Jean Vadal Smith, Guest instructor

Jean Vadal Smith has been painting since she was 10 years old. Growing up in suburban Michigan amongst 8 brothers and sisters, her box of crayons and simple set of watercolors were her creative escape.

Now after more than 40 years of learning, creating and perfecting her craft, she takes great joy helping young children find their own creative sparks! She has studied under many great teachers and been showcased in galleries and private collections across the US, Canada, Europe, Australia and Costa Rica. She has been teaching children and adult classes in southern California for more than twenty years. After recently moving to Marin County, Jean currently keeps busy hosting an online gallery storefront at and teaching local children's classes through Mill Valley Parks and Recreation and Le Petit Jardin of San Anselmo.
