Fancy Lassies with Kate Thompson Begins on Monday! | We Have a Sneak Peek

***Monday morning Kate Thompson’s brand new online course Fancy Lassies will begin***

Kate Thompson is back on our creative network! We are so fortunate to gather some of the most incredible artists around and we are honored to have Kate back and this time teaching how to make her whimsical girls!

Kate is one of the most extraordinary artists that I know and I have no doubt that you will leave this course with so many new ideas that you can incorporate into your own art!

Come and take a sneak peek into Kate’s new course…

 

Fancy Lassies with Kate Thompson |

In this class, we will be creating fanciful girls using watercolors, pastels, and acrylics. These girls are created in a somewhat whimsical way but with some understanding of a more realistic approach. There will be exercises in creating a more realistic portrait which we will then use and abstract to something more fanciful.

I will show you how to make little watercolor paper books where we will explore techniques, prints and color ways. This will be a wonderful record to rely on as we work on more finished pieces.

I will then guide you as you start working on your own girls. I do have templates to download for you to practice the painting techniques. I then demonstrate how to draw the girls that we will then transform into fanciful creatures with very different personalities.

I demonstrate how to draw a portrait using charcoal. I then layer the charcoal drawing with watercolors and white acrylic paint. We will then paint watercolor and acrylic roses to garnish her face.

Supplies:

Watercolor paper, watercolors, paintbrushes, acrylic paints, milk paint, matte medium, gesso, charcoal, stabilo, mechanical pencil

Art Journal It Out | Early Registration Just Launched!

Carrying my artist’s journal around with me wherever I go and finding new ways to capture and tell the stories that surround me has become one of my sweetest art journeys. Art journaling has given me a fun and easy way to PRACTICE and in turn, change my art. I am honored to tell you that art journaling artist Brittany Soucy has created an art journaling course just for us! Welcome to the early registration of Art Journal It Out!

 

Art Journal It Out

In this course, we will be art journaling.  I will be using a plethora of art supplies and explain how I use these supplies while discussing composition and mixed media techniques. I will demonstrate some portraiture and will teach you different ways I approach this in my art
journal. We will work on several spreads so you can try different styles and find new ways of growing your art skills.

We will go into each spread by layering handwriting with paint and gesso.  We will build upon those layers with mixed media and adhering paper and ephemera.  Then we will add a focal point and find a way to express a thought or feeling through your journaling. You will learn new
skills while creating something you love.

Try whatever you want – this is for YOU!   Make a mess, paint or cover up what you don’t like.

When you’re stuck, art journaling sets you free.  You open yourself up and let your frustrations go.  You gift yourself the joy of experimentation.  You discover that you have something to say and you open your heart.

 

 

Meet Brittany Soucy!

 

I live on the seacoast of New Hampshire. (Yes, that exists and it’s beautiful.) I’m grateful that all I have to do is walk across the yard to go to work in my 200 year old barn-studio. It’s like the dream of my childhood and the wish of my heart have come true.

I make art because it has always felt like a natural way to process my world. I find myself searching for beauty and craving to find interesting and nourishing ways to express it. I am captivated by light and how its warmth, healing, and truth illuminate everything it touches.

I believe that setting aside time for making and appreciating art is an act of self-care. I now understand that the process of art making is an important balm that propels us toward healing. When I was younger I worried that being creative and artistic was a useless talent to have, but now I consider it both a pleasure and a sacred responsibility.

Final Peek Into Let Us Make | It Will Begin On Monday!

Let Us Make with Sheila Atchley will begin on Monday, August 7th!

One of my dearest friends in the world is my beautiful friend Sheila Atchley. In my life, she is trusted and true and one of the wisest people I know. She is a straight talker, deep thinker and creative soul that longs for truth and beautiful conversation.

It is with deep joy that I share that we are offering Sheila’s first online course, Let Us Make!

Let Us Make!

An artful, playful exploration of creation, purpose, theology, and story, as we rediscover them all in Genesis chapter 1 of the Bible.
Even though we are taking our text from the Bible, you do not have to be a Christian to take this course. 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. We will try our hand at painting things that fly and things that swim, and we will “paint with light” at least two or three different ways.

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, even playful atmosphere. I’m excited for you to join me in “Let Us Make”.

COME AND WATCH THE UPDATED COURSE TRAILER…

 

Let Us Make will begin on August 7th, have 4+ hours of content and lifetime* access. The registration price is $48.

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

See you in class!

Ordered Chaos with Dina Wakley Begins on Monday!

 

Dina Wakley will be teaching on our creative network and her course Ordered Chaos will begin on Monday!

If you had a chance to take the FREE Living Studio online video with Dina you get just a taste of how fun, easy to follow and colorful her art is.  You can’t leave time with Dina and not want to have your hands covered in creativity! If you did not have a chance to create the journals with Dina I hope you make time this week. The series is free and her art video is so fun!

 

 

Ordered Chaos with Dina Wakley:

I love the power of a single line. One line can tell a story, express emotion. I also love the collected power of many lines, many colors, many marks. I know, though, that our lines and colors and marks often get away from us. We over-do it, or we don’t know when to stop.

Over the years, I’ve realized that while my work is free, organic, and chaotic, there are actually specific things I do to control and tame the chaos. These control tactics help me make a loose, organic statement but in a way that is accessible. I often call my work “ordered chaos.” It looks free, and it is. It looks chaotic, and it is. But it also plays by some rules. In this class we will play and explore the ways to create chaos, and then play with the rules that I use to corral it into submission.

 

 

 

 

 

We will work both large and small, starting in journals and small sheets of paper. Then we’ll turn to large pieces of paper (or canvas, if you
wish) and created ordered chaos on a grand scale. We’ll do both figurative and abstract works. If I can do it, you can do it.

Ready to make a mess with me?

You can watch the course trailer below:

 

Ordered Chaos will begin on May 8th, have 4 hours of content and lifetime* access. The registration price is $48.

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

See you in class!
