NEW class Redefine Creativity and a GIVEAWAY!

My next online class Redefine Creativity goes live this Friday, August 22nd and to celebrate I am giving away 10 free spots to the class! Below you will find all the class information and to enter to win a free spot, scroll all the way to the bottom of the post for details!






While I had been making and selling art since I was a kid, my life changed back in 2005 when I decided to rip a canvas painting off the stretcher bars and sew it into a purse for a wedding I was attending. This moment completely changed the direction of my creative career. Suddenly I discovered a new process- painting canvas and remixing it into all kinds of fashion accessories. 


                                          rip painting from Alisa Burke on Vimeo.

Through this process, I learned very quickly that I loved finding new ways to redefine creativity (heck its the concept that my entire business is built on)! Everything from using alternative supplies - to making art on unique surfaces - to finding ways to break the rules, I have been on a non stop mission to get creative in unconventional ways. 




This class is all about finding ways to redefine YOUR creativity. I will demonstrate all of my favorite techniques and concepts- from working with canvas to drawing and painting on unique objects to using simple supplies to make beautiful art to using mixed media to decorate your surroundings, I have created a totally unique class that walks the line between art and craft. Get ready for lots of techniques, art/craft projects and tons of inspiration to redefine your own creativity.




Redefine Creativity is structured into 5 lessons.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT SUPPLIES: This class like all of my classes, does NOT have a required supply list. Instead I will be sharing the supplies that I like to use and then give you a variety of options and inspiration to use supplies that work best for your process and your budget.


To enter to win a spot in the class- 

Leave me a comment
Tell me your favorite supply to work with
I'll randomly select 10 people and will announce the winners on Friday!
Good luck!

I love following your blog, it is better than a cup of coffee in the mornings. I have dreamed of attending one of your classes for sometime now, but since I live in WV it is just to far for that to happen. So winning a spot in this online class would be the next best thing and a dream come true. I love so many supplies, but really like to suprise myself with making art out of things that other people could not imagine.

Sue @ A Colourful Canvas said...

Ooooh, choosing a favourite art supply is like being asked to choose a favourite child, or in my case, a favourite cat. Watercolour paints had me at hello many years ago. And they still capture my heart!

Benita Joy said...

my favourite supply is POTATOES!! I love stamping with pptatoes..on everything :) but in terms of art supplies, I'd probably have to say watercolours. Benita

Stephanie Bernell said...

A good felt tip pen that I can also use as watercolor.

Sara Martin said...

Meghan Thimjon said...

Hmm acrylics and spray inks at the moment! But love everything I can get my hands on!

Christina Szegedi said...

Yeay, what a wonderful class! I love all your classes and would be so happy to win a spot. You are such an inspiration in my life Alisa, and when I found you online, just a little while ago, immediately new doors opened for my own creativity to flow in new directiones. Following you I could see in what new ways I can use my creative gifts and I could "REDEFINE MY CREATIVITY". So; I use this opportunity to say a big thank you. It's hard to choose just one favorite art supply becuase I love everything whait what I can be creative. But I nominate ACRYLIC PAINT as my favorite one (oh gosh, now I hear all my other art supplies screaming "what about me? What about me?...) :-)

merkusje said...

My current favourite supply to work with is cardboard, I recently took a collagraph course and discovered that cardboard can be used in all sorts of ways in collagraph; as a plate, as an element, it can be ripped, cut, separated into layers; its uses are endless, and it's pretty much free !

Liz said...

Great opportunity, I would love to follow one of your classes!! My favorite art supplies to work with are colored pencils.

Thanks for the give away!

Amy Garrett said...

Alisa- I'm so excited to be entering a season with a blessing of time to pause be still and reflect on where God is calling me next-- as a trained art teacher with an affinity for tech and mixed media I've just moved to Shanghai and am holding Ephesians 3:20 close to my heart- essentially reminding me that God is capable of things beyond anything I could imagine. It's really a season for me to redefine who I am artistically, professionally and personally...

Honestly, I love whatever supply I have on hand... but I can't beat recycling toilet paper tubes or bubble wrap. I can't wait til my shipment arrives with everything wrapped in brown paper and bubble wrap!! I'll be set for ages with the amount of wrapping coming my way. Currently, until then, I'm relying on my travel watercolor tube brush and mini wc set that fits in my purse and goes with me everywhere. Learning the new and extensive art supply market here in Shanghai will be fun- different than India but equally affordable! Yippee! Would love to win a spot in your class! Thanks for the opportunity :)

Roosnans said...

