Instructor:

Jackie Arko

Jackie teaches levels 301 and 401, introducing students to what she considers to be the most challenging and rewarding long form structure: the Harold. She takes a theme-based approach to the form and pushes students to explore - and stick with - the realities they create. Her teaching style is linear, transparent, and includes a variety of hastily-drawn yet highly-informative visual aids. The passion she feels for teaching and for the Harold itself is evident from day one. Also, she swears. A lot.
