Jan Halvorsen

Jan Halvorsen grew up in Oregon, on both sides of the Cascades. She has always been a painter, starting young when she drew maps and cities on her bedroom floor (left uncarpeted by her very smart mother) and illustrated her sister’s stories. Jan graduated from the University of Oregon with a BFA in printmaking where her primary medium was lithography. Lithography allowed a focus on what she really loves to do... drawing. The collaborative culture of the printmaking studio was also a valuable experience. After several years working in graphic design, illustration, and video/film production, Jan taught in the Media Arts program at LCC from 1999 to 2022.

While at LCC, she developed and taught classes in media design, drawing, and animation. Many of her students were more comfortable with cameras and computers than drawing tools: “I learned a lot from my students about how to manage expectations of creativity and technique. Deep learning is experiential: The more senses you engage, the better. This is why direct work with materials and processes is so important! I believe everyone is born with imagination. With encouragement and practice, anyone can build confidence and positive habits to have a rich creative life.”

Terry Duffy

Terry Duffy studied studio art and art eduction in college and later went back to school to study graphic design. She worked as a designer for 32 years, while doing her own art on the side—trying out all kinds of different media along the way. About five years ago she made watercolor her primary medium, allowing her to work loosely with the ability to have complex layering in her paintings. Terry has been teaching at Oregon Art Supply since 2012. She teaches drawing, colored pencil, and watercolor, offering both beginning classes and more advanced classes for each medium. Her first goal is to teach foundational skills to students so that they have the tools to feel successful and stay engaged. Secondly, and more importantly, she encourages them to find their way through the medium to develop their own style. She finds that creating a supportive environment is key, because it gives students the freedom to explore and to become confident about their artwork. "It’s exciting to see students develop skills and ways of expressing themselves that maybe they haven’t considered before.

Zoë Cohen

Zoë Cohen, contemporary abstract painter, has been teaching at Oregon Art Supply since 2015.

She gradated with a BFA from University of Oregon in 1985 and has exhibited her work in Oregon, Washington, California, New Mexico and New York. Zoë’s favorite thing about teaching is meeting new people and helping to foster their creative process.
