Mrs. Jenna Brasdovich

I am so excited to be in my 9th year of teaching in Mentor. I create an environment within my art room where students can have an exciting journey through different mediums in art, while also learning about many different art styles. My curriculum includes all of the visual art standards while focusing on the common core discovery style of learning and many 21st century skills.


Please feel free to call or email me any time with your concerns or comments. I hope that every student really can enjoy themselves in my classroom, while having their own personal art journey :-)

XOXOX, Mrs. Brasdovich
