About The J.A.L.

The Junior Art League of Waxhaw (J.A.L.) was formed in January of 2013 to provide an artistic outlet that encourages High School Youth in 8-12th grade to follow their artistic passion by exploring their talents and then sharing those talents with the community.


Our monthly workshops and community outreach projects are a great way to gain exposure to a variety of art disciplines and also explore art as a possible career.  The J.A.L. empowers its members to become leaders in our organization as well as the community.

Our Mission:

To provide a resource that encourages youth to FOLLOW their artistic passion by EXPLORING their talents and then SHARING those talents with the community!
