Janet Schwartz

As a practicing artist and art workshop instructor, Janet uses pastels, oils, and charcoal to explore the variation of light in nature and architecture. She is particularly drawn to the chaos and unexpected beauty of urban landscapes, traffic and, more recently, ships and the shoreline. Janet brings a very personal and unique viewpoint to her work, which dramatically captures the mood of her emotionally-charged subjects.

She currently divides her time working in corporate training, teaching art, and creating and exhibiting her work throughout New England. Her workshops focus on the importance of value and composition in painting.

Janet has a B.A in Art Education, is a Master Pastelist of IAPS and a signature member of the PPSCC.
