News from Janine Helton

“The extra time due to stay-at-home orders got me thinking…and I came up with a plan to spend the month of June developing online watercolor workshops.”

Equipment and support services:

• A licensed Zoom account,

• Logitech BRIO webcam

• Microphone headset

• second monitor for my laptop

• A 19″ ring light.

Preparation:

• Hours researching and rehearsing how to create the best possible, user-friendly virtual learning experience.

• Beta Test: I gathered a group of 20+ volunteers for free Zoom classes in June, giving me practice and feedback.

I’ve since taught several online classes and a two-day Negative Painting Workshop which were very well-received. A student from my recent zoom workshop had this to say:

“When I started watercolor painting 5 months ago… I never dreamed I could produce something like this.  And u are absolutely right that learning to negative paint helps with all your painting! My work has been growing by leaps and bounds since I took your workshop. 

Thx again! ~Cathy R”

Janine has just two more online workshops scheduled for 2020. Click the links for more information, or email Janine at janine@janheltonartworks.com.
