Ben's Jammin' Art Project; created in the memory of Benjamin Cocco whose passion was art and music. His life was an art project. Creating was like breathing. It is our goal to nurture this passion in other youths.
Last Saturday of the month, this month April 26, starting at 6pm we will be having another drum circle. We will also have the opportunity to receive a dance lesson, Joy of Nia movement. Come join us. Please bring your drum and one to share if you have an extra. You are also encouraged to bring a snack to share and your own beverage.
Come do free art and music with us on most Saturdays at the Delmars Farmers Market from 9-1, located at the Bethlehem Middle School. Starting up again in the Spring. It won't be long!

Music and art nurtures the human spirit, enhances academic performance, increases self-esteem, teaches team building, and promotes social skill development. Music and the arts are as essential to a well-rounded education as science, math, and literacy.
It is our goal to help our youth find enjoyment in the arts and to help them excel to the best of their abilities. We will work toward our goal using three approaches to be accessible to as many students as possible.
