We believe that art is for everyone and we envision a world where everyone has complete and equal access to the arts both in school and in the community. We think access to highest quality arts is a basic human right and an essential component for a quality education.
It all started in May,2008 with five, young friends whose own artistic backgrounds show how arts shape a life. The first class was 10 eager students, and today, we reach more than 1000 children every year.
It was our dream to instill in all children the love of the arts, inspiring them to become healthy, confident, productive, creative citizens. A dream to build a centre that would awaken the artistic potential of young people in a way that hadn't been done before. It was a dream to make a difference.
Jalsa was born to tackle the need to have real art educators, who see art as a means to educate, encourage and express.
