Happy students who have worked with Jessica

Sheila McFarland

Biggest challenge before working with Jessica: Overcoming my fear that I’m not creative. After: Jessica made me feel successful from the very first exercise. She made me enjoy drawing. She is a wonderful teacher able to break down the skills needed into manageable easy pieces.

Barbara Nichols

For me, Drawing, or learning to draw, has always been difficult,mostly due to the negative emotional criticism in my own head. My class with Jessica has been so nurturing and supportive and has provided me a safe environment to make mistakes and actually improve my drawing. I can say I’ve gotten past the negative stuff and am enjoying the process of learning to draw—I think I’m hooked. Jessica’s class has been fun and her instruction is effective and I plan to attend her classes in the future!

Before, when I did art work I knew something was wrong but I didn’t know how to fix it. Jessica has taught me many ways of seeing and interpretation what I am looking at so that my rendering is authentic. AND to not give up but try again—perhaps with a different medium. Jessica is great teacher full of love of art and the joy of teaching. What fun it has been! My greatest joy has been the awareness that creating art is a way of life full of success balanced with a few “oops” that are really signaling a new level of growth.
