Taking the train into Center City was intimidating, but it gives you a sense of independence, and knowing you can do it yourself is freeing.

Richard Mitchell Senior at Pennsylvania Leadership Charter School Saturday School Classes: Animation, Drawing, Graphic Design, Illustration: Story Book, Painting, Improvisation

Richard Mitchell has been experimenting with different Saturday School courses since he was a freshman in 2008. “Saturday School is for anyone who wants to take the time and learn, even if you’re not good and don’t consider yourself an ‘artist,’” he said. “Even though a lot of people are serious, it’s a searching experience.”

Richard attended a public school for his first two years of high school and said it was difficult because he didn’t fit into one particular group. “The area where I live is not very diverse. You don’t break out of what you’re supposed to do,” he said. “Here, there were lots of kids like me. Being around people who are unique and don’t judge, who don’t fit into stereotypes, it’s helped me figure out who I am.”

Here, when you first walk in the studios you get a very professional feel.

Julianna Bautista Senior at Philadelphia High School for the Creative and Performing Arts Saturday School Class: Improvisation

Although Julianna Bautista attends a performing arts high school, they rarely do any training in improv. “And if we do, it’s just games,” she said. “This class opened my eyes that improv is its own whole area of acting.”

While she’s still exploring all the aspects of theater and thinks she may want to study directing in college, Julianna said acting has affected her emotional life on a daily basis. “You’re trying to train yourself to feel all these things so that you can have them tucked away and use them later.” Julianna said the 10 weeks of Saturday School go by so fast because you get so deep into the topic of your class. “Even when it was over, I still wanted more.”

I don’t know what my life would be like without the arts. It’s not imaginable.

Julia Wright Senior at Hatboro–Horsham High School Saturday School Classes: Wearable Art, Dynamic Fibers

Julia Wright’s high school has a dedicated teacher who has worked hard to make their arts program better. Still, the school doesn’t offer any courses in the specialized area of fibers. “You need sinks, looms and sewing machines, and we just don’t have room for all that.”

Growing up with an artistic family, Julia enjoys the opportunity to learn new things and experiment with new techniques. “Right now I’m trying to get a foot in everything – even if it’s just a taste, so I’ll have more of an idea of what I want to do,” she said. “All I know is if I’m not going to be in the arts, I’m not going to be happy.”
