At the core of JTLA’s mission is commitment to arts and community.
We are dedicated to providing arts education to members of our community in an effort to empower individuals to express themselves through creative means.  A little instruction can go a long way to promoting self-confidence.    

Community Workshops: 
JTLA host a variety of workshops that include instruction from a professional artist and provides needed supplies. These workshops include songwriting, painting, dance, music, theater productions, among other cultural and creative disciplines.

Artists in Schools:
The in-school programs funded by JTLA intend to spark vibrant learning opportunities in the arts. It is our mission and belief that this is imperative to a healthy vibrant colorful community. Studies have shown that arts education plays an important role in brain development and facilitates the learning of many skills and concepts for school-aged children, including developing analytical and problem solving skills, cultivating a broad range of thinking, enhancing teamwork, and developing creative and higher-order thinking.   Current programs are:  Artists and Authors Fair, Dance Movement, Music and Beats, Drawing and Art, Mythical Storytelling.
