Janet Olney teaches drawing and painting at HCC and at MICA. She received her MFA from the LeRoy E. Hoffberger School of Painting at MICA. Janet attended a residency at the Chautauqua School of Art Studio Program and taught at MICA’s Summer Studio Intensive Program in Brooklyn. As the recipient of the Henry Walters Travelling Fellowship, she studied painting in Japan. Her work has been featured in exhibitions in Baltimore, New York, Boston and throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.
