CAMP JCAS SUMMER 2023
MORE SPOTS OPENED! NEW CAMP ADDED!
We’ve added a few more spots to our available camps, as well as added a brand new camp – InkStitch: Fashion Design!
In InkStitch: Fashion Design Camp, designers will learn sewing techniques, fashion illustration, draping on dress forms, work with different fabrics and create mood boards that will allow them to explore their identity through fashion. We will take walking field trips to local fabric and vintage clothing stores and watch for trends on our own streets.

The Junior Center of Art and Science Slated to Return to Lake Merritt Home in Spring 2024!
Our beautiful home on the shores of Oakland’s Lake Merritt was damaged by two separate fires over the last year, causing us to relocate to a new temporary home. Our programs continue uninterrupted, and we have increased the number of public school classroom residencies and after school offerings over the last year.
Building rehabilitation has been going well and we anticipate an even brighter future for our programs. Currently we are operating out of our temporary headquarters located at 1224 Harrison St in Oakland’s Lincoln Park neighborhood. We look forward to continuing our 65 plus year commitment of providing quality arts and sciences engagements to deserving youth.
