James House is a student space for arts and crafts, accessible 24-hours a day with your HC keycard. James House is for you!
James House began as a student initiative in 2005. The goal was to create a space in the former security building located between Gummere, Parker House and Woodside that could be used entirely by students to make art on their own time. Four years later, the space is filled with comfy furniture, tons of art supplies, and a continually rotating set of murals on the walls. Each semester we hold several student-led workshops on arts and crafts projects ranging from stenciling to pumpkin carving to screenprinting. James House also generally holds 1-2 arts-themed parties a semester.
James House is headed by a board of students. The board is responsible for keeping the house clean and well-stocked, as well as organizing and hosting workshops and parties.
