Extra Special Retreats Coming…

I love to travel, explore new parts of the world, try new foods, take in the local culture, take my time in an art museum and find the perfect place to create.

Creating art and traveling has helped me to grow as an artist in ways I could have never imaged.

Recently, one of my students was talking to a group of women and shared about my workshops. Her words made their way back to me and she later wrote to me how much my workshop meant to her and her creative process…

“Jeanne Oliver is not just an art teacher, she is an artist’s teacher. Jeanne doesn’t just show you how to replicate the beautiful art that she creates, she teaches you how to create your art as an artist. When retreating with or studying under Jeanne, her art is not your primary inspiration, her way of creation, her way of being as a living artist is. Learning to make art with Jeanne is learning to develop yourself as a uniquely gifted artist. Jeanne teaches the art of becoming an artist, that is most clearly her purpose and call.”  -Cara

I have to tell you that when I read those words my hear was FULL because I have never just wanted to teach someone to make art just like me…I have wanted to help others to find their own way creatively and make art!

Your art can be writing, gardening, photography, decorating, storytelling, painting, cooking and the list goes on and on.

I am so excited to share that I have two very special art retreats that are coming up next year.

There is very limited space in both retreats!

Won’t you consider joining me next year and making time to connect with your creative self? It is one of the most priceless gifts I have ever given to myself.
