Jeanne Oliver "Cast of Characters - Portraits through paint, ink, and collage" Workshop

  • Instructor Jeanne Oliver
  • Date March 2-4, 2018
  • Location Lincolnton, NC

ALL SUPPLIES INCLUDED. BREAKFAST, LUNCH, SNACKS, & DRINKS PROVIDED!!

Workshop Description:

We are all surrounded by a cast of characters in our life and story.  Join me as we gather those characters and begin to create portraits that go deeper than what you see on the surface. Using my favorite sketching exercises, techniques and supplies we will dive into storytelling through portraits. 

At the end of the first day, you will be surrounded by your portrait sketches your own story will start to be revealed. With our other days together we will build upon our sketches to create completed portrait work through paint and collage. We will alter our pieces with image transfers, hand-painted flowers, mark making, hand carved stamps and more. 

Jeanne's Bio

Jeanne is married to her dream maker, Kelly, and the mother to three funny and creative kiddos.  She home schools her children even though she has tried to get out of it a few times.  You can often find her hiking in her state of Colorado, making creative messes in her studio and finding an excuse to have another cup of coffee.

She speaks and teaches all around the country and sometimes she even gets to cross the pond.  She was told that she needed to find that one thing but she doesn’t like listening to directions so she embraces many loves and that has given her a sweet mash up of family, art, decorating and fashion.  Connecting with women and sharing that each of us has been creatively made is one of her passions.   The Lord is showing her each day to trust in him and he has been knocking her socks off every since.

Workshops Policies : Half-day, full-day, multi-day workshops, and special events are scheduled throughout the year. Once you purchase a workshop you will be enrolled.

Due to limited class size, purchased spots for all workshops are transferable but payment is non-refundable. What this means: If you buy a class spot and are unable to attend, and if there is a waiting list of students that has formed, we will put you in contact with the first person on the list to whom you can offer your class spot. If the person on the list accepts, then that person will need to pay you for your spot and once that transaction is complete and both parties are satisfied, we will transfer your spot to the other person. If you are unable to attend and there is no waiting list, we will unfortunately be unable to provide refunds.

Emergency Cancellations : In the very rare event of an emergency or unavoidable natural disaster or act of God, the class may be cancelled. In this situation, all fees will be reimbursed to students in full.

If you would like to enroll in a workshop that has been sold out, please send an email to bill@donnadowney.com and you will be put on a waiting list.
