Hi, I'm Miss Jessica. Creator and Educator in Orange County, CA. Enriching our lives with the joy and love of art is one of the greatest things we are able to experience on this planet. I believe every soul out there has a heArt of color. Our lives are the canvas, our souls are the paintbrush.. Mediums I love: paint, watercolors, fiber art, paper art, sculpture, wood sculpture/carving, and metalwork. The Life I Love: I run 3 companies in the art education realm at home and out of various venues in and around Southern California. I have taught art, ages 3 to 18+, for 5 years now. I have managed an art studio and run an after school art program for 2+ years. I have taught workshops at Orange County Educational Arts Academy in Santa Ana, Ca for middle school students. I have self taught and researched the effects of art education on the student as a whole. I continue to learn everyday from my all my students as an Educator and as a student myself.
My mission in life has always been to help guide young minds to reach their potential by unlocking their creativity; as well as passing along what knowledge I have gained in the arts and education. A few rules I teach my art students: 1. There are no mistakes in Art. Every mistake is a portal to a discovery. 2. There is no right or wrong way to make Art. 3. Everyone is an Artist.
