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.
Please call or email for a schedule of classes. If you are an art teacher please let us know of a class you may like to teach.
At this time please call Ben's Jammin' or come in to visit facility for more information.

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.