What a great change! I love my acrylic paint! And my lino-cuts!

Potiron said...

Great class objective!!!! Would love to win a spot in this giveaway...

My favorite supply would be a needle with any kind of thread to sew (and embroider) whatever I get my hands on, be it fabric or anything that can be pierced by a needle.... alternatively, the sewing machine is also my bff :D....

klepsidraes said...

Alisa eres una artista muy valiente y atrevida. Creo que todo gran arte debe basarse en esos dos conceptos.
Gracias por compartir con nosotros todo lo que haces; también eres generosa.

Barbara said...

I love working with everything that doubles as fabric, plastic bags, shower curtains, I have yet to get my hands on some tyvek to sew with. I wold love to get the chance to participate in this class.

Joan of ART at Linden Line Designs said...

My favorite supply is Acrylic paint! Love working with it.

Another awesome giveaway. Thanks for the chance.

P.S. I actually won a giveaway last November for one of your beautiful scarves, and I sent you three emails letting you know I was one of the winners, however, sadly :( I haven't heard back from you. Your blog is one of my favorites to visit - has been for a while now. I have taken many of your online classes and love each and every one of them.


Carolyn said...

My favorite supply is a black PITT pen. I use it in art journaling, with watercolors, to sketch designs for embroidery or quilting, to map out creative ideas, and, of course, to doodle! It is the most flexible and I always keep it in my purse with a small notebook so I can get some creative energy flowing whether I'm riding a bus or waiting in line. I'd love to take your class! Just love all your colorful designs!

Helen said...

Thank you for your giveaway - it's very generous of you. I have lots of favourite supplies and one of them is the palette knife - I love the textured affects you can get with it in various ways.

joaleks said...

At the moment my favourite is acrylic paint.
Great idea for a new class!

svitlana.blogspot.com said...

My favorite supply is sand, glitter. Thank you Alica.

Corina said...

Oh my God, this is so amazing and so timed. I have been feeling I need to find my way in my creative path and this would be so amazingly helpful.

I love painting on various surface, but I guess acrylics take the winning spot.
I adore oil paints but I can't handle the turpentine smell though.

Thank you so much for this opportunity.

vintagerockchick said...

I love simple printing on fabric, so sticky backed funky foam, and polystyrene is near the top of the list, as is my new gelli print plate. But then I love acrylic paints, and inktense pencils and Sharpie pens ...
You didn't really expect me to pick just one, did you. Oh, and my sewing machine, or I couldn't wear my printed fabrics. Finger crossed that I'm a lucky winner x

Diana Sh Palma said...

I'm absolutely in LOVE with your your classes! Thank you so very much for the possibility to win your new class.

Özge B. said...

Hello Alisa, my favourite supplies are acrylic paints, paper and fabric. I try to produce my own stamps, stencils and mark making tools from found objects. Your online course seems the challenge i need to develop my art adventure. Thank you...

M Alexander said...

Hmm...although I can't live without paint or fabric, I guess I'd have to say my first love affair with color came from pastels. Love the way you can smudge and draw with your fingers in a painterly way...thank you for the opportunity to share and learn.

Hi Alisa, my favourites are acrylics (paint and ink), watercolours and collage. I love to read your blog and i already took 2 of your online classes.

My favorite supply is my hand to touch and combine all sorts off materials. I like to sew, paint, draw, diy. Sometimes I'm doing art.. my nine year old daughter comes along and want to do like me... and is doing much better. I like to share the liberty and freedom I feel when creating with my family. I like your blog, sometimes it's funny to see you things I did or I'm doing nearly at he same time with other materials. This gives allways the chance to rethink about the way you did your own. Would love to wina place in class! Greetings Kathi

Stacey Scherer said...

My favorite supply is, hands down, bubble wrap. I hoard bubble wrap. It adds texture to just about anything, it is easy to find, free or very inexpensive, and disposable.

alarmcat said...

my fav is watercolor. this sounds like an interesting class!!

Hannah TJ said...

I was just wondering where you'd got the fabric prints from when you explained that you took a canvas and used it. I know it's silly that it surprised me because I've used canvas before to sew with but the thought of painting it is crazy! Yet, the thought of painting it when it's stapled on a board is normal. Following your blog has been such a delight for my creativity. I love your style so much.

