Gorgeous Online Art Courses Coming in September!

I hope you are having a beautiful weekend! We have been creating, watching movies, stealing wild sunflowers from the side of the road and reading.  It has been exactly what we were needing.

I wanted to let you know about FOUR courses that are beginning this month.  I don’t ever think we have had such a rich line up in one month.  This is the perfect time of year to dive back into your creativity!

Hand-Forged: A Metal and Torch Soldering Jewelry course begins on September 12th.  This course is being taught by Stephanie Lee who is a pioneer in the  art of jewelry soldering.  It is an honor to have such a gifted teacher a part of our creative network and to have her bringing new techniques and projects to all of the artists in her course. The jewelry pieces she is teaching are gorgeous and perfect gifts for the upcoming holidays.

Eclectic Beaded Crochet Jewelry course begins on September 19th.  This course is being taught by well loved teacher Robin Dudley-Howes.  On trend and 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. These are addictive and so fun to make!

Studying Under the Masters for Kids begins on September 19th. This course is being taught by Nationally recognized homeschool teacher, speaker and curriculum creator Alicia Hutchinson.  This is the course that my kids and I are so excited to dive into this year!  This course is all about history, techniques, creativity and expressive play.  Whether you homeschool your children or not…this course will be incredible for the kids or grandkids in your life!  You can watch the course trailer HERE.

Paint Your Town: Mixed Media Urban Landscapes begins on September 26th.  This course is being taught by Jeanne Oliver.  We will become tourists in our own towns and open our eyes to the photography, sketching, architecture, people, cafes, painting, connecting, history and beauty right in front of us.  We will create abstract landscapes, work with sketching and watercolors, collage, image transfers, charcoal sketches and create mini works of art to create our own Paint Your Town journals when we are done. You can watch the course trailer HERE.

See you in class and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

    Jeanne, I can not tell you how frustrated I am with your website registration. I have spent the last 25 minutes trying to register for a course using my VISA. PAYPAL will not let the transaction go through. I DO NOT WANT TO USE PAYPAL. This is so exasperating! Is there some reason why I cannot sign up for a course with my preferred method of payment? Please advise.

      If you are having an issue it is the browser you are using and a paypal issue. We are sorry you are having a hard time registering. I have not heard of anyone else having an issue. We are always happy to send you an invoice and manually adding you to the course. If you are having an issue the best way to reach us is to email us at contact@jeanneoliverdesigns.com. Thank you.

      I don’t like paypal either, but have always been able to just pay easily with my credit card.
      I use Firefox browser.
      Maybe try going to a library or coffee shop to see if different wifi and browser helps?
      Hope you find something that helps.
