About This Class

Printmaking is a unique and versatile art form in which the artist is able to create multiples. There are many printmaking processes, but a great way to start and learn the basics is through the process of creating trace monotypes. After developing a drawing, the artist is able to trace their images into ink as many times as they want. If you can draw, you can print! Even though creating multiples, each print will be unique.

Great teaching. Thank you!
Very clear and easy to follow instructions.
Jessica's instructions were very clear and detailed. She described and demonstrated the process thoroughly so that even beginners to printmaking would have a satisfying and successful result. I am eager to try this technique and see more from the teacher.

The Earth without art is just "eh."

I am a high school visual art teacher from Cleveland, Ohio. I am always super excited to share my passion for the arts with others in order to help them find skills they didn't know they had!

I completed my undergraduate work at Miami University, where I received a B.S. in Art Education, and also a minor in History of Art and Architecture. I went on to receive my M.A. in Art Education from Boston University. 

It is my sixth year of teaching high school art. While I have taught a variety of different classes, I currently teach Art Foundations, Digital Photography, Pottery, Printmaking, and Advanced Printmaking. The Printmaking classes are ones that I am especially proud of, as I started them a couple years ago. I love being able to share my favorite medium with my students.

Outside of teaching, I am the proud owner of Cards with Quirk, my tiny little business that sells my homemade cards, prints and illustrations on Etsy, Felt, and in a couple local stores. I've been honored to have my work included in shows and publications in Chicago, Cleveland, and Cincinnati. In my free time, you can find me reading, hiking, traveling, experimenting in the kitchen, spending time with my fiance, or playing with my dog Luna.
