‘Supplies Me!’ was the first stand-alone e-course that I created and it’s primary goal has always been to release you from any confusion or overwhelm you have with your supplies. I designed it so you could discover the art materials that work best for you and your emerging style.
I recommend all my students start with this workshop because it develops confidence in your art by mastering your supplies. When we are covering more challenging aspects in my other workshops, drawing fairies feet or a mermaids uplifted face for example, I don’t want part of your mind worrying about what you are going to use to create it. ‘Supplies Me!’ aims to get you feeling like the ‘boss’ of your paints and pencils.
The basics on drawing whimsical faces and figures is also part of the wonderful experience as well as shading, blending, colour selection, backgrounds, drawing hair, eyes; the list goes on. ‘Supplies Me!’ is perfect for a newbie or anyone who hasn’t been in contact with their art for a while.
‘Supplies Me!’ will be running as a Live Class in a new classroom starting on January 5th. All past, current and new members are invited to participate. You watch the Lessons when it suits you. You can join the light, positive and inspiring social interaction in our private forum and Facebook group and share your artwork.
For those that have never taken a workshop with me, or have done ‘Draw Happy’ and are hesitating to take the leap to the next level, then I’m hoping the following news gives you a little nudge in the right direction.
p.s the Australian Dollar is the weakest it’s been for a while,
so that makes all my workshops much cheaper
ie: 82USD, £52 or €70.
So I’m hoping this great price encourages you to pop
‘Supplies Me!’ in your own or a loved one’s Christmas stocking!
(You simply enter the code as you check out as we can’t refund the discount.
This Promotion runs from 16th Dec and expires on Jan 5th.)
To celebrate the workshop moving to it’s new home I have created a HUGE package of my favourite Art Supplies for one lucky person!
The winner will receive all these goodies and their registration fee refunded.
Drawn on January 6th.
Don’t forget we now have Lifetime Access!
I really wanted to give a heart felt ‘Thank you’ to everyone who has joined one of my workshops since I started this wild adventure 3 years ago. The joy and happiness it brings me to see all the wonderful artwork created and friendships made in my Art School is immeasurable.
If you are an existing member of ‘Supplies Me!’ then full details of the Lifetime Access is under the ‘NEWS’ tab in our Jane Davenport Art School. You don’t need to do a thing – you just keep enjoying the workshops you have enrolled in as usual – forever!
This year has been a really busy one for me, and now, as the calendar approaches the end of the year, it usually gets even busier. But I changed things up.
I made this plan back in January. I declared October as a ‘month off’. A time to hang out a bit more with no travel. I love travel, but it is intrusive right? So just being in my own space and consciously enjoying it was a delight that I let spread into November. I feel calm, relaxed and peaceful. I have made more time for art, friends and just ‘being’.
On the other hand, I have never seen Angus busier! Usually I’m the one racing around doing 50 things at once, but with the new building, a lawn mower, planting trees and a very popular store, he is flat out! While he is painting, planting and posting I keep him company. Holding the wheelbarrow or making a cup of tea and chatting. It’s nice. I feel so grounded and thankful.
I made time to reorganise my studio, my office and bedroom drawers. Things that have been niggling at me for ages. Then I re-filmed all of my workshop invitation/showreels. That felt GOOD. Then I completely refilmed Draw Happy. That felt SUPER GOOD. And now I just started re-filming and re-organising ‘SUPPLIES ME! for the live class in January. Taking my time with it.
I realised something about myself this year. I get stuff that matters to me, done.
No matter what.
So I don’t feel so rushed or pressured anymore.
I wrote a book for a major publisher; Now I have it in my hands. I created a year of Art Lessons for Cloth Paper Scissors; The last one is about to be released. I hosted Art retreats in Paris. I met art heroes and forged friendships. I am TRUSTING how capable I am. And that brings me into a zone of freedom without the constant undercurrent hum of ‘cripes-i-can’t-get-everything-done’ panic.
I want to make sure it lasts.
So, in amongst savouring the planning of new workshops, relishing signing my books and mindfully prepping for my new puppy ( I’ve been waiting 2 years and she arrives tomorrow – eeeeeeeeee!), I’m lovingly celebrating an amazing year by creating my own Christmas decorations. Each one is for a specific family member. Each one from a different tutorial of Artsy Ornaments.
I LOVED making Christmas Tree decorations as a kid – and my darling Mum kept all the goofiest ones I made ( I’ll have to get a photo of the Australian themed ones – hilarious!). A few less survive each year, but they make their way from the decorations box and on to the tree. It’s time to add a few new ones and create some heirlooms for my little nieces and nephews from Aunty Jane.
Join myself and Christy Tomlinson, Margie Romney-Aslett, Chrissy Gardner, Limor Webber, Dyan Reaveley, Misty Mawn, Effy Wild, Jenny Wentworth, Mindy Lacefield, Julie Fei- Fan Balzer and Tamara Laporte in a wonderful celebration!
I created a tutorial on ‘Festive Fairies’! Cute, yes?
I hope you are approaching the end of the year at a manageable pace. And if you need to savour the moments a little more, come and make some artsy ornaments with me.
This workshop is open for an ENTIRE year! You can access the material, night or day.. from any computer.. for an entire year. The Class is NOT live, so you won’t miss a thing if you can’t be there right when it starts. You can watch the workshop at your own pace, in your pjs if you want!
InterWeave, who publish Cloth Paper Scissors, my Whimsical Face DVD and all my Art Lessons: Supply Stash Series seem to be having an especially awesome sale at the moment. Did you know that they sell art supplies in the USA too? It’s where I first saw a Gelli plate… I thought it was the most fascinating thing. And obviously plenty of others did too because they were always sold out!
Fast forward a few years and now if you type in ‘Jane Davenport’ on the search bar on the interweave site, up pops a lovely list of arty publications that I authored/created. In fact three of my publications made the Editors Picks List! Having a mind trip about that.
Happy weekend and get your art on!
I have a review on the new Distress Stain Sprays over at the Cloth Paper Scissors blog today. Do you really need more sprays? Probably not, I know I don’t! But I have Rainbowitis, and the distress colour range is just so beautiful ( hello Tea dye, Antique Linen), so I’m willing to risk too much of a good thing.
When I sit down to create, I rarely know what is going to happen. I have a general idea, and maybe a feeling for what colour or art materials I want to use. first. And life just goes from there.
I am thinking about Frida a lot ( part of my brain has a little Frida shrine set up with flowers and candles) so it’s little wonder that she keeps making appearances in my artwork. Mr. Angus refers to her as ” the lady with the eyebrows.” Yes. the eyebrows. But so much more. So, so much more…
