The Artist I have chosen is Marie Laurecin.

She is a fascinating and rather overlooked Master who hung with a pretty fab Artsy crowd…ya know…like…Georges Braque, Pablo Picasso, Gertrude Stein, Henri Rousseau and French poet and “father of surrealism” Guillaume Apollinaire.  Her work speaks to a deliberate and beautiful contrast to the cubist movement that her friends were so inspired by. Although often referred to as a rare female cubist, her work quickly derailed from this and evolved to a rather primitive, elegant and feminine style – where line and form blur, languid female forms and doe eyed faces tell little of emotion but rather evoke a state of ambivalence and mystery.

During my week of study with you, we will explore not only Marie’s personal history but her varied use of mediums, techniques and artistic methods. She mastered watercolors, inks, pencil studies as well as oils! Her works move from being cubist inspired to a place infused with inspiration from the Rococo period, Persian art, fashion and ballet. She was an illustrator, painter, portrait artist, set & costumer designer and muse to one of Paris’ most influential poets! A truly talented and powerful woman who I know you will love to study! I have planned for a super-inspired week chock full of learning, exploring and most importantly stretching beyond our artistic comfort zones! :) Get ready to truly feel what it is like to be an apprentice to a world renown artist right from the lovely comfort of your own home! Pretty sweet right?

So you might be curious…what are others saying about the Studying Under the Masters Course? Read on my friends…

Praise for the Masters series…

“In all my years as an artist, I have never had a course that stretched and grew me so much. Not only has my art taken off in so many exciting ways, but I was blessed with friendship and support I never expected. Thanks for all that you do. I am so looking forward to part two!”
-Renee

“The Studying the Masters class inspired me to look deeper into my own art process. The format where I was able to find out more about the artist’s process and their techniques captured my attention. The presenting artists were quality women whose own art process gave me confidence to keep going. I look forward to the next class.”
-Linda

“This course is one of the best I have taken in that it introduced me to several different modern day artists. In watching how they studied under some masters, I became a student of, not one, but TWO artists each week, some of whom I feel a real resonance with!! I feel as though I am finding more of my artistic voice as a result of this class, and that is pretty exciting!! Thanks so much Jeanne for helping me take another step closer to my dream! ”
-Silvia

“The best class ever no matter your talent level…seeing the instructors paint right along in  “their” style of painting trying to get close to what a Master created was so enlightening since each had awesome talent but different ways to get the final results that they wanted! We were in their studio with there favorite supplies, magic!”

Come join me in my home and create something special for you or someone you love just in time for the holiday season!

We will be creating whimsical portraits and dreamy landscapes, (however you are free to go in another direction as well.) Don’t fret if you’ve never painted a face before – I have some great tricks to share with you! Through a combination of collage and painting, a lovely and unique portrait will emerge! A muse, goddess, fairy or maybe even a self portrait – you decide! In our dreamy landscape project, we will be combining images from vintage postcards and other ephemera to create dreamlike, surreal and ethereal landscapes that beckon the soul to wander and explore. Once these compositions are complete, we will be incorporating encaustic layers and techniques to truly add another dimension of depth and beauty to these works!

I will be guiding you through several techniques such as collage, painting over collage, adding stamps and vintage papers, paint application, using stencils, creating layers with wax (encaustic), fusing, painting with wax and much more! Each student will be provided with two birch panels, pre-plastered for your convenience, plus access to my encaustic supplies, vintage paper stash, stamps and more!

If you have never painted on plaster, you are in for a treat! This luminous material provides an amazing backdrop for your composition, giving a wonderful texture and making the piece almost glow from within. Combined with the dreamy effect of encaustic wax layers this combo makes for a stunning finished piece of work! You will fall in love with this process!

Your day with me will begin with coffee and pastries by the fire while we all settle in and prepare to create. A full gourmet lunch with wine will be served and of course chocolate, snacks and steaming cups of hot coffee or tea will be available throughout our luxuriously creative day! The fire will be roaring, candles lit, the rain falling outside (most likely!) and together we will be blissfully creating the day away!

You will be encouraged to create at your own pace with one on one assistance from me and will leave with at least one finished piece of artwork, two if your process moves more quickly.

So treat yourself to a special day just for YOU! Honor your creativity, beat the holiday stress, learn something new and connect with other like minded souls.

I will be honored to spend the day with you and be your guide on this creative journey!

xo,

Ivy

  1. This class sounds wonderful, but I unfortunately can’t go. Will you be teaching any online classes like this? I love your style and technique!

  2. Wow!! I would love to do something like this :) I did a mosaic workshop a couple of years back, so much fun. Wish i had more time to be arty.
