Boys & Girls Clubs are much more than just places to play. Each of the Clubs offer programs that enable youth to develop their creativity and cultural awareness through knowledge and appreciation of the visual arts, crafts, performing arts and creative writing.

Pegasus Artworks is the after school arts program of Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware, providing services and opportunities for Club youth, ages 5 to 18, to work with professional artists and art educators. The youth served in this program gain exposure to art subjects, materials, and techniques that most do not have access to at school, home, or in other community settings.
Pegasus ArtWorks is built on presenting opportunities for our youth to work with qualified professional teaching artists with innovative curriculum that combines technical skill, conceptual thinking, and integrative learning with areas of literacy, math, science, and cultural understanding.
