Back in February I was having dinner with a few good friends in California and I couldn’t keep my eyes off one of my friend’s necklaces! It was exquisite, interesting and a work of art. It had been wrapped a few times around her neck to make it shorter and she quickly took it off so I could examine it. The whole piece was full of intricate attention to detail. We were even able to wrap it around our wrists and create the most beautiful wrap bracelet.

Well, I tracked this jewelry artist down and I am excited to tell you that Eclectic Beaded Crochet Jewelry with Robin Dudley-Howes is begins on Monday!

On trend and so boho chic, learn Robin’s method to make these stylish crochet beaded wraps, NO crochet experience necessary! These fun pieces can be wrapped several times around the wrist or be worn as a necklace.

In this course Robin will show you step by step how to make simple to elaborate crocheted jewelry. She will also have some fun bonus material on how to make your own one of a kind pendants, tassels and charms to add to your crochet jewelry.

This course is for everyone! The first few videos will go over supplies, tools and the thought process of choosing what to use for your wraps. Robin will show you step by step the basic chain stitch, which is the foundation for all of the jewelry in this course and great practice for those who have never crocheted. Once you have that down you’re ready to move on to a one wrap, one bead bracelet. The next project will be how to make her popular mixed bead wraps using several sizes of beads, fiber and findings as well as her signature “bridge” stitch. From there she will show you how to add chain and different types of connectors and as a bonus you will also learn how to make one of a kind heart with wings charm and tassels. Once you get the hang of making these wraps, you’ll be addicted!

The registration for this one week course (4+ hours of content) with lifetime* access is $42.

One of our most popular courses has been the Studying Under the Masters series. When homeschool teacher, online course creator and public speaker Alicia Hutchinson suggested we bring the course to KIDS I was thrilled!

Studying Under the Masters for KIDS is a class that my children and I have been anxiously awaiting to begin and we are so excited to make this course a part of our next few months.

For children, art isn’t about rules and critiques. Art for kids is about expression and creating and fun! Creating art with kids is like opening the most fantastic Pandora ’s Box of possibilities. You never know how they will express themselves through art. Going back years and years to some of the most beloved Masters of art is a great way to intrigue children about different forms of art, different styles and different mediums. When young people used to aspire to be artists, they would take on the apprenticeship role under Masters of art. I want your kids (and you!) to come along with me and become apprentices to some of art’s Masters!

Studying Under the Masters for Kids was created to teach children about art, history, techniques, and how to learn from and be inspired by great artists. In this three-week course, we will visit three artists who created art in different time periods and places on the map.

 

We’ll go to Japan and learn from Katsushika Hokusai and his use of woodblock prints, how he could magically capture the movement of water, and study his beautiful landscapes.

We’ll travel to Switzerland and study about Paul Klee. We’ll learn from his love of color theory, mixing mediums, and how his geometric shapes took on fluid movement.

And we’ll explore Austria and the great Gustav Klimt. We’ll study his most famous paintings, learn about his love of shapes and mosaics, and how one of his favorite mediums to work with was quite extravagant!

Each week, you’ll learn about a different artist. A video will introduce the artist, show many pieces of art by him, and we’ll learn some interesting trivia along the way too. After we’ve learned a bit about the Master, you’ll watch another video about that artist’s famed technique—printing, watercolors, mosaics, and more. When your child has gotten a grasp for the techniques we’ll move into the fun stuff—the projects! We’ll create lots of beautiful pieces of art inspired by our teachers—art to hang on the wall, to decorate with and even to wear!

Ways To Use this Course:

  • Invite the kid’s friends over and have an “Art Week.” Choose one of the artists and create art all week with your friends!
  • Use as a unit study. Check out books from the library, go online and watch videos and fully immerse yourself into the life of the great artist. When you’re creating art like him, you’ll have such a personal experience!
  • Use in your homeschool for a month or more of art classes.
  • Create a wonderful one-on-one time with your art-loving child and create art together—make it a special date!

 

Who is this Course for?

Art should be enjoyed at all ages, but because this course goes pretty in-depth about the lives of artists and their specific techniques, it’s probably geared more towards older kids. My suggestion would be ages 7-12. We will be using supplies at times that won’t be suitable for little, tiny hands. If you have younger kids, you can always get them their own box of art supplies and they can create with their own supplies near you. Having both boys and girls myself, I try to be sensitive to not making our art projects too girlie. I was conscious of this when creating this course and it is definitely suitable for boys and girls alike. There is one project where we will be creating jewelry, but this would be a great gift for Mama or your son could make a more “masculine” version of the project.

What will I get with this course?

When you sign up to take this course, you’ll be receiving lifetime access to all the video content—over 7 hours. You’ll get a Student Notebook with information about each artist, spaces to take notes, book lists, art supply lists, and more. You’ll receive video content on many great art projects, tips on storing kids’ art, and videos on help with creating art with kids—even if it’s not your strong suit!

I so hope you will join us in Studying Under the Masters for Kids! It was a blast to create and I can’t wait to see what your children come up with! See you in class

*******

The registration price for Studying Under The Masters For KIDS is $52, will have 7+ hours of content, all videos will be pre-recorded for your convenience and has lifetime* access.

The course will begin on Monday, September 19, 2016.

Here is praise for the Studying Under The Masters series…

“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

*The guest artists will study under the “master” of their choice. This will include a brief history of the artist.

*Start to finish video of the artist practicing a painting of the chosen master

*A start to finish video of the artist creating their own art using techniques they have learned but creating in their own style

*Each week will end with the artist sharing the artists that have encouraged and inspired them over the years.

*Each week will have book and video references

*Weekly live online “chats” with the artist
