An ongoing weekly art opportunity for kids!!

Celebrate creativity every week, with great art for kids at the Jax.

Kids ages 4 to 12 are invited to experience this array of arts and crafts, and thanks to some wonderful sponsors, each session is now only $3 per child!!

Parent participation is welcome, but not required.

You can register online or call or stop by the Jax during regular business hours.

Walk-ins: please call the center before class to make sure that we are holding class that day–advance notice will be given for Thursdays that will not be scheduled.

The Jax does close when Floyd County public schools are closed, so there will be no Afternoon Arts during school closures.

Ecoprinting is a unique process of soaking, steaming and drying to create unique, natural designs on fabric and paper. Along with nature and handmade tools, participants will create breathtaking papers that we bind into an artist book. No experience is necessary. All levels welcome. – See more at: http://jacksonvillecenter.org/classes/09-september/book-arts-ecoprinting-mark-making-fib090514/#sthash.EXHShokA.dpuf
