In my own art, I work with many mixed 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…
“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

I provide professional lectures and speaking engagements for the professional art and photography arena, artist groups, colleges and universities. After 25 years as a professional artist and photographer, I enjoy sharing my expertise and experiences in the art and photography business.
