Giving Tuesday was started in response to Black Friday and Cyber Monday to create a day to inspire donations to nonprofit organizations around the world. In our third year, the Jansen Art Center is excited for the goals we have been able to accomplish in connecting artists with the community through classes, open studios, the Gallery Shop, performances and arts exhibitions. In this short time, we have watched artists develop their skills to the point where they are selling their work in our shop. We have seen young musicians perform in front of audiences. We have watched new artists of all ages engage through our textile and jewelry studios, and gotten to know so many artists through our Juried Exhibitions program. We are proud of what we have done. Your #GivingTuesday donation will help us continue these important programs.
