Jeannette Corbett has lived in Reading for over 45 years with her family. She has a Master's
Degree in Special Education and has taught for 25 years in North Shore communities. She
has always loved to sketch and paint, especially as a teenager and college student working
at performances. She loved to incorporate artwork and music with her student' learning. .
After retiring, Jeannette concentrated on taking watercolor art courses and seminars
with Cape Ann artists, such as Paul George, Betty Lou Schlemm, and Tom Sutherland.
Jeannette enjoys traveling , especially to Italy and France, and paints landscapes in oils
and watercolors of hill towns in Tuscany. After 40 years of going to horse auctions and
racetracks in Lexington, Kentucky and Saratoga, NY , she finally put those hours to good
use and loves to paint the beauty of thoroughbreds in motion, making the turn and
heading for the finish line, manes flowing and brave jockeys with strident colors!
Mrs. Corbett has won over 55 awards, including 3 Best of Shows, and exhibits frequently in
the North Shore area. She is the current president of the Reading Art Association.
Jeannette Corbett is a very unique painter. It was with great delight to observe
her versatile technique as she painted a "scene in Venice" in watercolor.
She arrived with a beautiful painting of race horses which she donated to
Everett Arts. It was raffled off at our meeting of October 18th and the
proceeds donated to EAA. Thank you Jeannette.
The winner, Helen Scoppettuolo, is shown with the painting and artist
