Education Philosophy

Jenny teaches process-oriented art classes to both children and adults. She values the development of students’ ideas and sense of community just as much as the final product. As a student of art history, Jenny often uses reproductions of artwork to introduce concepts, build dialogue between classmates and assess the level of each student. Jenny gains great pleasure in meeting each student at her level, introducing new techniques and guiding a pathway to success.
