JUNE EVENT: The Artist Experience in Temecula


The Innovative Creative Arts Academy Going Strong with the Artist Experience,
Summer Camp, Fall Classes, and Scholarships

TEMECULA, CA  (May 19, 2015) –  JDS Creative Academy (JDSCA), a nonprofit 501c3, opened its doors a year ago to offer children, teens and young adults an education in the arts with hands-on training and skill development classes. Now, a year after its conception, JDSCA is going strong with a full slate of programs. “The Creative Academy welcomes all students who are looking for in-depth arts training and apprenticeships,” said Scott Strand, the Board of Directors Vice-Chair. “We’re excited about how far we’ve come and even more excited about the future.”

Riverside County Third District Supervisor, Chuck Washington, recently awarded the nonprofit with a $2,500 Community Investment Development Grant, and JDSCA will be utilizing the funds to provide scholarships. “We are grateful for this grant opportunity it will allow us to make an arts education more accessible to more students in our community,” said Diane Strand, the Board’s Chairman.
JDS Creative Academy is kicking off summer 2015 with two great events that bring arts and education to the community in fun engaging ways. These include:

The Artist Experience
JDCA’s first Artist Experience was such a success they’re making it a quarterly event. The next Artist Experience will be Sunday, June 14, 2015 from 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm. Open to the public, a $5.00 door donation includes: admission, refreshments, and an opportunity to experience local artists of all ages, in all mediums of visual and performing art. Chords and Vines radio show will be broadcasting live from the event in addition; there will be arts, craft, and culinary vendors on site. JDSCA is currently seeking exhibitor submissions from artist, performers, and vendors who wish to participate. Applications are available at

Summer Camps
JDSCA will offer two camps to children ages 10 – 17 that will broaden their acting, writing and staging skills in exciting new ways. The two week Improv & Script to Stage Camp gives children an opportunity to learn improvisational skills then write their own play, which they will performance in on the last Friday of the session. The two week Back Stage Camp presents the opportunity to learn “behind-the-scenes” skills doing set design, build and painting, creating props, learning stage hair and make-up, and some lights and sound. Both camps will run from June 15th – 26th. They can be taken individually or together for a discount. More information is available at

“The JDSCA board is busy planning the fall schedule of classes,” said JDS Creative Academy’s Board Secretary, Johanna Lack. “We’re very excited about including some new programs to the fall lineup.” JDSCA’s core classes include: Scriptwriting, Stage Combat and Movement, Acting Styles, and Musical Theater Show Choir. The new classes will be released prior to the August registration.

The mission of JDS Creative Academy is to advance education and training in the arts; theatre, music, creative writing, fine art and production art. Their objective is to fulfill the Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) requirement per the California Education Core Standard for the Home School, Online School, and Traditional School and Trade School populations. JDSCA’s purpose is to enhance the future of the Southwest California Area, our youth, and the arts, engineering and technological workforce in California and throughout the nation through education, training, and apprenticeship. The motivation behind establishing JDS Creative Academy is to help anyone who needs or wants education and training in the arts field.
