June 12 - August 18

Registration opens Mid-March

Wayne Art Center’s Summer Art Camp 2023, now in its 39th year, offers 10 one-week sessions with morning, afternoon and late afternoon classes scheduled weekdays throughout the summer.

Join us on a fun and creative adventure with The Art of Nature this summer as we discover a variety of animals and wonderous environments throughout the world.

During each weekly destination, campers ages 5-17 will learn about famous artists who made a mark and learn about their styles and techniques through more than 200 diverse classes in drawing, painting, cartooning, ceramics, sculpture, photography, cooking, jewelry, and more. Enroll your children now and watch their creativity come alive!

SAC 2023 SCHEDULE: Wayne Art Center’s Summer Art Camp offers families a wide array of flexibility with morning, afternoon and late afternoon classes. Parents can easily create a FULL-DAY camp week, by adding LUNCH BUNCH between morning and afternoon classes for their campers.
