Jon Rader Jarvis
has been called a colorist and a neo-realist. His images come from the commonplace to show the beauty in everyday objects and places. Since an early age he has been called a Renaissance man. He is an accomplished web designer and uses web sites as teaching tools in his classes; class notes and student work are presented online as the class progresses.

His stated philosophy, repeated for his students, is that we should make choices from knowledge, not ignorance. The greater the knowledge about art making, the better the result. A firm believer in positive criticism, he leads a short critique at the end of almost every class. With a sense of humor and an appreciation of the joy that art making can bring, his classes tend to be popular and well attended.
