Jane Barton

Creative Sketchbook Journal


Friday & Saturday
 May 6 & 7, 2022
9:00 am - 4:00 pm




Art and travel have a lot in common: both offer opportunities to experience the excitement of the mysterious as well as the comfort to be found in collecting the familiar. Her own travel sketchbooks inspired her to teach others the joys of travel art. Jane has spent a lot of time in the last few years traveling the globe, experiencing new cultures, sights and ideas.  Painting constantly "en plein air" was the key to finding the information she needed to move from her early career as an award winning illustrator and graphic designer to her
beautiful studio work.



Jane studied at the American Academy of Art in Chicago, has a B.A. from Boston University and an M.A. in Illustration from Syracuse University School of Visual Arts.  Barton has lived in Arizona for over 40 years and loves the desert landscape, but lately travel has taken her to Greece, Italy, Scandinavia, Cuba and Iceland. Jane is a member of the Salmagundi Club, Oil Painters of America, American Impressionists Society, Laguna Plein Air Painters, and a Signature member of both the American Women Artists and Arizona Plein Air Painters.
