Janet Greer has made nurturing creativity and curiosity part of her mantra for life. She has taught children and adults art and ceramics for many years in a variety of settings. She has an Master of Arts in Ceramic Arts from Hood College in Frederick, MD and is currently in their MFA program. Her art history studies have impacted her belief in the importance of art as a unifier in today’s society. Janet is a lifelong lover of all things creative. From a young age, making art became her emotional voice and source of empowerment. This continues with her today as she interacts with children, youth and adults alike. Her work is infused with reflections of family and the gift of nature we are blessed with as a human family. She hopes to inspire peace and celebrate unity amidst the chaos of today’s society.
She loves teaching at VisArts where she is able to continue exploring the endless possibilities Ceramics offers. She is a member of the Potter’s Guild of Frederick, where she displays and sells her work and serves as its President. Recently she taught Ceramics at Hood College. She and her husband Tim are the parents of 8 kids and 10 grandchildren.
