Jan Godachy joins us in May to demonstrate in our monthly meeting and to offer a one-day workshop.
About Jan Godachy:
I am a self-taught artist, practicing watercolor for almost 20 years. By that I mean no formal art school, however I’ve taken lots of workshops and see a lifetime of learning with this media. I worked for Qantas Airways & Singapore Airlines for 30 years, which enabled me to take great photos of the places I’ve been.
Once they outsourced me I became the Gallery Manager at the National Watercolor Society in San Pedro for six years. I had the privilege of viewing and meeting some of the top watercolorists in the world.
I now teach watercolor on Mondays and Thursdays for the City of El Segundo’s Recreation Department and have come to find that I love teaching.
I’ve won numerous awards on a local level in Pacific Art Guild, El Segundo Art Association, Torrance Art Guild, and the South Bay Watercolor Society, (including two Best of Show). I am currently the “Artist of the Year” for Four years in a row at the Pacific Art Guild. On a national level: I’ve been accepted into juried shows; CA-101, Torrance Art Museum, the Museum of San Luis Obispo, the City of Los Angeles Bridge gallery, the National Watercolor Society and Watercolor West.
I paint atmospheric, representational style and plan all my vacations centered around learning plein air and taking workshops from master watercolor artists. Watercolor keeps me humble.
