Unlike most of the curriculum in which correct answers and rules prevail, in the arts, it is judgment rather than rules that prevail. How qualities interact, whether in sight or sound, whether through prose or poetry, whether in the choreographed movement we call dance or in an actor’s lines and gestures - these relationships matter. They cannot be neglected; they are the means through which the work becomes expressive.
Elliot Eisner, Stanford University
Truth of the matter is, the arts are incredibly important to our children and our communities. We neglect our children when we do not allow them to expand their creativity and encourage them to be innovative. We neglect our community when we shut down the arts and cultural outlets.
With the creative industry continuing to be the fastest growing economic sector in the world, it is our responsibility to prepare our children for a future that will be based on innovation and creativity.
At JC Arts, the underlying responsibility is often masked by the fun our participants have. Our mission is to “Cultivate the Arts and Encourage Creativity.” We believe no child is too young and no adult is too old to start meeting this mission.
We have a full line of opportunities for children from preschool to teens. Please take a moment to look over what we can offer your child.
