Hello! My name is Mrs. Jarka and I am overly excited to start my first year as an Art Teacher at Oxycocus. I have had the pleasure of attending school in Stafford as a child, so I know that it is a unique and special place.
I received my Bachelor’s in Visual Art and Art Education from Stockton University and The Art Institute of Philadelphia. For the past 13 years I have taught art to students in grades K-5. At home I have a wonderful husband, two very energetic children ages 3 and 5, and 2 adorable little dogs.
During class your child will have the opportunity to explore the wonderful world of art. The projects and activities are designed to explore a variety of art mediums and techniques, as well as history, culture, and technology. My goal to instill a love for creating, exploring, and appreciating art, as well as bringing out individual talent.
Please contact me with any questions, comments or simply to say hello! It's going to be a very colorful and creative year in art!!

PLEASE send your child in with a smock (oversized shirt) or have them dress down on Art day. We will get messy!
