How does the monthly membership work?

Each month you will have access to a new lesson and module. Every month is focused on a different aspect of design and abstract art.(think how to mix and chose your colors, using design in abstract art, creating the illusion of detail, using value to create focal points, etc.)

You will be given instructional tools to understand these artistic principles, followed by a step-by-step video lesson incorporating these tools.

Access to monthly zoom calls (starting in January 2023) gives you an opportunity to meet Lisa and other students to learn from one another and ask questions to Lisa directly. 

Access to a private Facebook™ community to share your art and receive feedback 24/7!

Each month consists of:

  • A different skill building focus
  • A new and engaging project based on that artistic principle
  • Monthly zoom call

Fiona | London, England

I was working with oil paints, timidly moving paint around...I wanted to learn skills and gain confidence. Lisa's course asked me questions I hadn't thought about before that immediately gave me a clear understanding of the process, and my work blossomed in astounding ways. My work feels meaningful to me, which is the biggest gift of all. I know exactly what to do so I don't get so stuck.  I'm having so much more success  and fun, because I'm not so worried about the outcome.



Debbie| Portland, Maine

One of the main things that's so great about Lisa's program is the group dynamic. I didn't realize I'd bond so deeply with the other participants. Lisa is by far the best teacher I have had anywhere- ever. She is so incredibly skilled at making everyone feel  comfortable, heard, accepted. She gently opened the door for us to connect in real, vulnerable and meaningful ways in a way that I had- in all my 66 years and schooling- never experienced before. I was able to connect with other artists who are beginners like me, and others who are professionals. I've made life  long meaningful friendships, and found my creative voice. Worth every penny and more.

James | San Francisco, California

Before Creative Breakthrough Blueprint, I was feeling lost, demoralized a bit actually  by living a life that wasn't really true to myself.   After? I'm confident, exuberant even in my art making. I am much clearer on what I'm doing art-wise, and I completely see the connections with my art and my life in general. Since taking Lisa's course in 2020, I have been working full time as an artist and making a living making art. In my wildest dreams, this would be my life. Thank you Lisa!!
