5 days to Jumpstart your Creativity

   Watch Promo

Calling EVERYONE who wants to add more creativity to their lives.

An invitation: Join me for a 5 day Creative Living challenge. {Not just for artists, not just for creative business owners, but FOR EVERYONE}

Why: are you leading this challenge? I believe everyone is creative. Always have, always will.

I KNOW. Life is BUSY! You might think creativity is not productive or self indulgent. But are you getting enough time for you, to focus on what you truly love. Maybe? You're not even sure what you truly love to do? and can't find the time to even figure it out let alone pursue it. You think being creative could be fun? But you're probably not really creative? How do you start? Where do you get ideas.

For years I've said "I believe everyone is Creative". For the non believers, thankfully research is beginning to reveal the truth in this statement. The well known researcher and author Brene Brown recently did a study on the shame around unused creativity and she says "There is no such thing as Non Creative People. There are just people who use their creativity and people who don't". She said for those of us who deny it, it festers into resentment, grief and heartbreak.

And I know how fulfilling your individual creative expression can transform all of those emotions. As a self-taught Artist, I chose to use creativity for my vocation and it became the way I choose to live my life. Since the early days of Creative Thursday I've been on a mission to share and encourage my passion for creativity in a supportive, nurturing way; which is why I'm inviting you to join me starting next Monday.


BOTTOM LINE: Fulfilling your individual creative expression is not self indulgent, it is a NECESSITY {VITAL} to a happy, balanced life.

This challenge is also an answer to a request. When I sent out a recent survey to my email subscribers, the number one wish was to learn more about "How to Live a Creative Life". Having made the choice to dedicate myself to the regular practice of creativity over the past 14 years, I know firsthand the fulfillment, the joy, the grounding, the peace, and the clarity that come when you make creativity a priority. And I know what it takes to make it a way of life.

What: will we be doing? Getting inspired, inviting creativity, having fun and making friends. Marisa will send out a daily email with a short question, thought and/or prompt, taking no more than 15 minutes to complete. The prompts will be followed by a live video by Marisa sharing more details, answering questions and offering feedback if you are asking. The video recordings will remain posted in our private Facebook group.

When: October 2 - 6, 2017. Just 5 days, that's it! to jumpstart the creativity in your life.

Cost: Free. I invite you to be my guest.

Support, encouragement, inspiration and achievable action are the intentions behind my teaching style. It's all about empowerment with more ease and less overwhelm, trusting your intuition and loving your life.

~ Caroline

"Marisa, I've enjoyed your class so much! The timing couldn't have been more perfect, as I was in the developing stages of beginning my own creative business. There were many elements of business marketing, branding, and profitability I would not have considered, and probably wouldn't have even known I should consider, had it not been for the course content in Permission to Be Creative and Make Money. Based on many topics you covered in this class, I have successfully contracted with a local art shop to begin selling my jewelry. And, I am very much looking forward to making money doing something I truly enjoy!"

~ Rhonda

"I just watched all the lessons {from How to Paint a Bear} and enjoyed this class very much. Your ease of teaching and explanations made me want more. You held my attention and gave so many tips...I didn't want it to end. I can't wait to get some supplies and create my own little bear. 😊 Thank you for inviting us into your sweet little creative world. I hope to see more classes like this and create my own style in the process."
