We’ve expanded our course selections this year to offer brand new and highly requested classes, including:

  • Colorful Expressions: Students tap into their creative side using several different mediums to create stunning works of customized art.
  • Printmaking Palooza: This class explores basic printmaking techniques including monoprint, block printing, collagraph and simple silk screen to create unique artworks.
  • Fashion Boot Camp: Students learn creative ways to apply the principles and elements of design in fashion product development. Participants construct their own purses as their primary project!
  • Exploring Criminal Justice: Students leave this class with an excellent introduction into the criminal justice system.
  • MakerLab 101: Held in JCCC’s “makerspace,” students use 3D printers, a laser cutter and coding/soldering tools to create one-of-a-kind projects to take home.

“We are very excited to present our 2022 Summer Youth Enrichment program! We’re glad to be able to offer even more in-person courses to engage better with our students. Staff and faculty members are looking forward to another summer of fun and learning,” said Molly Salisbury, Program Coordinator, Summer Youth Enrichment Program.
