If you have been wanting to create in person I have three opportunities coming up:

Coming together and creating one on one with other artists is one of my favorite things. I have three children at home and my heart is to be with them so it is only the most special studios and opportunities that bring me away from my own studio.

In person I am able to connect in a whole different way than online and we are able to work one on one on your art and even where you want your art to go. The intimacy that a live workshop offers is priceless to me and I hear that back from other artists also. It is always a growth experience for each artist teaching and the artists gathering together.

#1. This coming February I will be traveling to North Carolina to teach at the Donna Downey Studios! This is such a treat for me to be at Donna’s studio but to also be teaching along the East Coast! I know I get asked often to make my way to the East Coast so I hope this makes many of you happy!

THREE DAYS of us sketching, laughing, connecting, sculpting and going away filled up and ready to take what we have learned and discovered about ourselves and investing it into our own work. I love this part of live workshops!  I just walk away filled up and inspired in my own creativity! I hope you join me!

You can make payments (hello!) and start your 2017 with a creative gift for yourself! 

 

#2. Ever since I have been a little girl I have been a lover of history, architecture, art and I have ALWAYS known…I would travel. I am greatly driven by my desire to learn, explore and to discover more of this world. My family makes choices all of the time that will make it possible for us to travel more and to have less of other things. We want to collect adventures and memories and not just things.  For all of you lovers of adventure, history, art and travel…this is for you! Join me in April 2017 for The Living Studio Along The Seine!   Imagine exploring and creating in France!

 

#3. Cobblestone walkways, candlelight dinners with pasta that melts in your mouth, hikes to castle ruins with Lake Como and the prealps as your backdrop, dips in the pool, rides around Lake Como in a vintage motor boat, the smell of Jasmine as you walk throughout the village, the best espresso of your life as you take a break in the afternoon and watch the locals, late afternoon showers that cool the village down and the breeze blows through your apartment window and evenings of good food, laughter and wine glasses raised high.  Did I mention we make art too! Bellagio, Italy is truly one of my favorite places on earth because it is slow and inviting, the village embraces you like no place I have ever been, the beauty is hard to even wrap your head and heart around and your whole pace comes to a halt as you just enjoy the simplest and most beautiful parts of life.  To come to Bellagio, Italy and to explore and create is one of the greatest gifts I have ever given myself.  I know that if you give yourself the gift of Italy that you will feel the same wa

It is my honor to have been invited back by Laura McCollough to teach again (this will be my fourth time) at her truly luxury Art & Faith Creative Retreat.  This year my good friend Stephanie Ackerman and I will be back together to teach art when we are not off exploring Bellagio and the surrounding villages.

Come and hear some of the details.  REGISTRATION IS OPEN FOR THE JUNE 24 – JULY 1ST, 2017 ART & FAITH CREATIVE RETREAT!

 

Whether online or in person I look forward to creating along side you in 2017!

The winner of the $350 Dick Blick gift card is…

flutterbyebarn commented:

I’m taking Reflections: Paint your story. I’m scared and I’m ecstatic!!! I’ve done all kinds of art since I can remember, here and there. I have NEVER journaled. ? I am at such a point at my life where I can’t believe I was bold enough to think I had a story to tell. But I believe you, when you say it. And I desperately need to find my real voice and my artistic voice, so here I am. I know I will find it through art. Thank you for being so real and honest and encouraging. I can’t wait!!!!! ???????

Congratulations!  To claim your gift card please email us at contact@jeanneoliverdesigns.com.

This giveaway has to be claimed by February 1, 2016.

******

2016 is barely out of the gates and we have so many gorgeous new online courses for you!

We have four brand new art courses that are starting soon or they have just been opened for registration.

To celebrate we are also giving away one $350 Dick Blick Gift Card!  Read to the bottom to see how to enter.

Come and see what we have for you…

You can also see the course trailer below…

 

Beginning January 18th is our first online art journaling course all about finding your own authentic story.

Reflections: Paint Your Story

Join me for a two week art journaling online course all about unraveling your own story and creating authentic art that only you can tell.

When I started to see my own stories as being meaningful and significant my art began to change.  When I could look back and find my own timeline and defining moments I was able to start digging deeper as an artist and my creating became more of a time of remembering, honoring, forgiving, healing and celebrating.  It made me more intentional about where I wanted to go creatively and how I wanted to share it.

If you think your story isn’t good enough…you are mistaken.

If you are afraid to tell your story…maybe it is time to find freedom

If you have never told your story…it is time.

If you want to create authentic art that no one else can create…let’s get started.

This two week online course is $48 with lifetime* access.

Beginning on February 15th is a follow up to the popular Scribble Art with Julie Johnson.

Making Art Sing: Values, Shapes and Lines

I have found wonderful and new techniques in my studio this fall.  We are not going to lose the basics of drawing. Learning the measuring is important in drawing.  But how about drawing on vellum and painting with drawing materials!  Really we use only a wet brush.  Fun and more fun!   Join me, as we get lost in learning about drawing.   I love to talk and explain my purpose for doing something as you watch from my shoulder.  Yes, you are that close up in seeing the marks and strokes I am making while I demo and video from a vertical easel.

This one week online course has recently opened for registration and has the early registration price of $29.98 with lifetime* access.

 

 

 

Registration has just opened for Danielle Donaldson’s newest watercolor course All Creatives Lovely and Small!

This course will begin on March 14th.

Ellies, pups and bunnies, oh my! One whole week of online creative goodness! We will start off our week with a good dose of danielle-ish color theory. This isn’t your everyday color-wheel stuff. As a matter of fact, it is kind of the opposite. You’ll learn how to work with color in a whole new way. You’ll find your very own colorful voice with a series of simple exercises that will not only build your creative signature but seriously boost your watercolor confidence. Next we’ll pick up our mechanical pencils and illustrate some quirky and goodness-filled animal friends. You’ll learn how to break down their bits and pieces and then reassemble them in a bunch of different ways. And then we’ll add soft, yummy layers of color and delicate details. We’ll wrap up our week by building a lovely, layered block of patterned paper, snippets of ribbon and a word or two to give our four-legged friend a place to perch.

This one week course has the current early registration price of $32 with lifetime* access.

 

 

Registration has opened for Elements of Clay with Alissa Millsap!

This course will begin on February 29th.

Do you have childhood memories of making mud pies or building sandcastles?

Maybe you loved creating something out of playdoh, wishing you could keep them forever?

In Elements of clay, I will be showing you several projects using air-dry paper clay.

No kiln needed!

Each project is inspired by nature, as well as the hope of new beginnings that come in the spring. Each project has a bohemian flair and style. I doesn’t matter if you worked with clay before or have never experienced creating a sculpture, it is my wish that you will be inspired to try something new. I hope you will join me on this journey as we explore the elements of clay.
