Julia Holmaas

For several years Monday Night Watercolor at the Art Barn has been taught by this versatile artist. Before becoming an instructor Julia benefited from being at many Art Barn workshops and classes over the years. Painting in both watercolor and oil, Holmaas has won numerous awards for her work.

Julia’s goal as a teacher to help others learn the basics of painting – using line, color and shape to capture a three dimensional reality in a two dimensional space.  

She is a member of the Area Artists Association, the Chesterton Art Center, and the Southern Shore Art Association of Michigan City. She is active in the Duneland Plein Air Painters and teaches seminars for the Michigan City Art League.




Claire A. Reed


Claire Reed is a full-time, professional artist who has been working out of her art studio in Chicago since 2013. Born and raised in Valparaiso, Indiana, she was surrounded by nothing but corn fields and the Indiana Dunes. Growing up her biggest influence came from Christian Riese Lassen, a renowned painter.

Later on in high school she was presented the rare opportunity to scuba dive and study marine biology in the Florida Keys. She continued to study at the American Academy of Art and is expected to graduate with a degree in Bachelor of Fine Art with a specialization in watercolor.
