Council for the Arts

The Council for the Arts is a group of volunteers from the College and the surrounding communities that foster and encourage an appreciation and enjoyment of the fine and performing arts. The council's ultimate goal is to develop a lasting love for the arts in SJC students and in the larger community, which will encourage their active involvement either as participants or as informed spectators.
