Her life-long pursuit
Ever since she can remember, Lisa Bisbee has longed to be creative. She is now pursuing an art education venture.
When Lisa was a child, her mom gave her the book, “Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain,” written by Betty Edwards. From the exercises in the book, Lisa found that the act of being creative pulled her into a zone where time and space disappeared along with any other snag that she had been dealing with.
She explains, “It’s like a respite, a bit of breathing space. For years, I used it from my toolbox of coping skills when dealing with stressful scenarios such as hurricanes or COVID. If it can work for me, it can work for you.”
In the midst of making something, the creative act itself dissipates any difficulties she has been holding onto. Her intention is to motivate people to experience the same sort of reprieve from stress as they enter into their own creative zone.
How do the students gain skills?
She offers a wide range of courses in the arts, including drawing, painting, sculpture, mixed media, and creative software.
What happens during class?
Lisa focuses on interactions. She demonstrates the creative activity with Q&A chats and discussions of art history. Students can upload photos of their artwork, and Lisa provides a positive critique of student artwork.

When do the broadcasts air?
Bisbee broadcasts daily. She explains, “The goal to broadcast daily was born as I watched a movie about Julia Childs. A dear friend suggested that I develop a similar approach in my life, parallel to the plot in the movie. It took years to develop skills in a digital world, and now here I am broadcasting on a daily regimen via YouTube.”
