ALL February Meeting to Feature Watercolor Artist Janice Castiglione

Calling watercolor painting her true passion, Castiglione finds the colors and flowing textures exciting. She enjoys a good challenge and remains determined to master a medium that many find to be the most difficult. The subjects of her paintings are typically found in the natural world. She has won many awards and was twice accepted into the Society of Illustrators Exhibit in New York City and published in their annual book. Now a Wilmington resident, she teaches watercolor classes and workshops at the Museum School at the Cameron Art Museum.  

Growing up in Western New York, Castiglione lived above her family’s tavern. Often bored, she would amuse herself by drawing for hours while sitting at the restaurant’s dining room table. She went on to earn a bachelor’s degree from Empire State College in Illustration and Graphic Design. While raising her family, Castiglione taught art classes and freelanced for companies like Random House, American Greetings and Modern Publishing. Later she joined Fisher Price and created the look of hundreds of Little People figures and play sets, including for Disney.
