The love of children, the love of childhood, and the love of the arts have been the basis of arts programming for children, youth and their families at the Barnsdall Junior Arts Center (JAC) since 1967. The Center is known nationwide as one of a small number of distinguished institutions devoted to excellence, originality, public service and artistic creativity. The Center has provided resources and impetus for extensive, quality arts programming reaching the diverse communities of a dynamic city. The JAC offers extensive arts programs to children and youth, ages 3 – 17. Art instruction held at the Center throughout the year includes drawing, painting, theatre games, printmaking, photography, sculpture, cartooning, art of clay and more. Parent-Child classes are also available.

The Barnsdall JAC Gallery is a 2,000 square foot venue that offers an intimate space for artists who have produced a significant body of high quality work, as well as smaller thematic group shows. The Gallery produces five (5) to six (6) exhibitions in the calendar year, and continues the Center’s almost 50 years mission of promoting and presenting to the general public the art of JAC Students, JAC and Barnsdall Art Center (BAC) Students, and artists from culturally diverse Southern California.
