Jessica was our children’s favorite teacher. She incorporated hands-on art projects into the curriculum to encourage self-expression and creativity alongside learning. She nurtured and provided experienced guidance for all levels of students. Always positive, Jessica brought out the inner artist in even the most stubborn students. Art classes with Jessica involved mixed media such as canvas painting, block printing, stationery making and much much more. I am sure her art studio will be a haven for creative expression, fun and authentic self-expression.

Jessica is an arts educator with a magic touch—whether one on one or in a group setting, Jessica is deeply creative, enthusiastic and encouraging. She inspires children to move beyond that which is comfortable and find confidence and their unique and creative voice through exploration. Children learn best when enjoying themselves, and Jessica is master teacher who is also a lot of fun! My children have been so lucky to experience Jessica’s joy and passion as an educator.

Jessica fosters a love of the process of making art so that the discovery is as important as the final product. Exploring different media in a slow and intentional way taught my daughter that art is neither a science not just play, but a meaningful way to express ideas and feelings.

Jessica has a talent for organizing projects that transcend the usual “kid art” domain. The materials and styles she chooses, coupled with the encouragement and benevolent instruction she provides make the entire creative experience fun and engaging. Her vast knowledge of art and her expertise in working with children make her the perfect person to bring this studio to life.
