VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH
The Desert Art Center is pleased to announce that Jessica Schiffman is our Volunteer of the Month. Jessica works on the Middle School Art Project, a program which provides hands-on art instruction to local middle school students, exposing them to skills and media they would not otherwise experience.
Her interest in art education began when she was a student in the Bay Area public schools. As early as she can remember, art was what she yearned for, yet there were no art classes available. She attended the San Francisco Art Institute where there was practically no instruction, but years later Jessica went back to school to fill the gaps in her education. As a result she's passionate about teaching art.
Jessica has been a professional artist most of her life, having illustrated children’s books and painted murals, figurative paintings, plein-air and landscapes. She has taught workshops and classes at the Idyllwild Arts Academy for more than ten years and teaches drawing and painting at the Desert Art Center.
While in the gallery, take a moment to study her wonderful works of art.
