Sample Course Offerings

Please contact Jane directly to schedule a class or workshop.


Custom Workshop  –  Gather a group of friends and host a fun workshop in your home or at a nearby Community Center. The focus and duration of the workshop is up to you!

“Anyone Can Draw!”  –   Just like playing a new musical instrument, drawing is a learned perceptual skill that improves with awareness building and practice.  This class offers a guided progression of skill building applications and is recommended for all levels.  

Beginner Watercolor –  This course introduces a progression of fundamental watercolor skills. Through demonstrations and one-on-one learning, the primary focus is to understand how watercolor works and how to apply techniques to any subject of choice.

Intermediate Watercolor –  The progression of class is always unique and unpredictable.  Using “teachable moments”, mini-demos and ample one-on-one time, the primary focus is on meeting the immediate questions and challenges that arise while students paint any subject of choice.

“Loosen Up” with Watercolor –  This landscape workshop invites you to experiment with bigger washes and larger brushes to try a looser style of painting. Emphasis is on developing techniques that allow for a less confined approach. No prior experience needed.

Fur, Feathers and Fins – Learn the skills and techniques needed to render your favorite animals and birds in watercolor, colored pencil or graphite.  We will focus on drawing accuracy, developing proficiency with the chosen medium and rendering natural textures such as feathers and fur.

Painting Faces in Watercolor –  In this class, you will develop drawing accuracy; transfer a drawing to watercolor paper; mix skin tones; paint hair and clothes and apply layers of shadow patterns.  Improving application of techniques will guide your painting closer towards facial resemblance.

Collage –  Learn the remarkably simple and enjoyable skills of paper collage. Using scissors, X-acto knife, a variety of gluing techniques and colorful handmade papers, we will create exciting realistic or abstract imagery.

Fees – Weekly and Workshop fees are determined on a case by case basis. Please contact Jane directly.

Private Lessons – $35.00/hour. Mileage fees may apply.
