About Me

Welcome! My name is Ms. Jarr. I am a Chicago based artist and art educator. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree with a concentration in Studio Art in December 2019, and my Teaching license in Art K-12 in May 2022 from Northeastern Illinois University. While my emphasis was Drawing, I also minored in Interactive Design and Art History. I also enjoy working with other media such as Graphic Design, Photography, and Polymer clay. This website is dedicated to my art lessons and teaching philosophies. My goal is to create a positive environment that my students can feel comfortable to express their imaginations, build their art skills, and incorporate their interests in my lessons.
