Our Mission

Inspire.  Create.  Empower.

JAM is a creative haven which invites youth from every walk of life to express themselves through the powerful conduit of art & music.  Stay tuned as we work to reopen our creative haven in downtown Norwalk!




There is no limit to your creativity when your creativity is not limited.


Junior Art & Music (JAM) was founded in 2010 by local, award winning kindierocker and art educator, Dre Towey. The studio is the marriage of her three loves: Art & Children & Music.  Since then thousands of children have benefited from the hands-on, process oriented art and music which is JAM’s signature. Whether painting, singing, splatting, spinning, strumming or drumming, children discover that there is no limit to their creativity when their creativity is not limited. Thanks to the generosity of our community, through grants and individual donations, the JAM studio has created programs for children, teens and families from The Open Door Shelter, Neon, The Housing Authority, The Carver Center, Boys and Girls Club of Stamford, Goodwill, Mid Fairfield Child Guidance, Girl Scouts of America, Community Steps, Norwalk 2.0, Norwalk High School Special Needs Transition Program, Brien McMahon High School, Side By Side Charter School, The Future Project and Family & Children Services. JAM has hosted a Literary Arts Program for families, a Teen Music Series, as well as art, design, film classes and camps for children ages 7-14.

We believe art and music play a critical role in community building, social justice, advocacy, youth development, and health and wellness. We believe art and music can be a powerful conduit to link individuals inspired to serve, and communities and organizations in need. We believe there is an urgency to unite people around these principles.  As a 501(c)3, JAM is expanding its art and music outreach, fostering relationships with local organizations and inviting more children and families to our studio at little or no cost.
