Community Outreach Programs

Outreach programs at Wayne Art Center allow us to form partnerships with schools, groups, and special needs populations in order to provide arts enrichment activities, field-trip opportunities, and expand the awareness of and appreciation for the visual arts in our community.

The Wayne Art Center currently provides:

  1. Merit Badge programs for both the Boy & Girl Scouts of America
  2. PLUS Art classes for seniors who demonstrate need
  3. Both traveling & in-house programs for children with special needs. We have been proud to partner with:
    • The Timothy School (A school for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders)
    • The Melmark School (A school for adolescents with a range of learning disabilities)
    • St. Lucy's Day School (A school for children with visual impairment)
    • The Woodlynde School (A school for children with minor learning disabilities)
  4. Special programs and art classes for home school students.
  5. 'Broaden Your World' Painting & Ceramic classes for adults with traumatic brain injury and other special needs.
  6. Field trip programs for local pre-schools & private schools. We host programs at our facility, or travel to locations within 15 miles of the Wayne Art Center.
  7. Family Fun days. Join us for special arts enrichment programs geared towards families, scheduled on Saturdays throughout the year.
  8. Arts and entertainment activities are offered each year as a part of our Summer Art Camp program. These ½ hour to 45 minute performances and/or activities are hosted on-site, and are offered free and open to the public.
  9. Special docented exhibit tours are offered to schools, retirement communities, and other non-profit organizations to provide for education on the specific art & artists within an exhibition.