So even if I don't win, I wanted to say thank you for sharing everything that you share. It's amazing.

Oh and... Fine pen is my favourite thing to use.

Denise said...

Gouache or fabric. Recently I beaded part of a wedding dress, and discovered it's pretty fun, too!

I'm a dabbler, so my favorite supplies change every week or so. But my current favorite supply is a set of colored Sharpie Pens (the kind that work perfectly in a homemade travel journal, as they don't bleed through paper!) Your new class looks like so much fun! Thanks for this great giveaway opportunity!

Melissa @ Sweet As Texas Honey said...

Watercolor and yarn all the way! I love to paint and use my handmade drop spindle to spin art yarn.

Friederike von dem Bussche said...

Whenever i am not creating with virtual pixels i love to mess with Yarn, Sharpies, Pencils and Copics. Would love to attend your class, i love your work and inspirations! Cheers from Hamburg.

Jeannine Douglas said...

My favorite supply is watercolor. I am definitely a newbie when it comes to art and creativity. Thank you for sharing this class and your creativity.

Samantha said...

Because often my art supply budget is zero in a month, I look for stuff on hand to reuse as art supplies. I found a ton of paint samples in our garage and have been using those to paint with. It might never hang in a gallery, but I'm sure having fun with it.

debbig said...

thanks for the opportunity to take this class. I could use a little creativity as I do the same things over and over. My favorite medium is any kind of paint. The messier the better!

anja said...

i love painting on canvas, on fabric, on any surface....i always hop between drawing, printing and textile arts and i would love it to follow your online class and see your way of approaching the matter.

I am in an encaustic phase, loving all that I can do with wax on boards and canvas... and all the great stuff I can combine with it to create wonder, beauty, art.

TesoriTrovati said...

Oh.My.Word. My creative life force seems to have been snatched this year with a host of family issues (like the decision to place my 68-year old mother in an Alzheimer's care unit) that has consumed almost every waking moment - and beat down my creative side - for the past six months. I am ready to reclaim that part of me, but have been so overwhelmed as to how to get back to it. I am also ready for new directions and a change that will help me blossom. This class might be just what I need. I have found an affinity for polymer clay, but I came to it as more of a canvas for my creations. I love to paint it, build miniature wearable sculptures, carve my own texture plates and push the limits of this material. I have wanted to do some doodling, Zentangling, that sort of thing on the polymer clay but haven't figured that out (I am completely self-taught and I like it that way). When people ask me where I studied for my jewelry design I tell them I have a G.G.A.... (that's God Given Ability...and I am not afraid to use it!). I need to grasp that feeling again as I have felt that it has been chipped away this year. You are such an inspiration and I would be honored to be in your class! Thank you for the generous chance. Enjoy the day! Erin

loving using stencils with paints, inks and sprays.

I am currently doing your sketchbook delight course. Love it! So easy to follow and so inspiring! My favourite supply at the moment is watercolour pencils. I am just loving the portability of them and the bright colours available. Finishing the drawing off with some sharpies or artline pens also looks awesome. :)

Meghan said...

My favorite supply to work with at the moment are Gelly Roll pens and Micron pens, but it changes based on what I feel like creating. It could be my camera and lightroom or fabric and my sewing machine. Thanks for the chance! I'd love to win :)

Anjanette Myren said...

I can't say I have a favorite…I get bored to quickly. My favorite thing to do, is to use multiple mediums and mix them all together!

just a scrap of paper said...

My favorite supply is paper, all kinds of paper! Thank you for being so generous.

Frontier Mom said...

I'm sort of a faber castell addict....I love pens...and your sweet generosity!

Holly S said...

My favorite supply has to be fibers...yarn, embroidery thread, sewing cotton and metallic threads, traffics, ribbon, lace oh and I also love watercolor pencils...hard to decide!

Katherine Jeanne Wood said...

CeCe said...

Oh my goodness...so many supplies I love, love, love....of late it has been drop cloths and vintage linens. Thanks for the opportunity! You always amaze me.

Monica Owen said...

My favorite supplies are whatever I have on hand - inexpensive craft paints, old books, old clothes, old paintings, old jewelry, stones, branches, etc. thanks for this generous opportunity!

Jess Eveland said...

Favorite art supply is acrylic paint. I feel like it can do just about anything! And it's pretty cheap for those, I wonder if this will work projects.

Alison said...

Love your blog. Love your work. I need some creative inspiration! I love working with acrylics and paint markers. :)

KellBelle said...

