  • 2009: Place to Indulge Your Inner Monet


From 2009: Established in 1930, the oldest art center on the Main Line is midway through a four-phase expansion. Classes in pottery, painting, jewelry making and more are taught by professional artists and held in large, light-filled classrooms. Exhibit and performance spaces round out the facilities. You have to join to take classes - but in return, you'll enjoy excellent instructors, diverse subject matter, discounts on trips, and lectures.

From 2013: Their innovative campus, classes and programs for kids have been drawing raves throughout the area. But don't miss out on WAC's impressive roster of adult options in everything from painting to the culinary arts. Small classes mean lots of personal attention from the instructor — and zero intimidation.

Best Place to Learn to Cook, 2014: Art enthusiasts, stand aside. Now, the culinary-minded can find their niche with intimate classes taught by reputable Main Line chefs. The best part? Eating what you make.

Best Showcase for Local Artists, 2015: Bringing world-class artists to the Main Line for events like CraftForms and the Plein Air Festival is only part of what the Wayne Art Center does. Nancy Campbell and her staff also shine WAC’s spotlight
on local artists, bringing some impressive work to equally impressed audiences.
