Janet's classes cater to anyone looking to explore their creativity, from the absolute beginner to the most advanced artist.
At the studio, she teaches all mediums including oil, acrylic, pastel, watercolour and drawing. Students are taught on an individual level focusing on what they wish to learn, therefore there is no set structure to classes. There are a maximum of 8 students per class.
Classes are held in a friendly and relaxed small group environment. A beginner may choose to use the studio's equipment until you purchase your own materials - this consists of paints, brushes, pastels, etc, at an extra cost.
Classes are held in Janet's studio gallery at 93 Princes Highway, Werribee (corner of Princes Highway and Vera Street). The studio entrance is situated on Vera Street. Adequate street and off-street parking is available.
IMPORTANT: If you miss a class you will have the opportunity to make up the class in the same term on another day.
One class per week for 7 weeks: Choose Morning or Evening class. Morning classes run for 3 hours at a time and cost $230.00 to attend 1 class per week for 7 weeks. Evening classes run for 2 hours at a time and cost $200.00 to attend 1 class per week for 7 weeks.

Vendor since 2015
Janet is an established Melbourne based professional artist with works secured by international and Australian collectors. With painting experience of over 25 years, Janet graduated from Ballarat University with a Diploma of Art, majoring in graphic design.
Janet’s current works are an indication of her dedication to her passion and her field. Her landscapes are a combination of a connection with nature and Janet’s unique personal application suggests a surreal twist in the final product.
Figurative studies and portraits are an additional love with the expectation that a painting should be felt as well as viewed and appreciated.
Janet has successfully held numerous solo and shared exhibitions and participates in community exhibitions throughout the year. Her well established classes and workshops keep her busy most of the time and organisation allows time to also keep up with commission pieces as well as working on her own pieces.
Janet has just completed filming a second episode of Colour In Your Life and as a recent feature artist on the TV program, her work now gets recognition internationally as well as in Australia with the show now airing in many countries.
The host and creator of Colour In Your Life Graeme Stevenson, also an established and professional artist, quoted “Painting the Australian landscape is something that Janet has mastered in more ways than one. Her bush and stream scenes allow the viewer to melt into her paintings and her ability as a teacher enables many other people to be able to get in touch with their right brain creativity.”
Janet has won many awards and is a well-respected judge of exhibitions in her local community. As a teacher she shares her knowledge with others in her home studio gallery.
