Meet the Teacher

Jacqueline Bevan


Jacqueline Bevan brings a lifetime of experience producing and teaching art to the Perkowitz Art Studio with our new ART WORKSHOPS program. Participants get to spend an enjoyable evening getting away from everyday life, learning something new and actually producing a beautiful piece of art. The full schedule can be viewed here.


Since 1996, Jacqui has been involved in the art world in a variety of roles; teacher, art show coordinator, judge, juror and award-winning professional artist.  She’s been an art teacher for the past 22 years, teaching everything from AP Art History to 6th Grade Art.  As an artist she finds inspiration from nature, its beauty and mystery is never-ending, constant variances, constant evolution.  Over the years Jacqui has worked with many different media, always focusing on color and texture to develop richness and depth.  She loves experimenting with new techniques and materials to constantly challenge herself.  She currently has two bodies of work which she shows professionally around the Midwest, 2D mixed media collage and fused glass jewelry.


When not in the studio or classroom, Jacqui can usually be found working in her garden or exploring the world around her looking for ideas for her next work of art.
