The School…

Jonesboro School of Art is owned and operated by award winning portrait artist, Tanya Eddy.  JSA is an after school art program, offering art instruction for students Kindergarten through High School.  All students are exposed to art history through the study of works by both the great masters and modern day artists.  Younger students are introduced to General Art classes, which will develop their skills for the older, advanced classes.  Junior and Senior High students concentrate their studies in the areas of Drawing, Painting, and Design.  (A portfolio compilation program is available for Sr. High Students.) 

In August 2009, Jonesboro School of Art opened its doors to 6 students.  Through the Lord's blessings, JSA has grown to over 80 artists.  Since opening, our students have successfully participated in art competitions throughout Arkansas and Tennessee, bringing home dozens of awards.
