Jessica Schramm

Jessica chose North Central for studying art education because she fell in love with historic Meiley-Swallow Hall, home of the art department and multimedia art studios. “I knew I’d be spending a lot of time there. I toured art studios before I committed to any school.”

Once at North Central, Jessica found the one-on-one attention she needed from art and education professors. “They teach you everything from kindergarten to high school art, from developing fine motor skills to advanced drawing skills.

“The art department reinforces the importance of research and artist collaboration in each project. Research builds your knowledge on materials and as an artist.”

Jessica knows she wants to become a middle-school art teacher, but also sees herself in graduate school to become an administrator or teach at the college level.

“All my professors taught me something new and helped me grow not only as an artist but as an individual.”
