    Hi! I am interested in taking your spring class on Egypt. Is there a deadline for registration?

    Thank you —

      Hi, Mary. You can register for any of my Spring courses now by visiting or calling 913-469-2323. Classes begin in mid-March. You can enroll in JCCC’s CE courses up until the start date, but it is best to do so at least a week in advance. Thanks for your interest, and I hope to see you in class.

    Hello. My 6th grade grandson is doing a research project on ancient art of Egypt and India. Part of his requirement is conducting an interview with an artest about how studying ancient art influences your work. Would you be available for a 30-minute interview at JCCC one day after school? Thanks.

    I will be traveling to Egypt from 1-12 Oct of this year, and was wondering if there are any classes I can sign up for between now and the year 2020.
