Our dedicated faculty of professional teachers and artists encourage our youngest students to build the basis for a creative life, working on confidence and problem-solving skills as they develop their artistic side. This summer we are introducing new S.T.E.A.M. classes throughout camp!

Courses are designed for students of all ages and levels, from toddlers to teens. Many of our exciting classes feature elements of S.T.E.A.M. (science, technology, engineering, art and math), incorporating innovative materials and resourceful approaches into each project.

Semester-long classes for children of all ages are offered in the fine arts, S.T.E.A.M classes including culinary arts, film, robotics, Minecraft, and¬†ceramics, jewelry and drama. One-day workshops, school’s-out day camps, and special events are also offered throughout the year. Programs are available for young people from age 3¬†through 15.

Teens 16 and older are invited to enroll in certain adult level classes. We also welcome teens as year-round volunteers. Learn more about volunteering.

Summer Art Camp

Each summer more than 1300 children enroll in the Wayne Art Center’s popular Summer Art Camp Program. Choose from a full range of classes, including: drawing and painting, ceramics, general art, printmaking, jewelry, digital photography and more!

As the Wayne Art Center is a non-profit, member-sponsored organization, a current yearly membership is required to enroll in all classes. Our membership year runs from September 1st – August 31st. Memberships purchased after the fall session are pro-rated, and membership will be automatically applied when you enroll in your first class each year.

Private Art Lessons

Our talented faculty also offer private lessons for children ages 8 and up in drawing and painting, ceramics, and in acting and voice coaching. Lessons are scheduled according to teacher and student availability in blocks of four one-hour lessons at a time. Private lessons for one student start at $65 per hour. Semi-private lessons are $60 per student for two students, or $50 per student for three to four students. For groups of five or more students, we will organize a private group class!
