About Jessica

Jessica Rose H. grew up in the town of McMinnville, Tennessee. Known for its beautiful national park and nurseries, McMinnville allowed Jessica to develop a love for the natural world. She found a love for art through community art programs, and began her college career at Tennessee Technological University desiring to teach art on a professional level. She soon realized how much she enjoyed working in the fibers studio at the Appalachian Center for Craft. Since 2010, Jessica has been working to acquire a BFA in Textile and Fiber Arts under instructor Jeanne Brady. In April of 2015 She made her first debut as an artist with her BFA Thesis Exhibition show titled Moments of Clarity. Jessica is actively involved in the Outreach Program at the craft center. Students from all over TN come to the Craft Center's outreach program to take an art class and learn a new process/skill. Jessica loves to work with students and see them succeed in their artistic endeavors. She pushes students to always do their best and encourages them to appreciate art throughout history and see art in their everyday lives. Jessica has been recognized nationally for her work in textiles and worked in New York City as an intern for Kordal Knitwear. She is currently student teaching at a middle school and will acquire a degree in Art Education as well as teacher licensure in May 2016.

I also encourage you to contact me via email and let me know what you need help with and, we will schedule a lesson. If there is a specific art process that you are struggling with, I can give you pointers on how to master the process quickly and correctly.

Drawing

I have 8 college credit hours of drawing experience from Tennessee Technological University. I have experience using drawing techniques in my own artwork. I have taught drawing classes using portraiture, still-life, and cross-hatching techniques while my time as a student teacher. I also take time everyday to draw for 1-2 hours in a personal sketchbook for practice.

Painting

I have 8 credit hours of painting experience from Tennessee Tech University. I also have experience painting with dye on fabric. I use painting techniques frequently when designing and painting fabrics. I teach students in the Outreach program how to use painting techniques when designing and making fabric. I also have experience using Tempra, oil, and Acrylic paints.

Photography

I have taken a couple of photography classes and also week long work shops. I have used film cameras and I know how to use a dark room to develop the film. I understand how to use programs such as Photoshop to enhance digital images. I have used the skills I acquired to take images of my artwork as well photo shoots involving models. I have taught basic photography classes during the outreach program that I have been a part of for the past 3 years.
