Welcome to the Jansen Art Center!
Our mission is to create opportunities for the community to engage in the arts.
Making a Difference
In August of 2012, visionaries, architects, designers and contractors came together to build something unique not just for Lynden, but all of Whatcom County. What was once the City Hall and Fire Hall on Lynden’s Front Street, now stands the Jansen Art Center. With 6 creative art studios, a 110 seat performance hall, 2 floors of exhibit space, a café and gallery shop, the J is a bright, lovely place for all to enjoy.
The J creates opportunities for the community to engage in the arts. Using a quarterly program system, new classes and exhibits are updated every three months. Whether it’s ceramics, dance, fine art & painting, jewelry, music, textiles, exhibits or performances, there is something for everyone at the Jansen Art Center.
Classes & Workshops
We are dedicated to creating a community of inspiration and discovery. A place where children, teens and adults can learn, create and have fun in a relaxed, professional studio environment.
Sgraffito2Go is a one-hour online ceramics workshop! Students have the rare opportunity to jump into the middle of the ceramics process, learning how to carve their designs into 2 unfired pots (greenware).
