Jan, painting in her outdoor studio

Teaching is one of my passions in this life. I love sharing whatever I know about watercolor with my students – not to have them paint like me, but to enable them to express in their own individual ways using the unique watercolor pigments and what they learn about seeing. I love watercolor. I’ll never completely master it – and that’s the way I like it. For me, it is the joy of the process, of watching the paints move in the water and shape a painting. Now, more than ever, I want to simply share all I know about this magnificent medium.  We all have art and creativity within us and only need to have that spark ignited.”   Jan Hart


I offer private intensives at my home in Costa Rica.  Take a look and email me if you have questions!  Email Jan

Painting the Exceptional Colors of Costa Rica

Paint with Jan in her studio at Casa de Corazon

This option works well for 2 or 3 people and we’ll plan it according to what you want – painting time, instruction, and include some adventures in Costa Rica, too. I love being able to paint alongside another artist or two or three….
