I would love to learn more about photo transfers...on a large scale! Thinking about visiting you for another class, Alisa. Miss the Oregon coast!

Linda said...

Would love to learn the art of loosening up and letting creativity flow more easily...

Nicole Maki said...

Hey Alisa,

Thanks so much for the chance to win.

I want to learn how to draw faces that are more expressive and realistic and less cartoonish.

I'd also love to learn how to use my Pan Pastels in a range of ways. It seems like they have fine art applications and mixed-media applications but no one is demonstrating a middle-ground way of using them.

Oh boy! I'm going to work on my hubby to see if we can spend our anniversary at Seaside so I can come take your Graffiti Remix class!!! YAY!!
I would love to just learn how you do it all!!! Hee hee! Seriously though, I believe my hubby just bought me your stamp carving class for my b-day! YAY!!! Can't wait to doodle some designs & carve them out! thanks for your wonderful, affordable, never expire classes!! You rock!

Madeline Rains said...

THere's so much I want to learn! I love your whimsical paintings, even though I don't usually like that style, and would love to learn that as well as how to work on a huge scale and more about color mixing and stamp carving... Thanks for the chance.

Caatje said...

Free motion stitching! I tried and failed miserably. I must be doing something wrong. I will keep at it and no doubt figure it out (I don't give up that easily, too stubborn), but a very clear step by step instruction would be wonderful.

Denise said...

I have always wanted to learn how to carve my own stamps and use them for stamping on fabric. I'd love to take all your classes but I would probably start with Carving your Own Stamps, or Beneath the Surface. Thank you SO, SO, much!!

Hi Alisa!
I got back into sketching and doodling as stress relief. Your blog has given me a lot of inspiration! I have become very good at drawing what others have created. It's time I learn how to let me own imagination guide my sketching.

Thank you!

~ Sangeetha
PS - Love your sketchbook videos!

studioGypsy said...

Wish i could take an in-person class with you!! Oregon seems so beautiful! And why not try for a free class giveaway. You are just a doll to do this. It would be hard to pick. All your stuff is amazing! Xoxo

Janet said...

I would like to work of my multilevel collages with paint and drawing. I'd like to include writing and stamping with that. Your graffiti class looks awesome too!

Yanina said...

lulu moonwood murakami said...

Hi Alisa - I'd like to learn how to use watercolors to incorporate into my mixed media.

corinne said...

Woo hoo! I would love to learn stamp carving. I have Geninne's book and love looking at it, but that's all I've done. I also would love to learn more about mixed media dolls - where you make the face from one medium and sew the body and then use another medium for the clothes or accessories. xo

Marla said...

Hi Alisa....
I would love to perfect successful layering of multiple mediums... I love to layer and would love your expertise! Thanks for all your passion...

Kimberly Fasone said...

Wow! What would I choose? You have so many wonderful courses that you offer! Well, if I must choose one it would be beneath the surface with layer techniques:)

rebecca doane said...

I would love to improve at 'stream of consciousness' drawing/sketching. I have such a hard time with it!! My brain freezes up and that's that. All the sudden i can't even squeeze out a dot. :/

Sheila said...

Drawing, I so admire your sketches and wish I could draw.

Rachel said...

I would love to learn about how to loosen up more. I'm so used to drawing what I see realistically that I have a hard time trying to let go of that.

Kristen (Creative Stash) said...

I would love to learn how to loosen up in my work and successfully add type without the need to paint it over umphteen times before I think it looks "right". thanks for the giveaway Alisa!

Stephanie Booth said...

Alisa, you are such an inspiration! I love your positivity! I'd love to learn the techniques of working with watercolours.

Kelley said...

I've always wanted to be good at drawing, but I lack the confidence to just do it. Maybe with instruction from you, I could learn to be a little more forgiving of my lack of skill! Thanks for the giveaway!

Shine on!
Kelley

Theresa said...

Printing & painting designs onto fabric is a technique I am interested in. I would love to take your larger than life ode to nature or whimsy class. I'd narrow it down if I won. Thanks for the chance. You can email me @ Dearcreatives at g mail dot com if I win.
xx fingers crossed thank you!

Rachel said...

I want to learn how to think BIGGER! I need to get over my mental restriction that keeps me drawing in little tiny bits. I want to get my patterns out there and BIG... I want to cover bigger canvases, clothing... a wall!

