Jenny Lemons is a colorful clothing company and DIY art school run by San Francisco based artist Jennie Lennick. Our shop is a working studio where we design our products, carry the work of other local artisans, offer DIY workshops, and sell a curated selection of art supplies. Since opening our doors in 2019, we have hosted thousands of people in our creative workshops and carry the work of over 150 independent artists. We are passionate about teaching others to slow down and create things by hand. We love helping our students make items to beautify their homes and give as gifts while learning traditional craft techniques. All of our teachers are formally trained artists, and bring this perspective into their teaching- we encourage students to experiment, express themselves, and have fun!

She received her MFA in Painting from the San Francisco Art Institue in 2012, and her BFA in Drawing, Painting, and Printmaking from the University of Minnesota-Duluth in 2009.
