As the Wayne Art Center is a non-profit, Membership sponsored organization, a current yearly membership is required to enroll in most classes. Our membership year runs from September 1st - August 31st of each year. Memberships purchased after the Fall session are pro-rated, and membership will be automatically applied when you enroll in your first class each season. If you would like to purchase a family membership, which covers every member of your immediate family for one year, please remember to purchase that membership separately before enrolling in a class. If you have any questions or dificulties, please feel free to call our front desk at 610-688-3553.
