fall, winter & spring curriculum , in addition to Yoga and Craft Workshops featuring several Philly artists. Learn more then register today!
