Jan-Carolyn-painting-studioTestimonial for private painting instruction

“I found Jan on the internet through a Costa Rica website a few years before I actually met her but she was always at the back of my mind as someone I would love to meet and learn from. Jan is a warm, caring and deep person who shares not only her invaluable expertise in art and colour but also her very interesting amazing story as a person. Jan paints with her mind and her heart. Her instinct and knowledge in colour was very eye opening and profound. What I like most about Jan’s style is her boldness of colour and vivid portrayals of nature and the environment. Jan was very approachable and down to earth. I look forward to continuing my education in art with Jan next year when I return for my “winter” in Costa Rica. Thanks Jan!”

Testimonial for a Private Intensive

Mary-Lu-on-deck“Every moment I spent in Costa Rica with Jan was an eye opening experience.  She has created a unique and lovely indoor/outdoor home in a magical place.  I found it peaceful and calming.

 I also had fun sharing laughter, interesting conversation, great food and some “WOW”  experiences with my two fellow painters.

 As an artist and teacher Jan is kind and encouraging, insightful and skilled in relaying ideas.  I loved her enthusiasm and her patience….

 This was an unforgettable experience.  I came looking for inspiration and found it!”

  1. I am interested in one of your winter 5 day workshops. I have been painting with watercolor for just over 3 years and don’t have the most confidence in what I am painting.(especially when I have been in workshops that seem to be beyond me.) I have purchased your slide series so I would get some flavor of your painting/thinking.
    Would you think your 5 day would work for me. (also, as a 72 yr.old widow and retired teacher, I have never been to Costa Rica.) I am already on your mailing list.

  2. Hi, Linda! I believe we’ve already talked about this and I’d love to have you come! PLease send me an email and we’ll get started! jan@janhart.com I look forward to hearing from you!

  3. Hi Jan,
    I am a local gringo in Costa Rica and I met you years ago and asked if you wanted to teach me and you didn’t teach at the time. Now I see you have had the Tick Times write an article, congratulations! And I was wondering if you do a local rate for a day class. I live here and cannot pay 150 dollars for a session. I also am a licensed massage therapist and Reiki Master as well as teach Kundalini Yoga, if any of that interests you! Thanks a lot! Hope to hear from you!

    • Hi, Kim,
      Thank you for contacting me after so many years. Please let’s keep in touch and figure a way to have you spend a day here painting with me. My busiest times are January – March, so I’m thinking it will be better for me in April, 2017. I’ll keep your email address and put a note on my calendar. Can you do the same – and email me so we can figure a good way to do this? Thank you so much! see my email address under contacts.
