Painting Demonstrations and Workshops


Over the years Janet has worked with many different groups around the world….both adults and young people. When working with groups where there is no common language, painting becomes a universal language…allowing for what is often a deeper communication. The goal of her workshops and painting demonstrations with young people is to encourage the ability to focus, be present and explore their own creative path.


Along with regular tutorials on Janet's blog - future workshops will be announced here.


The video below was made by Janet's friend and fellow artist Bonnie Halsey Dutton. Bonnie is currently studying at the University of Arizona…and several months ago conducted an online interview with Janet on how she uses the internet and social media for her work in general and more specifically for teaching purposes. As part of the same project she made this video.
