Description of Agency
Founded in 1937 by a group of local artists and Main Line residents, Main Line Art Center began and continues to operate as a not-for-profit arts organization. The Art Center’s mission is to inspire and engage artistic creativity for individuals of all ages and abilities and to celebrate and strengthen the essential role of visual art in community life.
With its vast and wide-ranging course offerings, Main Line Art Center has become a regional leader in visual arts education for individuals of all ages and abilities from Delaware, Montgomery, Philadelphia, and Chester Counties as well as New Jersey and Delaware. Notable for making art accessible to diverse groups throughout the community, the Art Center attracts more than 10,000 students and patrons of the arts each year. Its extensive outreach programs and promotion of new artists through multiple exhibition opportunities help attract individuals new to the arts and cultivate support from art patrons.
Named by Philadelphia Magazine as the Main Line's "Kid’s Funky Find" and voted "Best Art Instruction" by readers of Main Line Life, Main Line Art Center continues to nurture and strengthen the creative spirit of children and adults, while enhancing community through the visual arts.
