Capital City Council on the Arts is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the community cultural environment through education, art exhibition and providing opportunities for individuals to develop artistically. Classes offered year round.

In case you are wondering what we do at Capital Arts, here is a brief overview.

Capital Arts Gallery hosts seven exhibitions annually filling the Gallery with a variety of art each time. Since January 2009, we have exhibited hundreds of Artists and displayed over 2,000 pieces of art. Non-profits are allowed to exhibit "art" at a discounted cost.

The Gallery is also a part of a city wide Gallery Crawl hosted twice a year. This event is free and open to the public. Participants are encouraged to visit each Gallery, meet the artists and enjoy an evening of art.

It is our goal to serve our community with artistic opportunities and one way we do that is by offering ongoing Studio Workshops. Classes from painting to book making are available at an affordable cost, and foster children may enroll for free.

As you can see, we value our children's education and another way we reach out is through our Art in a Suitcase program. Over 45 dedicated volunteers, with custom made suitcases, present the Masters and their art from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries to each 4th grader in our community, six times a year!

Another Arts Education opportunity is the Capital Arts Imagination Station, designated for moms and their kids to drop in and create art! Imagination Station is equipped with recycled materials and art supplies ready for their imagination!

Capital Arts also continues to coordinate the Capital Jazzfest & Street Art Fair which is held in September in Downtown Jefferson City. This year there were 150 students, from elementary to high school, creating masterpieces in chalk. Day two consisted of amateur and professional artists of all ages, chalking it up for top honors and prizes.

At Capital Arts, we are always looking for ways to keep the arts alive. What better way than to appreciate the wonderful art we have in our backyard!
