It is with pleasure I introduce myself. My name is Janelle Howard. I have great interest in learning the many scopes of promoting and displaying the art gallery for Arts Visalia by having accepted the position of Gallery Director this March 29, 2017. My background is in the fine arts and graphic design, which I believe will be useful in the marketing of materials and artworks for the gallery and classes to the public.
I was born and raised in the city of Visalia, CA. I attended Golden West High School and graduated in 2003. I graduated from College of the Sequoias in 2005 with an Associate’s in Fine Art. In addition, I attended the prestigious Art Institute of California in Orange County and graduated in 2007 with a Bachelor’s in Graphic Design. Art is my passion and I love sharing it with others.
I have had the opportunity to work with many clients and peers in the field of the arts and have faced many obstacles and worn many hats in doing so. Arts Visalia has opened its doors to me and I am ready to embrace it and share my knowledge in the arts field, as well as, build upon my continuing education.
