We Are Opening Up a Second Weekend | Live BE PRESENT Workshop In Our Studio!

bepresentflyersecondweekend
***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.

Hold Your Horses People!

I may be the only one in blogland without their Christmas tree up, advent wreaths ready to go and their Christmas cards addressed and ready to ship.

I just can’t!

I love Thanksgiving.

What is not to love?

Come on…you have family, good food, no gifts, time together, long walks, bonfires and more food.

These will be the memories my kids remember.

These are the memories we are making together.

Thanksgiving to me is the calm before the Christmas storm that I don’t like to play along with.

Thanksgiving is about intentional thinking.

Intentional slowing down.

At least it feels like that to me.

I love asking everyone what they love the most and then making that come true for them.

I will cook anything if that is what they want.

I don’t do that very often so it is a treat for them and a joy for me.

A house full of people you love, music, cooking and good smells sounds about perfect to me.

I encourage you to be present in whatever season it is.

This is about the holidays, life, children, job, creativity.

Just be present.

Good things happen when we slow down enough to enjoy the season we are in.

It all goes fast enough anyways.

Here are some images I have loved lately on Pinterest that I think you will love too.
