Artists in Schools 
Our programs in schools are funded by JTLA in order to spark vibrant learning opportunities in the arts.  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.   Programs currently active are:  Artists and Authors Fair, Dance Movement, Music and Beats, Drawing and Art, Mythical Storytelling with upcoming offerings on the way by artists Bret Philpot, Adam Rodriguez, and many more.

Artist Liaison
JTLA provides a variety of opportunities for artists to offer or receive assistance. Artists may work in/with the community to share their skills, promote their art, and facilitate their productions. This can include, but is not limited to: help with grant sources, bridging the gap for artists to work collaboratively with other local organizations, offering locations and opportunities to showcase their work, and advancing their individual education directives. JTLA is working on creating and sharing a list of all artist classes happening and help them spread the word.   Our goal is to have a promotion system that spreads the good word to our community at home and abroad about all the amazing offerings provided by our community.  

Instrument Drive
JTLA believes that all students should have access to music instruction regardless of their financial position.  Our goal is to put an instrument into the hands of young, budding, inspired musicians. JTLA is beginning an instrument drive to gift to children of our community. More details coming soon.

MDLT sign
A collaboration with JTLA sponsored artists and Mojave Desert Land Trust is in the planning stages to rehabilitate the Trusts signage on the 29 Palms Hwy.  Stay tuned for more.
