“Lisa Call’s Abstraction workshop has been the best online class that I have ever taken. Not only is the class professionally presented but the content and feedback provided by Lisa have been excellent.”

My Intention

I have created over 350 textile paintings in the past 10 years, using the techniques, exercises and studio methodology I will be teaching in my workshops.

In addition to my art concepts and techniques, we will be dipping into some of the mindsets and motivation topics that I speak about on makebigart.com. Although we will focus on creating art, I believe in teaching to the whole artist, not just your sewing machine or paint brush.

My intention is to provide students with the vocabulary and tools they will need to go back to their studios with their own ideas and move forward with confidence.

I love teaching. In my computer science graduate school years, I wanted to complete my PhD so I could become a professor, as I very much enjoyed teaching the introductory computer science classes as a Teaching Assistant.

Life took some unexpected and most wonderful turns. Instead of teaching computer science, I’m now teaching art and art business workshops.

I offer both in person and online learning opportunities and over the next few years will build up a catalog of workshops in both areas so please check back for updates from time to time.

I’ve also compiled a list of publications, where you can read and learn about my techniques and mindsets for those times when an interactive workshop isn’t a good fit.

I have been teaching online workshops since 2012.  You can see samples of former students work and read their thoughts on my workshops on my alumni directory.
