Art education is about more than just learning how to draw. Not everyone will grow up to be an artist, but we do grow up with a need to communicate ideas. My lessons teach you how to create beautiful works of art, but they also teach you how to understand another perspective. Artists are visual communicators. They teach us about what is going on in the world. When you listen to different voices you can learn compassion and grow to see the world in a new way. We take a deep dive into each artist so that you can explore their life, their work, and their inspiration. Right now we have a free video lesson on Simon Rodia, an Italian immigrant who spent 33 years working on one sculpture. Come check us out at fillingthegapteaching.com
Filling the Gap Art Education is the culmination of Karina Jacks 10+ years of teaching experience. She has always had a desire to show students the untold art stories and to bring to light the voices that are often cast aside. Her desire to teach began in Chicago, IL at The School Of The Art Institute of Chicago where she received her BFAAE and discovered that she loved to help other artists find their true voice. Join us on this journey to listen, to learn and to grow.
