Curriculum Vitae for Minaz Jantz

In the Curriculum Vitae, you will see an art education that is built up over years of attending private instructors, colleges, and art schools, to study and learn methods to the ongoing madness that challenges me as an artist and to keep pushing the comfort zones. 

Life + Art = Joy  
May you be creatively inspired!... Minaz Jantz

Starting in 2017 and continuing for 2018,  I created from scratch, the website, and the organization of Eastern Shore Creative Collective.

The idea, illustrations, website design and marketing plans for the one-day event Follow the Yellow Balloons were an idea that grew upon the need to bring artists & makers together giving each of us exposure within our neighborhoods for the one-day event and be searchable online with each creative being featured within the website. In 2018, I have also created Art 2 Follow Yellow Newsletter to keep updated with what is going on during the year to share the creative happenings on the Eastern Shore.