Hello Alisa
I have learned so much from you already by following your blog and taking a few of your online courses. I am always inspired by you! Thanks for your generosity in all the techniques and projects you share. However if I have to choose techniques represented from your courses in order to qualify for this draw I choose watercolors and doodling. I choose doodling because I can practice it anytime and anywhere. I choose watercolors because they are so lovely and I am inspired by your use of them in sketchbooks. I would absolutely love to win one of your online courses. I have already taken both of your sketchbook courses and looooved them!
Here's hoping!

Stacy Kristine said...

Angie said...

I would love to learn large-scale painting techniques! I work small so often, that when I finally get a large canvas, I have touble 'enlarging' my thoughts.

Corina said...

I would love to learn how to handle water colours. I never got the hang of them. I love oil but I can't use it because of the strong smells so I stuck to acryl. I wish I could make water colours work.

P.S. I love your blog.

Little Green Studio said...

Thanks for the giveaway! I want to learn to paint on a large scale - big! I'd like to get over my fears of painting big. Would that be considered a technique?

Denise Mulligan said...

Hi Alisa,
Exciting new classes here. I would love to learn pen and ink drawing. I love simple drawings and I tend to complicate them. Thanks for the chance to win.

shawnb said...

I would love to learn how to make my drawings have fluidity, and movement. I stick to simple shapes like circles and hearts, because anything else just looks so stiff. So inspired by your sketches!

Leah said...

I would love to learn how to take inspiration from everyday life and transfer it onto the page, like you do with nature.

Ditsy Bird Designs said...

I would love to be more free with my art - I'm very into the details and am often hunched over my work making sure it is just so. I would love to be able to enter the mindset where I could get a canvas some paints and just get messy and loose with the creative process...and not overthink it.
I love your blog and find your relaxed style highly inspirational.

Deb said...

Ever since I bought your book "Sew Wild" I have wanted to take your "Beneath the Surface" class! (Maybe I'll get lucky one day!)

Elaine Hill said...

I just stumbled across your blog from a Pinterest find and FELL IN LOVE! Your creative style has a direct link to my heart. I'd love to learn more on stamp carving (like many others). I'm constantly on the hunt for fun things to do with my five year old, a little budding artist in the works. I'm looking forward to your inspiration and posts!

Jen Whitaker said...

I'd like to learn to work with watercolors. And to work on large-scale art.

Holly Eva Gay said...

beautiful Alisa
I love mostly how you get creative with recyclingI would love to see more of how you create from recycled materials I love the cereal boxes and cardboard boxes - its truly honouring the imagination and respecting our planet. xx
Love Hollyeva.

donna said...

Alisa, , I so love looking into your sketchbook. If I could have some insight into how your creations come to be, that would be worth more to me than $50.

Karla said...

I like doodles. I was doing a few on my sketchbook, following your advice "do it around 10 minutes daily". So I would like to take this class, to learn something new. Thank you so much Alisa!!!

Chel said...

abstract painting- all out, no holds barred!

Katie said...

Hi Alisa, I'm playing with watercolors ( the beginning of my newest romance!) and having fun. But I'd love to learn some tricks and technique. I actually popped over here tonight to see if you might be offering some sketchbook classes this summer. :) xotammy

Tammy Gilley said...

Hi Alisa, I'm playing with watercolors (the beginning of a whole new love affair!), and am having fun. But I feel like I'm ready for some technique. I popped over here tonight to see if you were teaching your sketchbook class this summer. :) xotammy

I would love to learn how to incorporate inspirations from everyday life into my artwork in a less obvious way. I would also love to learn how to master watercolours, they really frustrate me!!

Little Blue Feathers said...

Thank you for offering the giveaway! I have never taken a painting class and right now I would love to learn watercolors. I have watercolor pencils I dabbled in the other day but couldn't quite get the hang of it. I would love to take one of your watercolor classes!

I'd like to take inspiration from your expressive freedom to use various surfaces on which you impart your art.

ginigin said...

I have been longing to start up a daily sketchbook practice, so that is my primary focus now. Need something to jumpstart myself. I'd also love to learn to carve stamps. Maybe once I get a sketchbook going, I would have a place to play with stamps. Thanks for your generous offer and unending inspiration!

Lesley Glenn said...

Graffiti Art would be my first choice.
Or your version of whimsy.
Love your teaching style.

Jeannie said...

I would love to learn to doodle. This might sound silly to most, but I've never been comfortable doodling. I love the freeness of doodling, but when I try, my hand and brain freeze up.

Lidia Baltazar Salazar said...
