About Jennifer Smith
Art is everywhere. Whether students are practicing self expression, observing and appreciating art or both, art is an important way to communicate and connect with one another. It is my hope that they will, at minimum, take away an appreciation of art and knowing what interests them, increasing their creative thinking skills and have a positive, fun experience.
I have been making art in some form my whole life. My first memory is sitting at the kitchen table drawing pictures of people. I often used art as entertainment, practicing things that interested me and creating things that my parents still have to this day! I love to paint in oil, It is one of my favorite things to do.
I also love to do many of the same things others do; outdoor acitivities, being with family and friends, watching movies, reading and having fun.
I love teaching art. It is fun interacting with students, watching them have those ah-ha! moments and watching them become more confident with their artistic selves. I don't expect perfection, it's not possible. I do expect each student to try their best, not give up and choose things that interest them.
