The Johns Creek Arts Center was founded with the belief that everyone in the community should have access to the arts. The Center places a priority on engaging those of all ages who are considered under-served since they lack the resources and/or the opportunity to interact with the arts. JCAC partners with area non profits who connect the arts center to at risk youth. The Center also works with assisted living facilities to bring arts to their residents. All told, each year the Center delivers more than 200 classes, workshops, scholarships and camps through our outreach efforts at no charge to the participants.
