***THE WINNER IS***

Lisa Noneman commented:

August 7, 2017 at 7:47 pm

I’ve been sharing my art supplies with a young girl who lives in my small town. She works at our library, very shy and reserved and we discovered each other through our love of art. I packed up a tote of all my favorite supplies and gave them to her to use and she comes to me often to show me what she makes. It touches my heart to see how grateful she has been and how eager she is to learn new mediums. It’s kind of like how I feel when Jeanne shares a video of her playing with art supplies in her classes, I get so excited!

 

Lisa, congratulations and we are so happy that you won. We hope you and the girl in your town will love the supplies.  Please contact us at contact@jeanneoliverdesigns.com and we will give you all the details.

**THIS GIVEAWAY EXPIRES ON AUGUST 24, 2017 IF THE PRIZE IS NOT CLAIMED**

 

It has been WAY TOO LONG since we had a giveaway!

With all of the new and beautiful courses launching we wanted to celebrate each teacher and each labor of love that they are bringing to life.

It is such an honor to collaborate with so many outstanding artists and teachers that help to create online courses that are RICH and AUTHENTIC!

So, I wanted to share what is going on RIGHT now on our site and share what you can join or even share with those around you.

 

Today we just launched the brand new online course Let Us Make with Sheila Atchley! Let Us Make is an artful, playful exploration of creation, theology and story as we rediscover them all in Genesis chapter one of the Bible. This course is for anyone who loves nature, art, and spirituality. Together we will play with techniques such as abstract flow art, botanical art, and expressive portraiture.  If you’ve ever wished you could have an excuse to spend more time outdoors; if you’ve ever wished you could gain some perspective on your own story, and come to know for sure why you are alive, this is the course for you.  All these things will be explored through art and scripture, in a safe, nonjudgmental and playful atmosphere. You can watch the course trailer HERE.

 

This week we opened early registration for Scribblepedia with Rae Missigman! Explore text based mark-making with its power to transform color and layers into deeply personal mixed media art. Define your creative art story letter by letter with text based mark making. Join author, artist and mark maker, Rae Missigman, as she guides you through the process of adding words, text and letters to deepen the impact of your mixed media pieces while interjecting them with your personal style. Create inspirational reference projects to quickly jump start your pieces and paint a colorful multilayered mixed media canvas where you leave a personal set of marks that define your work as uniquely yours. We will delve step by step into the process of layering, defining and marking in the wildly colorful style Rae has made so popular. You can view the course trailer HERE.

 

Early registration is about to end for Kate Thompson’s newest online course Fancy Lassies! The early registration price of $28 will end on August 12th and will go to $48.  In this class, you will be creating fanciful girls using watercolors, pastels, and acrylics. You will make little watercolor paper books where we will explore techniques, prints, and color. Downloadable templates are provided for you to practice the painting techniques. You will learn how to draw the girls and then transform them into fanciful creatures with very different personalities. You will learn how to draw a portrait using charcoal and then layer the charcoal drawing with watercolors and white acrylic paint. You can watch the course trailer HERE.

 

 

 

Paper Palettes | A Color Discovery Course is a mini course with Kelly Hoernig (instantly available) that has had INCREDIBLE feedback. Artists are saying that Kelly’s techniques for organizing ideas and color is changing how they approach their art and how they gather what is inspiring them. COLOR? Are you stuck in a rut? Are you confident about your choices when creating art? Want to experiment but not sure how to go about it? Want to be adventurous and step out of your color comfort zone? If you answered yes to one or all of the questions, this fun class will show you an exciting way to create a palette full of confidence! And guess what, you already have the supplies needed to get inspired. A couple of magazines you love, scissors, an adhesive (glue stick, tape) and some pages to glue to, that’s it! Excited already? I sure am! You can watch the course trailer HERE.

Art Supply Giveaway {to celebrate the launch of Letting Go: An Exploration in Abstract Painting}

***THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED***

The winner of the $250 Dick Blick gift card is…

Ginny Markley commented:

I am drawn to bright colors and abstract art because it is candy to the eyes…It is jewelry to a room…it is mark making at its best! Abstract art is more playful, intuitive, imaginative, and allows for more experimentation than realistic art. It is truly the vision of the artist’s minds eye!

Congratulations! Please contact us at contact@jeanneoliverdesigns.com before August 5, 2016 to claim your prize.

Good Morning! I am so tired this morning because we were up late coming home from seeing Adele! For real! Can you even believe it?!

The best part is that MONTHS ago Kelly was able to get us four tickets the moment they went on sale for $89 each!  He secured the tickets moments before the whole concert was sold out and we were in the nose bleed section but WE DIDN’T CARE!  She was magic. I don’t know if I have ever seen an artist perform better than on their albums. She is the real deal.

