In my own art, I work with many types of art mediums, so I love to teach art enrichment workshops
where attendees can explore different mediums to create unique and personal art.  I teach art workshops for children, teens and adults.   Workshops can be a one time, week-long, or a once a week/month workshop.  It is so great to watch a student find their creative spark while exploring a specific art medium.  I currently teach workshops in the Greater Los Angeles area and private lessons in my studio. I also offer programs at libraries, Girl Scouts, specialty art shops, and other community organizations.  Please contact me if your organization is interested in a program to discuss the details.


Here are a few words from workshop attendees…

calligraphy class“Janell offers so many fun and creative workshops that can be tailored for any age group. I relied on Janell so many times while I was a teen librarian. She has a wonderful rapport with teens and kept them busy and inspired with jewelry making, manga drawing, and digital photography.  I highly recommend Janell if you are looking for innovative and high-quality programs.” –Veronica, Librarian

“I recently participated in a mixed medium art workshop with Janell.  Such a patient and positive instructor, very willing to help and advise each student individually.  She provided excellent input and suggestions, especially when I had a temporary artistic block! I am looking forward to attending more of her drawing and painting classes.”  –Renee

Janell’s workshops are so fun and I learned a lot!  She taught us detailed techniques and then let us create a piece of art with the knowledge we learned.  –Katie

Janell really is a mermaid! – Trina (Age 4)
