Jeannie Guthrie is an artist and art teacher specializing in Reggio-inspired art teaching, in which students are encouraged to problem-solve and hone critical thinking skills. Guthrie taught in public (Pre-K-5) schools in Tuscaloosa, Alabama and in Little Rock for 12 years.
In 2013, Miss Jeannie’s back porch turned into an outdoor art studio for toddlers and pre-schoolers on sunny afternoons. In 2016, she opened Guthrie Studio to host after-school art classes, camps and craft nights. Three years later, Guthrie Studio became ZIG ZAG, and opened the doors of its new space in Little Rock’s historic Hillcrest neighborhood.
Miss Jeannie holds a Bachelors of Fine Art from Sewanee, The University of the South, and a Masters in Education Administration from the University of Alabama. She loves the outdoors and food. Her two daughters, Clare and Alice, enjoy making messes and art projects as much as she does.
