Natalie Ruth Jarvis graduated magna cum laude from Brigham Young University in 2014 with a bachelor's degree in studio arts and an art education license. She was included on the Winter 2013, Fall 2012, and Summer 2010 Dean's Lists.
In 2014, Jarvis was chosen to participate at the 2014 Utah Conference on Undergraduate Research (UCUR) hosted by BYU. The same year, she was able to attend a week-long pottery workshop in Taos, New Mexico, dedicated to teaching the traditional hand-building methods of the Pueblo Acoma Native Americans. She and the other attendees from BYU collaborated to create pieces by those traditions, and then displayed the pieces in a gallery in the library on campus. The project was funded by the Laycock Center.