I will be on an Adele high for weeks now.

BUT…I better get back to the reason for this post!  TODAY launches the beginning of Letting Go: An Exploration In Abstract Painting with Wendy Brightbill. This course is truly stunning!

As soon as you register you have INSTANT access to the 5+ hours of content.

To celebrate the launch of the course we are giving away a $250 Dick Blick gift card so one of you can get some of Wendy’s favorite art supplies!

If you are interested in joining us in Letting Go: An Exploration In Abstract Painting here is a little bit of the details about the course…

In this course, we will listen to our intuition to create expressive abstract paintings. We will explore mediums and techniques that lend themselves to letting go and embracing the process of creating. We will be playing with watercolors, inks, acrylics and even embroidery. We will explore mark making, line drawing, shape composition and color blending to create depth and interest. We will gather inspiration for innovative color palettes because abstracts are all about color.

This course has 5+ hours of lifetime* access videos , all videos are pre-recorded for your convenience and the registration price is $46.

Hand Lettering Supply Giveaway!

**This giveaway is now closed**

The winner is…

This summer … I am gleefully gathering all the tools, knowledge & experiences I gave garnered these past couple years after my semi-forced 4 year hiatus from my art practice following my husband’s passing. I am so excited to finally feel my creative juices flowing once again … thanks in part to the many JO Creative Network Courses. Thank YOU Jeanne & Crew! I am most grateful.

Congratulations!  To claim your giveaway please contact us at contact@jeanneoliverdesigns.com.  All prizes must be claimed by June 24, 2016.

Today Advanced Hand Lettering begins and we wanted to do a giveaway to celebrate!

I know that when you want to learn a new technique it can be overwhelming and hard to know if you have chosen the right tools for the job.

Jen Wagner has pulled together her favorite tools for creating hand lettering projects and we would like to give the collection to one lucky winner.

If you are interested in joining us in Advanced Hand Lettering here is a little bit of the details about the course…

In Advanced Hand Lettering, we will dive into how to create beautiful lettering using multiple mediums (brush, calligraphy nib, brush pen, digital, waterbrush, and pen/pencil), from each individual letter to forming words, sentences, and adding decorative elements. We will also spend some time discussing composition, different styles, and how to make what you’ve envisioned a reality! Following the teaching portion of the course, you’ll have an opportunity to put what you’ve learned into practice with 7 fun projects (Lettered Globe, Wall Mural, Serving Tray, Yard/Event Signage, Large Poster, Gold Foil Lettered Pillow, & Digitized Poster). I’m so excited to really dive deep into the details of lettering with you!

This course has lifetime access* , all videos are pre-recorded for your convenience and the registration price is $48.

Our upcoming workshop in our new studio is SOLD OUT (thank you, thank you) and we want to celebrate that but also give a gift to one of you.

If you or someone you know could use this gift please email us at contact@jeanneoliverdesigns.com and tell us a little bit about the person you would like to see win this two day workshop on our new property.

This workshop is open to teenagers and older. If you know of someone that needs to be blessed with two days of creativity and exploring the story they have inside of them we would love to hear about them.

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.

My Handpicked Favorites From My Curated Joss and Main Sale! {last days to enter the giveaway too}

I hope you all had such an amazing Christmas!

We have spent days doing pretty much nothing but eating too much, playing games, hanging out with family and watch a ton of movies.

It has been wonderful and exactly what we needed.

Thank you for your response to my curated sale over at Joss and Main.

The whole sale is inspired by our home and style and we are so giddy about it!

For the next two days you can still see images of our home, read the interview with some of my decorating and lifestyle tips and also find products that compliment our style.

Thank you Joss and Main for being drawn to our “cozy, vintage, artsy” style.

As long as I can remember I have been drawn making home beautiful. The older I have gotten my heart has evolved to want home to be so much more that lovely to look at.

Home is now all about the people that live in this home and the people that will also come through the doors.

A home that is well lived in and well loved is so much more beautiful than a picture perfect space.

I hope that when you look at our photos that you see a space where art is made, music is played, books are read all cuddled up and people are loved. So loved.

Welcome to our curated sale!

I thought it would be so fun to show you some of the items in the sale that I handpicked to be included.

 To celebrate we would love to give away TWO complete packages of every course on our Creative Network!

We have over 50 free and paid for online courses available and each package is worth over $1500!

We have onlines courses about decorating, the holidays, hand lettering, doll making, mixed media, painting and so much more!

**The winners will be announced on December 29th and will have until January 10th to claim their giveaway item**
