Beyond the Studio Series with Leslie O'Leary

What if there was a way to expand and grow in your art beyond techniques? My intention for you in the Beyond the Studio Series is to help you increase your knowledge and understanding of a deeper layer of what art can be! By sharing with you, how you can create from a different point of view, I will guide you to expand past the ordinary into the extraordinary.

I will bring my understanding of mastery, research, and insight from 30 years of working as a full-time artist. Each Special Event will hold a different topic as a Presentation with bonuses for you of a Worksheet PDF, and personal interaction with me in a Live Zoom Chat.

Looking forward to spending this special time with you!

Event #1 - The Swim Upstream: The Journey of an Artist with Leslie O’Leary

I would love to invite you to join me in this exploration of what possibilities of creating can be.

As artists, most of us are on a never-ending quest to express our world…our life.

Please join me as I share in this Presentation, my personal art journey through the swim in the upward current to finally find the place of riding with the current. I will present to you my one-of-a-kind work including progress photos and how life’s understandings have guided me to create more evolved art. My workshop or class designs will make their appearance as they also weave their way through to this Presentation.

My eagerness is to give each one of you relatable insights into your own art journey through a workable process of discovery that you can bring to your own artistic life. 

  • Three days to enjoy pre-recorded downloadable presentation video

  • PDF Worksheet

  • Personal Zoom Q & A plus discussion on the last day!