This week, my favorite art supply to play with has been my colored inks. Vibrant color like acrylics, the mobility of watercolor. That may change tomorrow, but they are my fun place today! Love your work. You continually inspire!

Chai Dackermann said...

My Favorite art supplies are mostly Faber Castell Products like Gelatos and Pitt pens as they are versatile. I also like to use Sharpies as they are cheaper than copics and other brands.

Cathy V. said...

Definitely my favorite supply is leather!

Ms. Becky said...

does my camera count as my favorite "supply" to work with? thanks for the chance to participate in one of your awesome classes!

Twist of Pink said...

My favorite supply is a waterproof black pen. It is the basis from which to build from and I can always have with me. I enjoy you blog almost daily and your creativeness is really unparallelled. Thanks for the opportunity to win a class and keep up the creaive good works!

Jennifer Richardson said...

Hi Alisa:) I'm a professional gardener so my favorite supplies are the cuttings and gleanings
from my time on my knees or in the trees. I love bits and snippets of nature, folding them into
designs and found treasure art. Excited about the possibility of taking your new class!
Love and huge grace for a very large creative joy,
Jennifer

My favorite supply: my imagination.

Judith Talley said...

I would love to take one of your classes. Your work is so inspiring. My favorite supply is any kind of paint and my favorite tools are my fingers. Nothing blends or smears like those.

Michelle said...

favorite tool is my hands…hands down. I love to finger paint. My favorite supply right now is Golden flow acrylic. I love how it spreads and the colors are intense. Yummmm.

Nithya Sundararaman said...

I am all about simplicity and hence your blog has always been an inspiration of how to be creative with few supplies, to use and reuse existing products. If your blog counts as a supply, then yes, your blog is a favorite supply :)
Apart from that, paper and fine tip black pen and a bold tip black pen would be my pick.

misses free said...

my favorite supply is sound
i record sound and noise around me and transform it to sidespecific installations
your blog is awesome and such an inspiration!!!
:)

Angie said...

Looks like so much fun! My favourite supply to work with is soft pastels - they look like little gems of colour just waiting to be laid down!! Unfortunately, they're not as durable as paint - but just as much fun :)

Giddings Art said...

It is very hard to choose just one....but I think it would be my graphite pencils. They go everywhere I go. I also love working with watercolors, Pitt pens, fibers of all kinds....you name it! Thank you for a chance to win a place in your class. I know it will be packed with inspiration!

DianaDArtist said...

My fav supply, (like choosing a fav child- ugh!) acrylic paint. No, colored pencil. No, oil paint! No, ink. Wait!... Oh dear.

Unknown said...

Pigma pen, watercolors and the waterbrush

Uncanny Festoon said...

Love this class idea! My favorite supply to work with is my bits drawer. I make jewelry and the bits drawer can move me in different directions.

funkycrafter said...

Bright markers and mists are my favorites. Would like to visit the beach and find one of your sand drawings. The beaches of northern Oregon are so magical anyway, so finding the flowers would be frosting on the cake.

Nolwenn said...

It is possible to pick just one supply ? argh, possible not ;)
But I would say acrylic paint as it is the base of my art, but I am not a Mixed Media artist for no reason: too many great supplies out there to explore and play with.

Thanks for the giveaway. Your class looks amazing !

Debbie Stip said...

Hi Alisa!

well this too sounds like a class I should take ;-) Loved your other classes, they're just so packed with inspiration and I love it that it is set up so freely that you can take ik any moment and do it all your own way using your tips&tools, perfect structure for me!

Anyway at the moment we've just moved houses and lot's of my supplies are still in boxes, so my favorite supply at the moment is my watercolor set combined with a waterbrush. I can take them anywhere and be creative even now the rest of my supplies are still unpacked....

Would love to win a free ticket, but will be adding this class to my wishlist anyhow!
~Debbie

Katie said...

Thank you for your generosity! A favorite supply is my round paintbrush.

Dawn Tappen said...

Painted canvas as fabric...awesome! My favorite medium is watercolor.

cindy b. said...

I've always worked with fabric but would love to try canvas. After all it's just another fabric. Thanks so much!

DebP said...

LOVE all art supplies. Favorite are watercolor and paper! Thank you for the opportunity!

Lisa Hamilton said...

Favorite is stamps! hand carved & funky. I would love to take your new class. I've taken a few of your workshops and all good stuff! Happy day!
