John F Janzen turned to creating at an early age, encouraged by family, friends and teachers. After a lifetime of doing so, with a smattering of art education along the way, he enjoys sharing these pleasures with others. He has more recently attended watercolour workshops on progressive techniques and would like to pass along these tips and processes. New creatives, children and mature students who have never experienced these joys are favourite students for his focus.

John’s expectations are for participants to enjoy a convenient, creative art practice with a time honoured way to express themselves with less struggle. Participants will watch a DVD with a professional watercolour painter showing the rudiments of getting your tools and art supplies in the correct sequence, and reviewing the importance of doing so. A project or two will round out an exciting day with break halfway, after the discussion time.
