Teen Artists are invited to explore our Adult/Teen options, including Adult & Teen Figure Drawing with Michael Doyle on Monday evenings, Adult & Teen Draw & Paint with Nathan Durnin, and Adult & Teen Pottery with Mathew Courtney on Saturday mornings.

NEW this season: the Wayne Art Center will begin offering a special program for Preschooler’s. Art Sprouts: Pre-School Arts Enrichment will give families a chance to supplement their child’s regular pre-school program, or begin their young preschooler’s education with a fine arts based program. Classes meet one or two days per week on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 9:30AM-11:30AM in Studios 4 and 5. Age appropriate art projects, gallery tours & themed ‘special guest’ dates (including drama, music, yoga & cooking) will introduce learning concepts from a fine arts standpoint, enhance creativity & exploration, all in a supportive & nurturing environment. Story & snack time during each session. Please dress your young Picasso in play clothes appropriate for art making! More information on Art Sprouts can be found on our website, www.wayneart.org.
