Daily Sketchbook Painting

with Helen Dardik

Join us!

Welcome to the Thursday Club Lesson 2! "Daily Sketchbook Painting" with guest teacher Helen Dardik

So I've been thinking...as a working artist and teacher, with growing business and personal demands, who wants to get back to regular creating...

Wouldn't it be great to go from feeling overwhelmed + depleted, to carefree + creative, as you experience the fulfillment that comes from taking time for your creativity while learning and exploring alongside an encouraging and supportive community of kindred spirits?

This is the reason why I started the Thursday Club: To bring more energy and joy to your every day through a regular practice of creativity.


And it's also the BEST reason why I get to bring you a new LIVE lesson every month with inspiring and encouraging guest teachers, like Helen Dardik {@helen_dardik on instagram}



Join us! Our next lesson is "Daily Sketchbook Painting" with Helen Dardik, Thursday, March 7 @ 11:30 am PST/2:30 pm EST. {If you can't join live, no worries! You will get the video recording of the Lesson.} This is the very first time Helen is making this workshop available online, and you won't want to miss it!

Last December Helen and I taught a weekend painting workshop together in person. If you don't yet know her, or you've been following her for years, you will see what a delight Helen is to learn from. Relaxed, fun, hilarious and so imaginative. She is dedicated to her daily sketchbook painting, and bringing that passion for creativity to our upcoming lesson together. We will also be talking about the practice of painting from internal cues vs. external, creating from your imagination.

I know you're going to LOVE this lesson ~ Marisa

"I am loving Marisa's community so much. I've had some shifts already! I'm painting up a storm, getting ready for the group's art walk/website launch. And I've had a big shift around the whole teaching possibility. I am starting to feel out what aspect of art-making really calls to me, what would I want to delve into and share with other artists in the form of a little online course. And this is coming from a place of inspiration and excitement. I'm amazed that I'm even typing all of this!"
