J-Care Art Exhibition

J-Care Art Exhibition Sun, April 14 1-3pm

Join us for this year’s viewing of the J-Care Art Exhibition Sun, April 12 1-3pm in the Jewish Heritage Center. Experience the creativity and talent of K-5 students from the J-Care Afterschool Program, guided by veteran teacher Janet Hasson, who has an extensive career background in K-12 education and as an adjunct at the University of Arizona. This year, students in the J-Care Afterschool Program focused on developing lifelong skills that encouraged their artistic expression and the execution of their personal vision. They experimented with various mediums like painting, drawing, and collage while simultaneously exploring themes of kindness, community, and work ethic, these “life values” providing the foundation from which truly thought-provoking and dynamic works of art emerged. Come marvel at the impressive and imaginative creations crafted by these young artists, and don’t miss out on this celebration of creativity! We are extremely proud to show off the their efforts and hope you enjoy the show!
