Join the U.S. Lighthouse Society for an exciting new event — a virtual watercolor painting class with artist Jan Guarino! The event is on April 28 at 3:00-5:00 p.m. EST. The subject of the lighthouse painting class will be Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse in Florida.
Jan Guarino is an award-winning artist living in New York, and she shares her knowledge in classes and workshops. Her work has been exhibited in many galleries and she is a permanent artist at the Firelyfly Gallery in Northport, New York. You can see much of Jan’s work on her website at janguarinofineart.com.
This class will be an approximately two-hour Zoom event. When you buy your ticket, you will receive a Zoom link. Participants will also receive a separate email from artist Jan Guarino with a list of supplies you’ll want to get for a successful watercolor, along with the photo that will be the model for the painting.
During the Zoom class, Jan will take you through every step as you paint along. Josh Liller, historian for Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum, will be on hand to discuss the historic light station. When the class is over, you will receive the recording to view again if you wish.
