Jaycee Park Center for Arts & Crafts is part of the Centers & Programs division of the Recreation & Parks Department. Our vision is to help citizens live better lives by exposure to the arts. Our goal at the Center for Arts & Crafts is to provide accessible & high quality arts education to the citizens of Greenville and surrounding areas.
Jaycee Park Center for Arts & Crafts offers a wide variety of art programs for children, youth, and adults. We believe arts programs provide creative outlets for youth and adults that stimulate the mind.
All programs are held at the Center for Arts & Crafts, Jaycee Park, 2000 Cedar Lane. Materials must be purchased separately unless otherwise noted. Various supplies and equipment are available for use here at the Center. Programs are 6 weeks long unless otherwise listed.
