Join me on JeanneOliver.com for a wonderful artful adventure and meet Fawn, Dink, Daffy and Babe…every animal has a story, thoughts, daydreams, and interests….

Starting with photos of these beautiful animals you will begin a journey that develops and expand your images to beautiful watercolor pieces. This course will cover different sketching techniques that will help you capture each animal and leverage your personal skills no matter your level of experience from beginner to expert. Along the way you will learn how to build your palette to capture nature’s best colors, new color mixing techniques and sealing your paintings. Each class will focus on a different animal and a different approach to watercolor.

The inspiration for this course started with the Gratitude Gate Farm Sanctuary, located in Bucks County, PA. which was created for animals in need of a chance to be loved and learned from.*
*Portions of the profits from this session will be donated to Gratitude Gate Farm

All Things Fall


Do you love Fall? Do you anticipate the long awaited pumpkin spice latte or the crackle and beauty of the leaves changing? Well, I sure do. I adore projects that get me in the spirit, and nothing says Fall like an old rusty pickup full of pumpkins. It says, "hop on...let's take a hay ride and sip warm apple cider", right?! If Fall is your thing, then THIS is the class for you! 

There is literally NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED! I will be showing you how to masterfully trace this pickup and lay down very simple watercolor techniques. Trust me, you're going to have a blast!

Register for the pickup truck class or request a Custom Painting (colors of your choosing).
Join me for a second addition of Watercolor Rolodex, in which we cover the  
wonders of Fall thru watercolor. We will add to our Memorydex Spinners, created by the fabulous Heidi Swapp, and we will be using a couple of her Memorydex accessories (die and punch). We will cover assorted techniques on Fall leaves, landscapes and food. Side note, if you don't have a spinner and prefer to work in a watercolor journal or make watercolor cards instead, please feel free to join us! Simply bring your watercolor journal and prepared watercolor cards with you!

As with most of my classes, no experience required, beginners are most welcome!

If you'd like a quick glimpse at the finished spinner cards, here's the link to my promo video.

Just a heads up, there are only a couple seats left! To register for the rolodex, click here. 

That's all for now y'all! Thanks for stopping by!

As many of you know, I occasionally host a private lesson in my home. We will have our final "outdoor" lesson on Saturday, September 28th from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. If you are interested, please feel free to register on the link to the right. Our focus for this lesson will be on still-life pumpkins and leaves. I will have assorted pumpkins and leaves spread out on the tables for you to sketch and paint. In addition to your painty lesson, I will have snacks and beverages available for you as well. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me!
