The Children’s Art program is very important to the Jacksonville Arts Council.  Promoting art in the lives of our youngest residents is so important.  This program is free and available to any participant in the Jacksonville Community Center after school program and to the participants of the Jacksonville Boys and Girls Club.  

The focus on these programs is not just arts and crafts, but rather an opportunity to teach about various art styles.  Below you will see examples from our recent virtual Holiday Art Contest and from our budding Picasso’s and from a traditional Thanksgiving display.   We are grateful to have members of the JAC leading this program as well as volunteers from the JSU arts program. 

*** This program is temporally on hold due to social distancing requirements and health concerns.  We look forward to being able to start this program back as soon as we feel we can provide a safe environment for the students and volunteers.
