Lost and Found: An Art Class Coming To Denver

Good Morning!

I have another local art class that I get to share with you and that makes me giddy happy.

This allows local girls and even girls from out of town to attend at an amazing price.

I am honored to have been asked by Holly Kuhn of Old Glory Antiques to teach at the grand opening of their first Monthly Markets!

I will be there on Thursday shopping because most of the coolest things in my home are from Holly’s shop! She has an incredible eye and her aesthetics are second to none.  You will have time to shop a bit on Friday but I recommend if you are interested in really shopping to come the day before.

LOST AND FOUND: A PAINTING CLASS WITH JEANNE OLIVER

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 13TH  //  9:30 AM – 2:30 PM

 

LOST AND FOUND: CLASS DETAILS

“Not all who wander are lost.”  //  J.R.R. Tolkien

Creating art is a constant of adding and taking away, losing and finding yourself and discovering what you are really trying to say with your art. Join me for a one day class of creating as we add layers through paint, charcoal, mark making, acrylics and collage. We will work on two pieces at once to keep our creating loose and spontaneous. This class will incorporate how to create interesting backgrounds, break down how to draw a face or figure, mark making, and collage.

The fee is $125 per student, and students are responsible for providing their own supplies for the class. Here are the required materials:

-2 wood artist panels, canvas or cardboard (at least 6 x 12 but no bigger than 12 x 16)
-set of your favorite brushes (Jeanne likes #4 flat, #2 round, #0 round, fan brush and a large brush for applying gesso, matte medium, backgrounds, etc.)
-small set of acrylics (include your favorite colors AND black, white, a deep red, yellow ochre, raw umber fluid)
-black Stabilo pencil & charcoal pencil
-container for water
-Liquitex matte medium
-clear gesso & white gesso

I would LOVE to spend the day creating with you!

Just Dreaming About It Won’t Get You There

In the new year there can be long lists of dreams for the year and maybe even a yearly bucket list.  What I have found to be true is that me just dreaming about something has never led to the actual doing and experiencing.  If I want to learn something, go somewhere, spend time with […]

BECOMING-SCRIPTURE2-1_zpsda3389b8

While I was growing up I went to a Christian high school that gave out a “Christian Character Award” each year. I didn’t understand it even back then but I sure as heck knew I wasn’t going to get it. I always loved Jesus but I talked too much in class, doodled when I should […]
