Testimonials for Jan’s teaching

I’ll never forget the week at Ghost Ranch when my son and I were in your class – my first very emotional try at watercolor or any art. This was one of the places we painted. I can say that after the wonderful start you gave me, I have been painting and drawing for 12 years now, and think of you many times with thanks.
Marilyn Shotola


Yesterday I received an email from a juror informing me that my painting,  ‘Piggy Sue’ was among the 9 paintings chosen from Arizona artists that will be exhibited at Texas Tech University in the Western Federation of Watercolor Artists show.As my first teacher, I thought that you would like to know just how far one of your absolute beginner students seven years ago has come due in no small part to the solid foundation with which you sent me off into the world of watercolor.
