Who Are They Studying Under?

Good morning!

I am so thrilled about your excitement over Studying Under The Masters {becoming an apprentice}!

For those of you that have registered (and those of you that may be hearing about it for the first time) I wanted to share WHO the teachers will be studying under.

First of all I want to say that having these eight incredible artists join me on this creative journey is humbling.

I adore each of these women for their creativity and many I am personal friends with and adore who they are to the core.

If you had the opportunity to learn from just one of them it would be an experience that would grow your creativity.

To take a course that includes all of them …get ready for something beautiful to come out of you!

Let’s look at the masters that each of the nine artists will be studying under…

Do you want to know more about the course?

The course begins January 14th.

There is a lost art of studying the works of others to find your own style.

All of the “masters” were first apprentices and were given the freedom to find their creative voice by literally sitting next to those who inspired them.

The apprentice sat beside them, listening to their descriptions of process, picking up their paintbrush and mixing their paint, creating a series of strokes that created something that told a story, and stirred their creative spirit.

And, with practice, the apprentice became a master in their own right – mixing together the old and the new.

Somewhere, over the course of time (and certainly with current social media) we have lost sight of openly emulating those who inspire us most.

Have you ever taken an online course, gone to a retreat, purchased an art technique book and were taught an artist’s techniques and mediums?

Have you ever been worried about what is your style and what is “their” style?

Have you ever been afraid to create art that was inspired by another artist?  This course is for you!

I want to offer a course that gives you some of the most amazing artists in history and how each of us can learn from them.

And that openly learning from them is a good thing.

 Join nine artists as we become the “apprentice”.

We will share how we became a modern-day apprentice to those who came before us and those who work beside us now.

Through discussion and technique videos, each artist will share their week with a “master” as if they are sitting next to them.

You’ll learn who their “master” artist studied under, who influenced their work and what techniques and mediums they used.

 An integral part of the artistic process was to “copy” the master artist until the apprentice could confidently integrate pieces of it into their own creative process.

In this course, you will watch as these artists “copy” the works of another artist.

You will then learn as they create art in their own style incorporating the techniques and/or medium of their chosen artist.

My hope is that you will leave this course with freedom in your creativity.

Freedom to pull from everything around you that inspires you and how to incorporate it into your art.

The confidence to realize that nothing is new under the sun and how to build upon others that have come before you.

The courage to share who inspires your creative works.

And most importantly, to know that we all learn in the same way.

This is the Art of Practicing.

Michelle Mathey – POMI commented:

 

This IS the class that I’ve been waiting for and didn’t even know it – I always question what part of my creations are “me” and what part are influenced by the works of others. Can’t wait to learn more as an apprentice to your 9 artists.
As a younger person I didn’t “get” Picasso at all but now am totally amazed at his artistry and vision. He is one of my favorite artists, for sure!

Congratulations!

Please email me at jeanneoliverdesigns@gmail.com and we will get you the gift card.

The New Collection Has Arrived!

The Gathering Collection has arrived!

We hope you love the beautiful fabrics (both vintage and new) that we have used.

I am especially excited about the special embroidery work that we have included in this collection.

With my love of France and especially the embroidery that can be found on the vintage French linens…I am giddy to see this special touch on many of our bags.

All of the bags have been added and we will be adding the vintage items and embroidered cuffs throughout the day.

Enjoy and thank you for your excitement about our collections.

I will never be able to express what a joy it is to bring a collection together and for you to connect with it.

Thank you for being such a sweet part of our lives!
