“I am very grateful to live in a community where a place like the Jamestown Arts Center not only exists but thrives. The JAC offers programming to our community that is generous, diverse, and digs deep. The openness and support of the JAC staff is remarkable and inspiring.”
– Alix Flood, Jamestown Resident

“If I could change one thing about this camp it would be that it was only one week – I would love to do this camp longer! It was a great experience!” –Digital Photography Summer Camp Participant

“Driving by JAC one morning, I was literally flagged down by Kate and Vivi who were enthusiastically promoting some of the great fall programming. They convinced me to sign up for Cafe Clay, which, as a non-artist, I did mostly to support my friends and the JAC. Little did I know how much I would LOVE this class, and how surprised I would be at what I could create!”

“I wish all of Jamestown realized how lucky it is to have such a unique resource. As a military spouse, I’ve lived all over the world and have found that places like the JAC are, sadly, rare.” – Amanda Bridges, Jamestown Resident
