Jeff Olson: artist & art teacher

Jeff Olson: artist & art teacher

Wednesday, October 26, 2022

Jeff Olson is a US based artist residing in Seattle, Washington. Moreover, he is the Director of Art Education for Royal Talens North America. We are very fortunate and proud that he supports the values and mission of the Royal Talens Foundation.

As an artist, Jeff has a significant and original body of work spanning thirty years. His paintings offer a unique vision of the landscape and the inspirational forces of nature which shape it. His primary medium is Amsterdam™ acrylic paint on canvas, applying the material with a direct and rapid technique. 

Jeff holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in painting and drawing. He has a decade of college and university teaching experience in studio art, and more than twenty years in the art material industry with product expertise in a variety of mediums. Olson’s lectures deliver meaningful insights into the history, development, and application of artists’ materials.

“The emphasis of my process is one of discovery. It is this philosophy that makes painting exciting and meaningful for me and feeds my ambitions as an artist”.

This painting was donated by Olson to the upcoming Royal Talens Foundation auction in 2023!

As the Director of Art Education for Royal Talens North America, Jeff coordinates and facilitates retail product training and promotion, our educational outreach, and the nationally recognized art ambassador program.

The mission of the Art Education Program is to provide resources and services to our retail partners, artists, and educators that encourages artistic experimentation and expression. At Royal Talens our broadest mission is to Facilitate and Stimulate Creative Expression. The goal of the Education Program is to Engage, Inform and Inspire to that end.

"I believe that education is potential. That it can be the catalyst to understanding the world as it is and how it might be and develops within us a stronger sense of the self and our place in the world as we chose to create it."

They give children from 1 to 12 years old the opportunity to express their creativity without any added pressure. In doing so, the children improve their social, emotional and motor skills.
