Women of Advent with Sheila Atchley | Early Registration Just Opened

 

We have a sweet surprise today! Sheila Atchley had such a desire to create something extra special for us this holiday season and she has brought to life The Women of Advent.

 

If the holiday season leaves you feeling a little scattered, you have come to the gathering-place. Come join a community of scattered-gathered hearts. Let’s slow down this season.

“Unfulfilled and fulfilled promise are related to each other, as are dawn and sunrise. Both are promise, and are in fact the same promise.” ~Karl Barth

The Women of Advent

Advent, in its simplest definition, means “to wait”. Each of us is waiting-with-an-ache for something; we are all waiting on a promise, on a dream to be fulfilled, waiting on a clean bill of health, a clear conscience, a mate, or a prodigal child to come home. To wait is to be human. To wait is to be. I want to unleash an army of women (and men) whose metric is grace. To wait is one thing – to wait with a well soul is THE one thing each of us needs most.

If you have ever wondered about the wonder of “Advent”, what it means, and who the season is for (hint: it isn’t just for the liturgical church!), this class is for you. If “the holidays” sometimes leave you feeling a little scattered, this class is for you. If your favorite thing to sketch or paint is faces, this class is for you. If your biggest nemesis is sketching or painting faces, this class is for you.

 

 

I’d love to invite you into a different experience this Advent. “The Women of Advent” offers four weeks of art instruction focused on sketching and painting the face. I will share some of my best tricks and tips with you! “The Women of Advent” also includes four weeks of soul-stirring devotional content, centered around the study of the four Old Testament women found in the genealogy of Christ.

All of it, art and devotional content, is designed to help you celebrate what I hope is the most meaningful Advent/Christmas season in recent memory.

So if the holiday season leaves you feeling a little scattered, you have come to the gathering-place. Come join a community of scattered-gathered hearts. Let’s slow down this season, and celebrate our Good…Great…Gathering God.

 

Come and watch the course trailer…

The early registration price for this one week course (4+ hours of content) is $28.00. You will have LIFETIME ACCESS* to the videos. This class will go live on November 20, 2017.

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

See you in class!

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

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!

An Action Packed Monday!

What a Monday we are having!

I am not even on my first cup of coffee and look what is already going on…

1. Week four of Studying Under The Masters III just launched and it is FULL of videos by artist Kelly Berkey!

This course has lifetime access and it is so full of content that you will be studying, learning, re-watching and growing as an artist for a long time.

2. My week with Life Book 2015 launched today!  I gave the the class tons of videos and loved creating for this year long, online, journaling course!    There is still time to sign up.

3. Even though it has been raining like crazy here in Colorado (I am not complaining though because I love the rain) I hear that it is acting like summer in other parts of the country:-)  Today is the first day of the Summer Tour of Homes 2015.  Our home will be featured later in the week but you will not want to miss this line up!

I would like to take this time to thank my Grandpa Benjamin, Grandpa Loran and Kenneth Oliver for serving our country and for making a day like today possible.  Thank you to all the men and women that serve and to all the families that sacrifice so much for our country. I think and pray for you often and no words are ever adequate.

If you like the crunch of leaves underfoot {peek into Woodland Girls}

It is way past my bedtime but I couldn’t go to bed without sharing my brand new art course that begins tomorrow (officially today).

Fall is my favorite time of the year because of the crispness in the air, the crunch of the leaves under foot, the bending of the golden grasses and the colors that are changing all around me.

Each fall I find a heightened sense of creativity and a pull into my studio unlike any other time of the year.

I think it is the gathering that fall brings.

Fall brings people around your table, leaves collected on walks, feathers pinned down in your journal, pine cones piled in a bowl on your table and long walks where your thoughts are more likely to wander.

Fall also brings me outside more to create and encourages my love of art with my love of nature.

Welcome to Woodland Girls {and other natural curiosities}! 

Below you will see a glimpse into the mini course content.

This course is a one week course that is instantly available.

The course will be instantly available on October 27th and the content will be available for one year.

The registration price is $30

I would love for you to hear what some of the students from the first course have said about the Masters course…

“In all my years as an artist, I have never had a course that stretched and grew me so much. Not only has my art taken off in so many exciting ways, but I was blessed with friendship and support I never expected. Thanks for all that you do. I am so looking forward to part two!”

-Renee

“The Studying the Masters class inspired me to look deeper into my own art process. The format where I was able to find out more about the artist’s process and their techniques captured my attention. The presenting artists were quality women whose own art process gave me confidence to keep going. I look forward to the next class.”

-Linda

***

“This course is one of the best I have taken in that it introduced me to several different modern day artists. In watching how they studied under some masters, I became a student of, not one, but TWO artists each week, some of whom I feel a real resonance with!! I feel as though I am finding more of my artistic voice as a result of this class, and that is pretty exciting!! Thanks so much Jeanne for helping me take another step closer to my dream! ”

-Silvia

***
“The best class ever no matter your talent level…seeing the instructors paint right along in  “their” style of painting trying to get close to what a Master created was so enlightening since each had awesome talent but different ways to get the final results that they wanted! We were in their studio with there favorite supplies, magic!”

-Tari
