Hello, I am Jessica! I have been practicing art since 2006 and have been teaching at Hidden Talent since 2010, also I have been exhibiting my art since 2007. I like to say teaching art isn’t even a real job because it’s so much fun and rewarding. From the beginning i have always enjoyed teaching, getting to watch the students learn and grasp what i am teaching is part of the reason why I will forever be a teacher. Getting to teach art is the best, all my students love to create and want to learn the tools and techniques to better create what they want. This love to learn shows in their art and it’s the most rewarding part of teaching. I also enjoy creating my own art through many different medias from crafts to paintings. I find my inspiration from nature specifically the ocean and all of its creatures. So I’m sorry in advance if your students keep coming home with beautiful ocean landscapes and fun underwater animal scenes! I am continuing my own art education at De Anza college and look forward to transferring to San Jose State in the near future.
