Jamie came to Theo ten months ago as a diamond in the rough! with great recomendations, great artistic talent! and a character like no other! It does not take long to warm up to Jamie. Her solid work ethic, and the willingness to share her love for art is what makes her an asset for this little art school that could. Jamie teaches age groups 10 months to 100 years old. I hope that Jamie stays with Theo Art School for a long time. Her favorite art medium? Charcoal and Pencil! But Jamie can teach any medium!
