Welcome to the Thursday Club!

"Out of all of the mixed media painting techniques and supplies I’ve ever tried, the one thing I always come back to is making sure I’m having fun with whatever I’m painting, so in this project, we’re going to loosen up and experiment with lots of art supplies. You’ll learn, step by step, how to add a whimsical character to your painting, using simple shapes. We’ll also focus on taking a sketch and using it to create a mixed media painting, then adding layers to make it all fit together. This project is perfect for beginners or anyone looking to let go and have more fun with their artwork, especially if you feel like you don’t have a lot of time." - Juliette Crane. Welcome to June! Save the date for Thursday, May 23 @ 10 am PT. Remember If you can't join us live, no worries. Thursday Club members get access to a replay video recording of the Lesson, and ALL Creative Lessons past and future.

The Inspiration behind The Thursday Club: As a working artist and teacher, with a growing business and personal demands, who wants to get back to regular creating...I was thinking...

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 Diane Bleck.


June's Guest Teacher

Thursday, June 27, 2019 @ 12:30 pm PT

"Wild and Free Painting" with Juliette Crane.  Join us for our LIVE lesson @ 12:30 pm PT on Thursday June 27.

Thursday Club this month takes on painting. Enjoy this fun workshop with Juliette Crane.

Diane Bleck, founder of the Doodle Institute, is on a mission to help people tap into their ideas, insights and inspiration through the power of doodling.

As a an online instructor, facilitator & mentor she has inspired thousands of people around the world to UNLOCK YOUR CREATIVITY at Home, School & Work. During her highly acclaimed courses, workshops and events, participants can expect to be engaged in a rich process of collaboration, co-creation and transformation.

Her enthusiasm for her work is contagious.

Accomplishing more in a year than most people do in a lifetime, her energy captivates people, inspires them to take action and keeps them coming back for more.

She has a keen ability to listen, see patterns, assimilate quickly, ask the right question and above all speak the truth leads her to continuously be invited to be a part leadership circles and masterminds.

True story; I met Diane because I danced my way into a conference VIP party {more on that story later} ;)  With a shared passion for inspiring creativity in everyone, Diane was one of my first guests on the Creative Thursday podcast, episode #74. One of the loveliest creatives and teachers I have met, it's an honor to have her join us in The Thursday Club  ~  Marisa

"Thank you so much, Diane! You and the Doodle Friends gave me that extra kick to be braver and more fearless than I've ever been. Much much thanks and gratitude!"

"Diane... a strong supporter and motivator to everything human. 👍👍👍"

"Thanks for doing this! These meet-ups have been super great for helping me set and protect my creative time. So thanks for your lovely, encouraging emails and lessons. :)"


So tell me more about The Thursday Club

You want to be more CREATIVE! You want the time do more of what's most meaningful to you in your life.

Yup that's me!

But you feel like you can't find the time?

You wish you had more encouragement and support, especially on the days when that little voice of self doubt tries to creep in telling you "you're not creative", and questions your talent and abilities to try something new. {how dare it!}

And yet you know how fulfilled you feel when you put those doubts aside, and take the time to make something {and even better, finish a project!}

You know that having a supportive group of creative friends could inspire you and keep you on track, yet you feel more introverted and you'd really rather not leave your house.

You'd love to learn new techniques to get those creative juices flowing again, but you don't have the time to jump into a bunch of courses or figure out who you want to learn from and you'd also really rather not haul your supplies everywhere

You wish you had a consistent way to kickstart your inspiration and keep your creative motivation going, that feels easy and fun {not one more thing on your to do list}

You might also be a successful Creative Entrepreneur, yet now your business demands so much of your time you hardly have a moment to breathe, let alone find the inspiration to create something new.

It really makes you happy to make art for you.

And you love the synergy that happens when you are with a group of kindred spirits and CREATE together!


"I am loving Marisa's community so much. I've had some shifts already! I'm painting up a storm. 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!"

What if

You had a regular creative date, with a wonderful group of supportive friends, and fantastic teachers sharing new techniques and projects with you, and you didn't have to leave your house, or haul all of your art supplies with you? What if the joy you feel from tapping into your creativity more often, makes you happier every day. What if the momentum of feeling more inspired encourages you to do amazing things you've never tried before? What if your life just gets better and better simply because you made time for what is most meaningful to you. I know it's possible because this is how it happened for me, and this is precisely why I feel so passionate about bringing you The Thursday Club.
