CHECK OUT OUR NEW WINDOWS!


Over the past few months, Jackson has been undergoing a transformation. Our windows have been taken out, repaired and refurbished, and reinstalled by The Craftsman Group, whose artisans worked long hours, dodging working artists and enduring cold, rainy weather.

But all that effort has been rewarded.

The Jackson Art Center has light galore coming in

through clean, refinished windows in all the studios

on the main and second floor.

Come see the difference the light makes!







CHILDREN'S WORKSHOP

JACKSON ART CENTER
3050 R St. NW


Free, no registration required!


SATURDAY, MARCH 28, 10 AM to Noon


Celebrate National Arts Education

Month with Us & Paint like

Joan Miró

Working inside one of the artist studios in Jackson, children will learn about this famous Spanish (Catalonian) painter who used bright colors and amusing shapes and forms to create paintings found in the National Gallery of Art, MOMA, the Guggenheim and museums around the world.  Using crayons, watercolors and markers (all supplied), kids will create their own masterpieces in Joan Miró's style. Miró could paint like a child...a compliment since many adults have forgotten this skill.
