Classes

I emphasize art as an important vehicle in learning and living for all ages. It is my passion to inspire others, make a lasting impression in their journey, and be living proof that whatever their goal may be, it is achievable.

Teaching is at the heart of my artistic being. I offer studio classes, online classes, and travel to teach in-person classes, workshops, and retreats. It is with great joy that I lead others on creative adventures and it is with great gratitude that I am inspired by these opportunities.

Teaching Experience

For over 25 years, I have taught both privately and as guest artist in commercial studios, schools, museums, arts councils, colleges, and a number of other venues in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Florida.

I have taught classes for adults and children in painting, pottery, glass fusing, drawing, paper art, mosaics, art journaling, mixed media, and eco-art. I inspire positive self-confidence in students and mentored rising artists.

As an Adjunct Professor at Florida Southern College, I teach Ceramics 1 and 2 where I facilitate student learning through an imaginative, higher level thinking approach.

As a former classroom teacher in elementary and middle schools, I facilitated innovative teaching methods of covering the curriculum goals and objectives using art, technology, and hands-on interactive learning.

Favorite Teaching Moment

My favorite teaching moment is actually a moment that repeats itself during my workshops. It is when I am working with adults who, after years of their daily lives have left them feeling unimaginative and lacking creativity, have gone through their journey of art with me and have discovered that they are artistically expressive. They discover joy from within.
It is pure magic!

Connections...Pottery, Paper, People

Rachelle and I met around the first of February 2019 at the Epcot International Festival of the Arts in Disney World. She had an enticing pergola that drew me in the moment I saw it. Within a couple minutes of enjoying her delightful art work, Rachelle joined us and began sharing the stories of the multimedia pieces hubby and I were perusing. Shortly thereafter she invited us inside. As we followed her in I knew I was permanently hooked! We were surrounded by the most marvelous collection of pottery and paintings I have personally viewed. I brought home an exquisite painting and the beginning of a sweet friendship.

During the past year my "Rachelle Collection" of unique, one-of-a-kind pottery has grown to nearly 70 pieces. I own quite a variety of Rachelle's art - from a Brie Baker in gorgeous shades of blue to a purple (my favorite color, and Rachelle's!) table-top Christmas tree. The collection includes over a dozen individualized mugs and a variety of stunning vases/planters. I ended up buying a curio cabinet just to display my newly acquired pieces of beautiful pottery.

I have, as well, discovered that Rachelle's pottery makes a greatly welcomed gift for any special someone. Whether treating yourself or a loved one, you can't go wrong when selecting a piece, or two, of Rachelle's eye-catching pottery.

True art is an extension of the artist; in essence, their soul. We met Rachelle several years back. Actually, we “met” her work. And later we had the opportunity to meet Rachelle, the artist. It was an easy, almost instant, connection with her and her creative work. She brings people together and connects us with time, place, texture, color, and the earth.

As her journey and story continues, we are looking forward to seeing what’s next and experiencing the world through Rachelle’s hands and spirit.

In the fast pace of life, we encourage you to slow down; stop, if you can and stay a bit. And look, just not with your eyes. Listen...just not with your ears. Can you hear the whisper?

I currently have four pieces of Rachelle’s pottery and I love each piece for how beautiful, unique, and special they each are. Three of the pieces I have in my home as decorations and every time I see them in my home, they bring me so much joy. I love the layers and depths of color. They are simply beautiful.

My mug has become such a source of comfort to me. I love curling up with a cup of tea and having my special mug cradled in my hands.

Rachelle’s loving and caring nature is in every piece she creates. I love the beauty and comforting feeling her Rachelle’s pottery creates in our home.

The first time I saw a Rachelle Eason plant-stained journal I was moved in a way that I can’t explain. Their beauty touched me like no other art has. Since my first encounter with them I have purchased at least a dozen, and plan on purchasing many more. Every time I can’t decide what to give someone as a gift and I want to make it extra special, I give a Rachelle Eason plant-stained journal. It’s the perfect, hand-made gift of art. One of my friends burst into tears at the beauty of her journal. She was moved just like I was. I have had the chance to meet Rachelle several times and her sweet spirit adds to the beauty of her journals. I know how much of her heart and soul has gone into them. They are more than journals. They can become pieces of art displayed in many unique ways in your home, photo albums or scrapbooks, or as I am currently using one, as a piece of beauty to bring calm to your soul. I love and appreciate the art of Rachelle Eason and hope and pray that others will be moved by it and see the beauty in life that it inspires.

If you desire the freshness of nature, but require that beauty to have a longer life span than that of a fresh flower - Rachelle Eason journals are the perfect blend. The most amazing flowers are magically transformed on to paper so that they can remain in your life or on your walls or desk. They transform paper into a soothing piece of art that will pull you in. You will be totally drawn to the journals but, understand that you will hesitate for a moment before you write the first word. Once you do, you will be hooked. Or ... choose to frame a piece of this magical paper, and it will smooth your nerves for years to come. I say choose both.

Rachelle's pottery is beautiful and are works of art! I appreciate the notes she encloses in each order- I love having her pieces in my classroom and home. Every time I see them and touch them I feel connected to her and the love and positive vibes she put into making them.

Timmie Kearns

I felt an instant connection to Rachelle and her art the first time we met at an art show. Her passion and enthusiasm for her art is contagious! I love that she uses natural materials to stain papers and the colors and shapes that she creates are beautiful. I started with 3 journals (for myself and my daughters) and also some stationery. The recipients of my notes on Rachelle's plant stained paper always ask where I found such a unique product. We now have a large matted and framed print hanging in our main living area. Guest and visitors always comment on our one of a kind piece of art.

For several years I have been enjoying Rachelle’s special art! Ihave always loved nature and flowers in particular. Her reuse of flowers and plants in her work gives it a fresh natural aspect and is also eco-friendly. I have purchased several of her plant-stained journals and they are filled with wonderful detail. From the varied stains in the pages , to the imaginative front covers, to the colorful threads used to bind the spines , you can easily see she puts her heart into her work . Rachelle has a special unique eye for beauty and can pull it forth into many different mediums including paper and ceramics. Meeting Rachelle and obtaining some of her art has brought me much happiness and tranquility.

Gayle Forry

The art of Rachelle Eason is an invitation to explore the wonders of nature. Her creations are a kaleidoscope of color and texture that will enhance your appreciation of the natural world. We and our guests enjoy the work of Rachelle in our home.

I had the pleasure of meeting the talented Rachelle at Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival. I was lucky enough to purchase one of her beautiful handmade books made with flowers. I can’t say enough about it, her work is fascinating and each page in the journal is blooming with flowers and rich colors.
