Expand your artistic insights with an MFA graduate, painter, and experienced art teacher
I like to go beyond the typical art history and theory classes and look at the many diverse factors that influence art and artists. In the art theory classes I took in school, I noticed a typically singular view presented by professors. I encourage my students to look beyond the scope and engage in exercising their own critical muscles when assessing art and the art world. In my classes, we will look at art history and theory, but we will also investigate culture, politics, etc. I will provide planned lessons while leaving space for students to do their own research and prepare their owns assessments. By the end of the class, students will feel confident in discussing and critiquing artwork.
About Jessica E.

Hi! I am a painter, designer, and teacher. I graduated in 2012 from Pratt Institute with my MFA in painting and drawing. After graduating, I have continued to work either in the design/art fields or as a teacher. I have sold paintings all over the world and currently show online. My collectors range from individuals to hotels. During the pandemic, I took a creative break from art making to focus on my teaching business. I have tutored art history students, beginning artists and emerging artist one-on-one. With emerging artists, I treat our classes like a master studio class, encouraging my students to examine their work from all angles and question how it fits into the world. Beyond art, I also teach English. I was in China for a year until the pandemic hit, then I returned to the US. Teaching art and English are quite similar because the goal is for one to be able to express themselves in a way that they want to be heard and understood. They are both about conversation. I greatly enjoy being about to instigate and expand these conversations with my students.
