Janet Takahashi

March 17-19m 2017
Sketchbook Journaling

Location: Roth Jewish Community Center


    Janet will be with us very soon. She is a popular teacher at IAMPETH and those attending her workshops have the highest praise for her. Her combination of watercolor art (which she says can be done quickly) and calligraphy in her journals is stunning.  You can learn more about Janet in an interview by Joe Rotella who owns Create and Craft in Columbus, Ohio by visiting this link: &theater

     Janet has a wonderful book titled Artful Journals. Quoting from her About the Author she tells, “at about the age of eight she wanted to be a scientist after she illustrated the solar system. She majored in zoology and botany in college. After taking some art classes along the way, she realized art was her passion. She has mastered several forms of visual arts including calligraphy, illustration, bookbinding, sign painting, and gilding.  She has specialized in rare antique sign restoration for celebrities, upscale shopping centers, and major banking institutions. Janet teaches calligraphy and art at Santa Monica College/Emeritus College and continues to do private commissions and calligraphy for Crane & Co., Tiffany & Co., and Van Cleef and Arpels.”

A Sharp Pencil and a Keen Eye

March 16-18, 2018

After two years of trying, we have finally secured Amity Parks, noted calligrapher from Missoula, Montana. Amity travels extensively, teaching throughout the US and abroad.


We will be learning from her class titled A Sharp Pencil and a Keen Eye.  In this class, the humble pencil and its relatives become powerful tools in creating many effects from subtle to stunning.

We will use pencils, erasers, graphite sticks/blocks, powdered graphite and their water-soluble cousins to explore the possibilities of this medium for creating refined works of art to quickly made drawings in our sketchbooks.
