Eastern Iowa Arts Academy has provided Jane Boyd Community House with classes that expose youth to a new world of creativity. The program takes youth on a journey through the many dimensions of art.  Classes explore the smooth beats of African Percussion, sculpting clay into a master piece, and taking a vision and bringing  it to life with paint. EIAA instructors are highly trained to help youth discover many unhidden talents and develop new interests. As an after school program, we are invested in making sure our youth are offered opportunities that contribute their advancement in academics, character building, and life skills. EIAA is able to help us accomplish that goal by offering activities that stretch the imagination and equip youth for future learning that expands beyond the classroom.”
