The Creative Sketchbook
The Meaningful Way to Make & Keep A Visual Art Journal for Discovery, Insight, Healing, and…Pure Fun!
The Creative Sketchbook is an online workshop that guides you through the process of visual art journaling in your own creative sketchbook.
The Creative Sketchbook helps you excavate your own true desires, innate wisdom, and intuition, with ease, gentleness and joy.
I will show you how to create without fear of the blank page, learning how to play and make a happy mess without fear of doing it wrong or not doing it perfectly.
“Opened me up to a whole new world — where I combine my love of art with personal growth and healing.” — Linda Hough

After over a decade of not being able to maintain a practice (start. stop. start. forget. start. get self-conscious) I express myself almost every day in writing or process painting like what I learned from Lisa in The Creative Sketchbook. — Rachel Dominguez-Brenner

The way we approach the blank page is a metaphor for life.
I’ll show you how it is fun to create, how pleasurable it is to tap into the visions and dreams that wait within you, eager for expression.
Especially if you don’t think of yourself as “creative” or “artistic”. Or if you’ve lost confidence in your creativity lately. You’ll be amazed at what you create after just one session! I promise!
Each session offers process-inspired visual art journaling techniques that incorporate mixed media collage, photography, painting, and writing.
Absolutely no experience is necessary. We’ll use simple supplies that you can easily find, stuff you might already have around the house, or buy for kids.
- Immediate access to the online workshop, with lifelong access (including new content!)
- Dozens of step-by-step tutorials with hundreds of images — that make it fun and easy to face the blank page

- Engaging and delightful visual journaling prompts that you can pick and choose, mix and match
- Exclusive access to my own sketchbooks and creative process that I don’t share anywhere else
- Recorded video sessions

ImagineNation: Where The Creative Sketchbook Takes Us
Every idea first begins with a dream, or some inking to create or grow that we can’t quite name.
My dream is the simple desire to create beauty and use art for healing, and show others how to do the same.
Your Tour Guidess:
I want to help you give voice to your creative dreams, and keeping a creative sketchbook is the most simple, fun, and easy direct route I know to take you there.
Visual journaling and keeping sketchbooks has been a lifelong practice for me, one that’s supported me in every area of my life and work.
This work is practical.
This work is imaginative.
I first began sharing these this work when I was a therapist in psychiatric hospitals, with patients in treatment for substance abuse and eating disorders.
Since then, for more than 20 years, thousands of people around the world (on five continents and counting!) have experienced the power and magic of visual journaling with me at retreats and in workshops.
The Creative Sketchbook gives you the most powerful and potent tools that I rely on every day in my life and work, and that have joyfully empowered so many other creative souls. I can’t wait to share this with you!
When I began The Creative Sketchbook workshop, I was stressed and tired! I was beating myself up for not accomplishing enough with my art, for spinning my wheels, for not being good enough at pretty much everything I was doing (from breathing to creating…like I said, I was stressed!).
I felt guilty for taking the time and spending the money. But Lisa started us gently, and within about 15 minutes, I was totally over that. It was an amazing, meditative, enlightening experience. I gave in to being in the moment, being accepting of whatever feelings cropped up, and using inquiry to dig deeper, to discover what was really going on.
The Creative Sketchbook is now a regular part of my artistic practice. It helps me clarify goals and identify resistance, and to really visualize and commit to where I want to go and what I want to accomplish. — Susan Rochester
