***WE ARE OPENING A SECOND WEEKEND***

Join me in beautiful Castle Rock, Colorado on June 2-3, 2017 for a two day art workshop.

Our studio is light filled and surrounded by wooded property that lends itself to exploring, creating and relaxing.

You will have opportunities during the workshop to also make your way through some of our wooded paths and find a spot to create.

It is our heart’s desire that your time on our land and studio brings you rest and dreaming.

 

When you arrive on Friday morning you will be welcomed with mimosas and a light snack as we find our places and meet each other.

All main supplies will be provided for this workshop.

Our day will be filled with art prompts and techniques to help us all be present and connect with our worlds daily through our creativity. We will create our own journals using rust dyed fabric, watercolor paper, vintage ephemera, stitching and more. We will practice contour sketching and watercolor techniques, stamp carving and mark making to create abstract and realistic images.

Each day there will also be time spent in the beautiful land surrounding the studio including our lunch time in the garden.

At the end of day one I hope you will join me for dinner at one of my favorite local restaurants (this is not included) or explore our sweet town and find the perfect place to relax after a full day of creating.

Day two will be filled with more creating as we take some of our smaller works of art and create one larger abstract painting incorporating our painting, mark making, vintage ephemera and stitching.

You will leave this two day workshop with a journal full of your work, new possibilities in your art and hopefully a new eye to the ways you can connect more with the world around you.

Our time will end with cocktails and appetizers as we say our goodbyes.

While you are in the area we will make sure to point you in the right direction to all of our favorite restaurants, hiking spots and antique stores.

Our town has been ranked one of the best towns in America and we have to agree. I suggest you stay a few extra days to enjoy the beauty of Colorado!

Space is limited. If you have any questions please email us at contact@jeanneoliverdesigns.com.

You can register below or request an invoice.

Santos Cage Dolls II: Inspired Figures

Let’s dive into clay, plaster, wood, concrete and wire to make Santos and art dolls! If you’ve taken the first Santos dolls class, this class expands on earlier material and introduces new techniques,projects and doll forms!

We’ll make 2 traditional Santos dolls,one with a traditional cage base, and the other standing, and then head off into making art dolls inspired by nature and birds,such as “She takes flight”, “Wearing feathers and wire”,”Sunflower girl” and concrete mini-dolls for garden fairies. We’ll also make the easiest Santos doll ever using something completely unexpected!

We’ll use ordinary and accessible household items to make armatures and frames, and learn different facial sculpting techniques, and skills such as making molds of faces and heads, and casting in plaster to be able to recreate elements of our dolls so they can easily be reproduced. We’ll make wings from various materials and work with wire, wood, plaster, concrete, paint, wire mesh and more!
I love mixing all kinds of materials, and getting my hands dirty, and I am so excited to share this class and help open your inspiration and create with you

Come and Create With Danielle Donaldson {coming to Denver this summer}

I am so lucky to be surrounded by amazingly strong and creative women.

I guess luck doesn’t have anything to do with it.  I am picky and spend my time and energy building up healthy and loving relationships.

My life is sweeter, funnier, more creative and more sarcastic because Danielle Donaldson is in it!

If you live in the Denver area (or you want to come in for a nice weekend) you are in for a real treat because Danielle is coming to one of my favorite venues to teach a one day workshop.

Join Danielle for a special class designed just for us and based upon her brand new book coming out in July!

Reserve your spot (class size limited).

You can email me at contact@jeanneoliverdesigns.com and I can send you an invoice or you can pay below.

I can’t wait to join you in class!
