10th Annual Summer Soirée


Please visit our Soirée website for more info.

Our Annual Summer Soirée and 10th anniversary celebration has been postponed.
Please mark your calendar for Friday, July 2, 2021!

Your past support of the Summer Soirée has been so greatly appreciated.  Thank you!
The Soirée underwrites every aspect of the JAC’s operations, including Scholarship & Programming funds, bringing the Arts to all in Jamestown. Now, we are working to find other ways to sustain the JAC through this difficult year.

If you’re lucky enough to be in a position to contribute, please consider a gift to the JAC today in lieu of your previous generosity for the Soirée. A gift of $250 for example, the average cost of a Soiree ticket, ensures 100% of the funds go directly toward sustaining the JAC arts programming.
Now, more than ever, your gift has an enormous impact.

Your support in honor of #GivingTuesday will help ensure that the JAC will be here to foster a vibrant arts community, today and when we open our doors again.

Thank you for everything you contribute to the community we all love.  We are grateful.

Children’s Birthday Party – Choose a Theme!

Children’s Birthday Parties include an art project led by a JAC instructor. Choose a theme and we’ll do the rest! Themes are:


Create a unique owl mask out of recycled materials and decorate it any way you’d like using paint, markers, glitter and paper feathers!

Sea Life

Create a beautiful diorama full of colorful shells while learning all about the different plants and animals that live in our ocean! Fun and educational!


Spend some time collecting natural materials like sticks, stones and leaves in the nearby park, and return to the JAC to build your very own Fairy House!


Create colorful little dragons out of recycled materials that can sit on your shoulder or breathe fire, and decorate your dragon any way you’d like!

Planes, Trains and Automobiles

This party’s all about transportation: draw and build cars, trucks, planes or boats using cardboard and other fun recycled materials!

Colors of the Rainbow

Take part in fun and arty games that explore the many ranges of colors we see every day, and make a cool piece of artwork to take home, too!
