Jan Bilancia Guarino, Fashion Illustration '75, paints cheerful watercolors and teaches painting at art leagues and libraries across Long Island as well as on leisure tours domestically and abroad. She came to teaching in 2014. She came to teaching in 2014 after the Art League of Long Island noticed her watercolor on the poetry page of Creations Magazine, a holistic wellness publication that she designs. Through her business, Guarino Graphics, she created logos and marketing materials for 30 years, but now she teaches almost every day. “To discover teaching at this stage of my life is more of a shock than anything.”
