Why? The Old Jerome High School is a historic site, making the name known state (and nation) wide. The Jerome Art Center is the hub of our campus, with spaces for artists to create and show their works. We have combined the two names, now making it Jerome Art Center @ The Old Jerome High School, keeping true to the buildings' history, and modern times.
Do you have an awesome photo taken at the Jerome Art Center? We would love to share them on our website! Being a historical site in Jerome, the Jerome Art Center (formerly the Jerome High School) is one of the most-visited spots because of it's amazing views of the Verde Valley, our vintage buildings and our talented diverse group of artists. Stop by, take a photo or two and meet our skilled, creative occupants.

Plein Air Painter, Mark Hemleben, is our Featured Artist this month. "There's a magnificence in the still solitude of nature." Impressionist Landscape Artist, Mark Hemleben, captures the intensity in his plein air oils, documenting the change of light and the dance of shadows and colors. "Its vibrancy and harmony and splendor are what inspires me to capture the abundance of life and energy, the constant change of light and season."
