JFFA Educational Programs
Providing arts education, Summer camps, workshops, and outreach experiences to youth of the North Olympic Peninsula. Our goal is to provide these opportunities to all, and offer scholarships and a variety of financial assistance programs.
Festival Kids Show
Each year JFFA launches the Juan de Fuca Festival with three morning school performances that serve over 3000 local students and educators. We proudly bring world class performances to all K-12 students in the Port Angeles School District.
Season Concert Outreach
Touring artists that perform during our season concert series often connect with our community in other meaningful ways such as: workshops, master classes, lecture demonstrations and school shows.
Summer Arts Camps
JFFA offers a week long art-focused camp each summer for youth ages 8-12. This is the second consecutive year that JFFA will be collaborating with Turning the Wheel Productions to facilitate this experience.
Community Arts Project
With grant and community support, JFFA is proudly partnering with the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center and the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula to increase access to youth arts education and, ultimately, generate a community art project to be exhibited at the 2020 JFFA Festival.
