Because of JXTA, my first W9 at the age of 12 was in the arts.

A free, comprehensive visual arts introductory training course

Due to Covid-19 and the uncertainty around what will be possible with public health protocols this summer, we have decided to move Summer 2020 VALT online, and to shift it into a series of shorter Virtual VALT workshops based on the VALT curriculum.

Virtual VALT will meet on Zoom (JXTA will send a link and password before each session). Materials will be available for contactless pick-up from JXTA before each session. Each session is 3 weeks long, with a different technique each week.

SUMMER SESSIONS:
Session 1: June 15 – July 2 (3 weeks)
Session 2: July 6
– July 23, 2020 (3 weeks)
Session 3: August 3 – August 20 (3 weeks)
Week 1 – Contour drawing
Week 2 – Self portraits
Week 3 – Comic character design
Mondays – Thursdays: 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.*

ZOOM INFO SESSION (new VALT applicants must attend):
Info Session: Saturday, July 18th 11 a.m. – 12 p.m.
The Zoom link will be sent via email the week of the selected Info Session

*Please note: dates and times are subject to change. If there are changes, they will be communicated prior to session start. 

JXTA is committed to ensuring the health and well being of our community; we are monitoring the situation around COVID-19 closely.
