Olumuyiwa “Mr. J” A.

Olumuyiwa J. Ajagbe (“Mr. J”) is the Art Instructor at the East DeKalb Club.  He says that the best part of his job is being able to share his passion, knowledge and experience in art with the youth and teens.  He most enjoys when a member ‘in the zone’ with their art project – “you can see that the art project is really speaking to them like a conversation, they speak back with a finished piece of art that they are proud of, which makes me proud”.  To him, the best part of BGCMA is sharing moments of laughter and impacting and shaping young lives while also being impacted himself.
