Art Center Director/Artist/Instructor
Jennifer Pentecost is a painter, printmaker, photographer, and teacher. Formerly the studio director of Granville Studio of Visual Arts and art programs director at The Learning Camp (Vail, CO). Jenn graduated from Ohio University with a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts and a strong background in Art History. “My philosophy is that art builds minds, and I have one goal at the end of the day: to teach children to love art for arts sake.”
"We are all artists, even if we don’t carry around a paintbrush or a drawing pad. I believe there is an artist in everyone, and it is my goal to help children recognize and utilize their artistic ability, no matter what task they are given. Learning art is a passion of mine that will, thankfully, never stop. Teaching your children fuels my passion, because they teach me something new every day."
