About this pro

We offer small group personal art lessons that focus on creative learning with a lot of opportunities to be unique! We take you through the process of drawing or painting step by step so you can be successful and offer a positive encouraging environment for turning mistakes into masterpieces. Our art lessons aren't just about art, we introduce ideas about culture, architecture, and math terms. I have a BA in architecture with a second major in African and African American studies and have been teaching art for 4 years to children and adults. Check out my website: www.artstudio315.com and Studio 315 page on Facebook, @janetartstudio315 on instagram

I love helping people discover the joy of creativity and learn to accept the mistakes they make in art while finding beauty in what they create!

    Janet is an amazing instructor. We’ve had so much fun and some of us have discovered an artistic side of ourselves that was a pleasant surprise. We enjoy her classes so much and the adults of the family really enjoy her paint nights as well.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I have several classes with fun topics and techniques for students to try. I believe people learn better in a group setting and would love to connect you with a great upcoming class! Each class lists the materials and subjects covered.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a BA in Architecture and African/African American Studies. I have continued my education as an artist through Art Center At Night program and the Creative Arts Group classes in figure drawing, painting and portraiture. I attend bi-annual art teacher conferences to learn teaching techniques. I incorporate a lot of cultural diversity in my painting and drawing classes because I worked for 10 years with international students at universities and colleges and learned a lot about cultural diversity and travelled to several countries around the world. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I have several classes that I offer on my website that range in price from $15-$25 and I also offer private lessons for $30/hour based on request. My classes can be viewed and registered for on my website: www.artstudio315.com


How did you get started teaching?

I worked for 10 years with a nonprofit organization working with international students at universities, forming cultural clubs to help students adjust to the US and helping with free language tutoring in English. I transitioned to teaching art to others through volunteering in local public schools when my own children began school and eventually was hired as an art teacher for a local private school. I love teaching art so much that I decided to open my own studio to teach outside of the school setting where I can create my own curriculum and cultivate creativity in my students. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with children and adults, those who are interested in techniques and also those looking for a fun hobby. Adults who take my classes, even my Paint nights, say that they really learn something and feel more confident to try out painting!

Many children I have worked with have gained confidence in writing because of increased concentration and fine motor skills due to artistic development.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I would recommend that they look for a teacher who keeps things fun, creative and involves a variety of styles while also teaching skills.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

They should think about which materials might interest them the most. If you have never drawn in your life, you might not want to start with oil painting but to start with drawing or acrylic paint. Generally artists will need to purchase some supplies for their classes, but there is a large variety of pricing for art supplies. If an artist is on a tight budget, there should be ways they can still learn skills even without the most expensive supplies.
