Finding New Ways to Create and Explore!

We are excited to bring back limited in-person classes and camps this year.

We are staying vigilant of new COVID-19 variants and changing protocols. The safety of our students & teachers is our utmost concern.

The Junior Center of Art and Science Slated to Return to Lake Merritt Home in Summer 2023!

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 for the coming school year.

During the building rehabilitation process (to be completed June 2023), we are operating out of our new 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.
