“Lolly Jamerson’s teaching of art is an act of love. Our daughter has been studying privately with Lolly for more than four years. During that time, she has made her way through high school, a journey for a deeply quiet and introspective young woman which was fraught with uncertainty about herself. The hours spent in Lolly’s haven of a studio were filled with opportunities for listening to varied kinds of music as well as learning about varied kinds of artists. The lessons embodied the best kind of teaching where the teacher is respectful of each student and allows for silent reflection as well as laughter. Our daughter has grown in self-awareness as a person as much as she has made tremendous strides in her artistic expression. Lolly gives her students a solid grounding in art history and techniques. She also encourages the flowering of each student’s unique imagination and potential. Anyone who studies with Lolly is truly fortunate to discover such a nurturing and inspiring teacher.”
