Jessica Monroe will lead a series of children’s art classes, “Fall into Art,” beginning Oct. 11 at the Upper Valley Art League, 921 E. 12th in Mission. Geared for ages 7 to 10 years, it runs for six weeks on Saturdays from 1:30 to 3 p.m., ending Nov. 15.
Monroe began teaching children’s art classes at UVAL in 1998 until 2001 when she left to attend Southwestern University where she earned her bachelor’s in studio art. After graduating, she returned to the Valley and taught art at Med High in Mercedes and Juan Diego Academy in Mission.
During the summer, she studied at New York University and the School of the Art Institute in Chicago. She now spends most of her time in the studio. Her painting are mostly inspired by philosophy and nature.
