The Art of Gathering | Creating Live Workshops Business Training with Jeanne Oliver

Castle Rock, CO | September 29 – October 1, 2023

Over the past 13 + years we have gathered others through live workshops here in the United States and abroad. Whether we have been leading a group making art along the Seine, taking a bike ride through the vineyards of Austria, baking croissants in Paris or opening the doors to our own home, land and studio…gathering has been at the heart of our business and life.

We started workshops very simply in local shops and by moving furniture around in our last home. We didn’t have all the things and we definitely didn’t have a dedicated space for events but by starting where we were with what we had we started to see the impact of gathering. We have since led over 1,000 creatives on art, history and cultural trips around the world, hosted art, home and business workshops at our home, land and studio and have led workshops at special venues around the US.

I started to see how using the gifts in me that treasured details, beauty and intention was not only bringing me joy but also blessing others. Seeing beauty everywhere and wanting to connect with that beauty became the heartbeat of The Living Studio workshops and transformed our business.

We live in a time where we may have taken gathering for granted in the past but I don’t think that will ever happen again. I also know now more than ever that, as the world gets ready to gather again that there are dreams in you that are ready to be born. I know so many that had put these dreams of gathering on a shelf but are hearing again those dreams come back to life and want to know how to walk out these ideas.

Our workshops are experiences that allow us to follow beauty all over the world and to see it the most right here at home. How will you impact your world through gathering?

In this workshop I will take away the mystery of creating beautiful, intentional and profitable workshops. The world is getting ready to gather again and it is waiting for your invitation.








The Art of Gathering Business Workshop

Castle Rock, CO | September 29 – October 1, 2023

We have built our creative business over the past 14 years. We started with a small Etsy shop, manufactured our own soft goods for many years, created and manage an online creative network with art + lifestyle workshops with over 66,000 members, sell original art + prints, a keynote speaker at large business and women’s workshops around the US, teach live art workshops in the US and abroad, collaborate with artists from all over the world and my first book, The Painted Art Journal, through North Light books was a best seller.

My journey has been a journey of second chances and not waiting one more day to live the creative life I was made to live. I truly designed the life I wanted to live and you can too!

As a business consultant the past seven years I have been able to help other creatives get their ideas off the ground, fine-tune an existing business or coach how to take their business to the next level.

With our whole heart, we believe that when we gather together and give ourselves the gift of community, focus and a plan that everything changes. Gather with us!

“My cup overflows with joy, peace and inspiration”—- is how I felt after attending my first workshop at Jeanne’s Living Art studio. Experiencing a workshop a Jeanne’s will not only inspire your art heart, it will minister to every part of your creative soul. You will experience touches of love, beauty and wonder everywhere: in her genuine hospitality, words of encouragement/teaching, and the delicious meals are also a feast for your eyes! The studio is a bright and joyful place where you will be able to gain new insights, make new friends, and ignite your creative Spirit. I have a job where I am continually pouring out on others, and while I love it, it can leave me weary and depleted, so coming to the workshops at Jeanne’s have become an important part of my self-care. I have found a place at the Living Studio that refreshes all parts of my creative soul – mind, body, Spirit and heart- and I am very grateful. No wonder it’s called the LIVING studio.

Attending a live workshop at Jeanne Oliver’s personal art studio in Castle Rock, Colorado was an experience that everyone deserves to enjoy. The beautiful studio is set in a gorgeous wooded surrounding with paths for walking and open areas for picnicking. We were spoiled with picnic lunches prepared by Jeanne and her family. There was something for everyone! It was the perfect retreat for refreshing and although I thought it would be the only time I would travel for a workshop to Castle Rock, I have been planning for another visit soon. Jeanne has a well-stocked studio and this is a real advantage for travelers. The biggest treat for me was having our final lunch in Jeanne’s amazing home with her warm and engaging family. It was wonderful to meet new artist friends too. We have all continued to inspire each other and reflect on the special time at Jeanne’s. I truly cannot say enough about the character and integrity of Jeanne Oliver and her family. You just feel good being there and getting to know these beautiful humans. It was an experience I will not forget and I can’t wait to do it again!
