WOOSTER Wayne Center for the Arts is now registering for Fall 2020 classes, providing online, in-person, and art kit options for students from infants to adults. The new catalog in visual arts, dance, clay, creative writing, theatre, and music is now available on the WCA website, according to a news release.
Classes are being offered with an “arts for everyone” theme, as WCA staff wants to provide a range of options and prices that are accessible to everyone in the local community. New guidelines have been adopted for in-person classes to improve student safety, although an expanded range of kits and online classes also allows participation from wherever the student is most comfortable.
Highlights of the fall schedule include new creative writing classes, a ceramic jewelry course for adults, and a plethora of art and clay take-home kits. One of the kits, the “STEAM Camp Kit,” is the first offering from the Wayne Center for the Arts’ new “STEAM Factory” project. WCA Executive Director James Fox leads participants by video in five projects combining engineering and design, including a hydraulic claw and a battery-powered boat. The STEAM Factory will eventually create a dedicated space for science, technology, engineering, arts, and math classes on the WCA campus.
All of WCA’s popular Family Clay Workshops are now also available as kits, including the Haunted House, Gingerbread House, and the Holiday Ornaments usually offered at Window Wonderland. Ballet, tap, contemporary, and jazz hip-hop dance classes are being offered with the option to participate in-person or online. The Wayne Center Ballet Company has embraced the hybrid approach for intensives this summer and has been encouraged by the progress and success of all its dancers.
Other offerings include Acting 1 & 2, offered through a partnership with Magical Theatre Company, and music classes for infants through adults. Visual arts classes also include everything from “Mixed Media Madness” for preschoolers to “Limitless Watercolor,” “Charcoal Portrait Drawing,” and a “creepy” fall Cartoon Drawing class for adults.

The art center’s building is currently open for limited hours, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Monday through Friday.
