November Members Meeting and Demonstration - 11/12/2018, 1:30 pm
Please join us for a critique of member art work by WASH founder Jan Miskulin. Jan is primarily an on-location painter who uses her love of nature to inspire her reactions to her surroundings with interpretive feelings and spiritual vitality.
She studied Japanese sumi-e brushwork at an early age using the free-brush technique typical to this form of painting. Jan is an advocate of strong values in her painting along with meaningful brush work.
Jan received her MFA from Stanford University and has studied at UC Berkeley and the University of Guadalajara in Mexico. Her work has been displayed in many one-artist shows, and she is represented in private and corporate collections internationally. She has received top awards in many local and international shows.
In 1978 Jan Miskulin and Nancy Haley discussed the need for a watercolor society. Jan's watercolor class enthusiastically endorsed the idea. The group formed and met at the President James Monroe Manor and Jan Miskulin was elected as the first President of WASH. Jan is still active in WASH and currently is helping other artists through coaching sessions.
