Jenny Schildan

Jenny Schildan

Artist in Residence


Jenny was born and raised in the Portland area, and has over 20 years of art experience, including painting, sculpture, and graphic design. Her paintings have been featured at Bridgeport and in the Street of Dreams show. A family trait, Jenny's artistic talent was strongly encouraged and supported by her family, especially her grandfather, who was an artist by trade. 

In addition to establishing and teaching classes at the two Vine Gogh studios, Jenny has also donated her time to Public School Artist in Residence programs, leading over 900 students through collaborative painting classes. Jenny leads homeless and at risk teens through painting classes each month, patiently encouraging self-expression and therapy through creativity.

Teaching others to paint is Jenny's number one passion, and she is thrilled to be named official "Artist in Residence" at Skamania Lodge.
