Jen Boden is the Outreach Coordinator as well as one of the outreach and in-house instructors for the Community Arts Center. As an artist and educator, she is passionate about bringing the arts into our community, and believes that uninhibited imagination and freedom of expression are vital in childhood development and mental health throughout adulthood. Jen first realized her niche in the art world during her junior year of college while shyly taking an elective painting class. On track to have a career working with kids, she realized painting was an entirely different experience than she’d ever had before, and she knew she had found the tool that would allow her to be a part of the education system and to touch the lives of students. Jen holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Studio Art and has acquired a lot of experience in art education, including four years writing and teaching her own art curriculum as a classroom teacher on a Native American Reservation. Her unique experience has helped Jen glean various art skills as well a deep love for all cultures and people. She has worked as a freelance artist for years, selling via consignment and commission. Jen’s favorite medium is oil paint and her favorite subject matter is the sky- a reminder of how small we are but how protected and valued we are by creation. She also enjoys running, gardening, and time spent with her two labs, but most of all she loves having the opportunity to share her passion with the community by teaching something that can bring us all together.
