Welcome to Paint Is Thicker Than Water!  


Hi, my name is Jennyann Carthern. I'm an Illustrator, Teaching Artist, and Speaker, sowing radical seeds in the Arts and Integrated Learning one day at a time. 

I've been an Artist for as long as I can remember and a Teaching Artist for over 12+ years in nonprofits and after-school programs throughout Solano County and the SF Bay Area, along with a BFA in Illustration from the California College of the Arts. 

At Paint is Thicker Than Water I'm committed to making the Arts accessible to everyone! I believe that Children, Teens, and Adults should have the opportunity to experience all the rewarding outcomes that Art has to offer! These outcomes include increased confidence, motivation, self-actualization, hope, wellness, fun, social change and a reduction in anxiety! 

I'm also committed to providing quality tools and solutions for learning and engaging youth in the arts for After School Programs, Teaching Artists, and Educators, through workshops, retreats and professional development.
