JLI Academy Art Instruction is Process Oriented


Lead artists guide participants through a series of lessons including demos, exercises, practice, and critique. Each term includes an opportunity to create one or more finished pieces, either following a common design, or students may choose to design their own projects.

Offering this level of learning, along with preparing Lead Artists to teach effectively at this level, is JLI Academy’s primary service goal.
