Capturing the Colors of Creativity: JC Arts Council
Board President, Doug Brown participated in vendor events throughout 2023!
Since 1974, the Junction City Arts Council has been a vital tapestry of creativity and connection, weaving together the communities of Geary County and Fort Riley, Kansas. With the opening of our new office and art studio, we will serve as a vibrant hub where artistic expression and culture flourish, nurturing a sense of unity and belonging. Through our programs, scholarships, artist receptions, workshops, and events, JCAC empowers residents with the means to explore, share, and celebrate their diverse talents, bridging the gap between generations, as well as, military and civilian life in Fort Riley. Moreover, we foster an environment where children can discover the magic of creativity, providing them with a platform for growth and self-expression. JCAC isn't just about art; it's about creating a profound sense of community, enriching the lives of all who call this place home.
Elementary students and residents of Brookdale senior living enjoy art class together!
Coming in 2024
One of our most exciting developments is the near completion of the new Education Building within the historic CL Hoover Opera House in Junction City. This facility will house the Council's new office and art studio, where aspiring artists can hone their skills and ignite their imaginations. We will start offering classes in our new art studio in January 2024.
