Kids Do Art!

The mission of the Jansen Art Center is to engage the community in the arts, and a large part of that is giving kids opportunities to try a variety of art forms. We host four Kids Do Art! events each year: Spring Break Workshops, Summer Camp, Fall Open House, and Winter Art Jingle.

Spring Break offers 3 days of workshops that coincide with spring break for the Lynden School district. Students can register for 1-2 workshops per day, for a total of 6. These workshops represent the art studios at the Jansen Art Center and generally include a combination of ceramics, dance, music, painting, textiles, jewelry, multi-media art, and literary arts.

Summer Camp is a week-long art camp held in the summer. Students can take an art sampler class in the morning to try 5 different art classes and they can register for an intensive class for the afternoon – so they can learn more about one art form over the course of the week.

Fall Open House is an event at the J to give the families in the community an opportunity to DO ART! in each of our studios.

The Jansen Art Center is excited to serve as a teaching space for artists. Our instructors are passionate about engaging the community in the arts.


Trisha Dawn Coggins enjoys the Art of Life and has a true appreciation for helping others to see the world through their own creative eyes. With inspiration from nature, texture, light, movement, and music, she seeks to capture the essence of life in each moment. Her mediums are photography, sculpture, drawing, painting, fashion, and interior design.

She studied Fine Art at West Chester University and The Moore College of Art and Design, apprenticed with stone sculptor David Breeden in Charlottesville, Virginia, and educated students for the last 14 years in the Virginia and Pennsylvania public schools.
