Painting Workshops with Artist Jessie Rasche, AIS

Welcome to my Online Painting Workshops! I’m a professional artist currently in South Dakota, originally from the Pacific Northwest. I paint life vibrantly, evoking rapport and meaningful connection. And I love to share my knowledge and encouragement with other artists!

Join me for a friendly and engaging workshop, whether you’re a beginner or seasoned artist, you’ll have the opportunity to enhance your skills.

Credentials: An award-winning Signature member of the American Impressionist Society, exhibiting member of American Artists’ Professional League, Oil Painters of America, and Outdoor Painters of Minnesota, and a Southwest Art Magazine “Artist to Watch.” My paintings have exhibited across the US, and ave found their homes in private collections across the US and Canada and overseas, and in several public collections.

I’ve been teaching online painting workshops for about 4 years now. And my work has printed in these and other magazines:

“Your Zoom classes have been making an online painting class feel very much like a live classroom experience. I have enjoyed painting with you and I feel like I’m learning more all the time! Thank you!” 
 K. Clark

“I am amazed at how organized you are, and admire your ability to break things down into baby steps that are easy understand—you are an awesome teacher!”
– Candy

“I took a drawing class from Jessie through an art group I belong to. She was professional, friendly, and alert to questions from the group. I most appreciated the explanation of value studies as that has been something I have struggled with …”

“Really enjoying your class.  Thanks for doing it!”  
 Elaine

“I really love the classes. You’re a great teacher and you make it fun!”
 Hattie

“I can’t tell you how excited I am to find you and finally make a decision to paint again. I have been in my oil paint four days in a row.  Saturday was so fun. I loved painting with a limited palette. That was an eye opener. […]  I do believe with some guidance I can achieve what my mind envisions. Sincerely,”  
 Anne Marie

FAQ

Q: What if I have questions or want feedback on my work? Will I get individual attention?

A: Yes, you’ll get lots of individual attention. You can ask questions during the weekly zooms, or email me.

Q: Is your workshop the right level for me?

A: Contact Jessie to talk about any workshop.

Q: Can I pay with a payment plan?

A: Yes! Contact me to pay for your workshop in 4 equal installments.

Q: Do I have to share my work?

A: No. You can share the amount that makes you comfortable.

Q: Can I enroll my kid in a workshop? 

A: These workshops are designed for adult artists. Teens with adult-level maturity would be welcome. For younger kids, sorry, this isn’t the right workshop.

Q: What are your workshops about?

A: My workshops are mostly long-form, giving artists the opportunity to really practice and learn the materials, as well as build a feeling of community. I loved art school, and want my workshops to have that feeling.

These workshops are generally on the fundamental topics of color, composition, brush and palette knife marks, and the mental/emotional aspects of art making.

Q: What is your art about?

A: My work focus​es​ on capturing the invisible connection between animals in a group, between animals and the land, and between people – in an unsentimental, painterly style filled with visible brush strokes and palette knife marks.​

“I so enjoyed your class, Jessie!  Always nice to think of art in different ways or to be reminded of things we had forgotten.”
 Barbara

“Hi Jessie,
I really enjoyed your class, and the way you present things. 
Thanks for a thoughtful and engaging class, and a deep dive into color schemes!”
 Elizabeth Franklin

2024 workshop plans

  • My year-long online workshop Find Your Artistic Voice just started, and is still open for enrollment. I’m in the process of writing an art book based on the workshop. We will have a couple lessons focused on materials, and people will be able to sign up for a 2-month section of the workshop (so artists can sign up for “Find Your Authentic Color Palette”, or “Find Your Authentic Compositions”, etc)
  • 3 or 4 free 1.3 hour online workshops in 2024 – a crash course on composition for beginners, a crash course on color palettes for beginners, etc.
  • 3 3-day online workshops – one will be “Color Fluency Workshop, and the other two I’m undecided on the topics. I’ve had a couple requests for a figurative workshop, but need to see how much interest there really is
  • An in-person workshop at PLAC on Painterly Brush Strokes, and 2 more in-person workshops to coincide with shows
  • And I’m planning to bring back my youtube channel with either monthly live paint-togethers, or a series of art tutorials…
