JDS Building


We invite you to explore our website and learn what makes JDS Creative Academy the foremost, innovative creative arts academy in the Temecula Valley.

Scott and Diane Strand, the owners JDS Actors Studio and JDS Video & Media Productions, launched JDS Creative Academy in April, 2014. Born from their desire to create programs to advance education in all the arts industries, the Academy welcomes all students who are looking for in-depth art training and apprenticeships.

JDSCA believes that an education not enhanced by the arts is just empty knowledge without passion. Our hope is that this artistic passion spearheads the creativity that’s needed for students to succeed in college and beyond. In today’s new emerging workforce an education in visual and performing/production Arts is needed to succeed in the future of tomorrow.

What an Education in the Arts Teaches and Enhances

  • Acting teaches: Self Confidence, Communication, Speech, Reading, and Literature
  • Music teaches:‎ Mathematical, and Science concepts, Computer Technology and Linguistics skills
  • Dance teaches: Discipline, Health and Fitness
  • Behind the Camera and Backstage Theatre Crew teaches: Engineering and Technology
  • Fine Arts teaches: Perspective, Composition, Geometry, Balance and can lead to Digital Arts which is Computer Science and Technology


Unfortunately, arts education and training is being missed through the home school, online school, and even partly through the traditional public school environment.

Additionally, the isolation and loss of social interaction through home school and online school makes it hard for our youth to integrate into the arts profession without learning their craft in a collaborative competitive environment.

JDS Creative Academy provides a safe, collective, and creative environment for all youth and young adults to learn the arts. They will gain the education, knowledge, hands-on-training, and skills to advance into higher education or the workforce, and prosper in a competitive marketplace.
