Policies and Information

Please refer to the art materials list specific to each class. Registration for a class is for one participant. If you have more than one person participating from your household please register them each individually.


Our mission is to foster our students' artistic development, whatever their level. Wayne Art Center's faculty members accomplish this by presenting lessons that form the building blocks of a strong foundation in the arts. Students are encouraged to continually challenge themselves and move forward in their artistic experience. Small class sizes ensure that students receive individual attention from their instructors and have the chance to interact with their fellow classmates. The Wayne Art Center's faculty members are working artists who have graduated from the nation's most respected art schools. Many have won awards for their work and are represented in public and private art collections around the country. Our cooking classes and workshops are taught by professional chefs who have worked in some of the most prestigious restaurants in the area and around the world. Learn more about our Faculty. In addition to our core classes, we offer special workshops by regionally and nationally known professional artists, as well as lectures by art historians, artists and jurors.
