Riverside Art Center – Let your creativity flow!

Riverside Art Center (RAC) was founded to inspire creativity through the arts.

Located in beautiful & historic downtown Wapakoneta, Ohio, Riverside Art Center is home to a variety of art classes and exhibits for all ages.

We are a home for creative minds and improve lives through education, fellowship and personal accomplishment.

Our reason for existence is to give people a reason to be excited about the Arts!

Reasons the RAC Rocks:


We promote the Arts through programs held at the center and surrounding areas.


We offer memberships, benefits, classes, shows, lectures and demonstrations, as well as participating in several community-minded events each year.


We are open to citizens of all ages, and provide uplifting programs for children, the elderly and the handicapped.


The center is a venue for local member artists to work, attend classes, display and sell their art.


We want to help improve the image of our downtown community by being a positive and healthy influence on the general public.


We provide activities which attract people to Wapakoneta, which in turn, creates more commerce for the city.
