Why Creative Practice?

The thing I’m asked most often is how I am able to make a living as an artist.

I could tell you about Paypal buttons, affiliate programs, social media techniques, pricing your work, marketing your work, branding your work, selling your work.

But the true secret to my success an artist and creative entrepreneur has to do with just one thing:
having a creative practice.

The secret is not in your products, services, packaging, messaging, pricing, and the other details we get hung up on when trying to earn a living from our art.

The secret is in having a Creative Practice.

During our 8 weeks together, Creative + Practice is designed help you:

  • Develop a daily creative practice in a gentle, yet effective and sustainable way
  • Discover how to use creative practice to make progress on your goals, dreams, and ideas
  • Build a solid foundation for a flourishing creative practice you can use for a lifetime
  • Learn easy-to-use expressive journaling tools — no previous art or writing experience is required at all
  • Utilize the power of positive habit change
  • Challenge assumptions and old patterns of thought
  • Keep a creative sketchbook as a tool for healing, transformation, problem-solving and insight

“No words to tell you how HUGELY excited I am about this. thank you, Lisa!

Thank you so much–I love that I can revisit the course any time–it played such a big part in my Great Creative Awakening.

I’m beaming love right at you–hope you can feel it. Creative + Practice honestly changed my life.

I can’t live without working in my sketchbook now. Yay!” —

Love, Shelly Noyes

What is Creative Practice?

while building the momentum that keeps you moving through the creative cycle:
