ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: My Name is Jen, I was born and raised in Charlevoix. I have never considered myself an artist. I have always loved art, but never thought I had the skill set to create beautiful work. My Brother was an awesome artist & could draw anything. I was always so envious of his talents. I was crafty and was super excited to live in a crafty world. In College, I had to take one art class, part of the General Education Program. I took Photography, because I thought anyone can take a picture and it is a good life skill. I loved being in the art department, I found myself doing my homework in the halls because I loved the smell of all the art supplies. My photography professor saw my interest in art and pushed me into more classes; I resisted. Turns out I did have a talent for art I just needed guidance. It was not something I could just do, I needed support and direction. With a little help, I was off and running and ended up taking so many art classes I left college with a double minor in art. Even with my degree I still never dove into painting, it was my last fear of art I needed to conquer. About 3 years ago, I took a leap toward overcoming that last fear and I took a painting class. I picked up a brush and have not put it down since. I thoroughly enjoy watching people work through their hesitation or fear of picking up that brush and realizing they just painted something amazing.
