Becoming Consciously Creative2021-11-17T20:14:40-05:00

You want more everyday creativity in your life,
and you don’t know where—or how—to start.

You struggle to make time + space for creative play,
and you haven’t found the solution that works for you.

You want to develop your own creative style,
and are overwhelmed by Pinterest + Instagram!

Many of us don’t recognize our innate creativity, or know how to access it…

What if you could learn to embrace your natural creativity, and call it into action anytime, anywhere?

We often feel like we don’t have enough time + space to create freely, and with ease…

Can you imagine having a daily creative practice that feels good + fits easily into your schedule?

We are so distracted by what everybody else is creating and posting on social media…

How would you like to trust your own creative instincts, and find inspiration within?

All of this is possible with the right mindset, dedication + guidance.

This is 100% possible for you… I know this.

My name is Joanne. I’m a small business owner, mom to 20- and 15-year old sons,  juggling all the things, and trying to squeeze every minute out of each day before I collapse into bed… which reminds me, when is the last time I washed the sheets!? Kidding, not kidding…

As a kid, I kept my creativity to myself. My family wasn’t artistic, so I often felt out of place. My sketchbooks full of doodles, and my diaries full of poems and song lyrics, were kept under my bed.

I outwardly expressed my creativity in other ways—decorating my room, playing with make up and hair (I totally wanted to be a hair stylist when I grew up!), and taking my camera out to capture tiny flowers and curious textures.

When the time came to choose my career path, my interests were on the professional side of creativity—interior design, film production, animation. I studied Creative Advertising at my local college and went on to build a business offering brand + publication design for over 25 years.

Add in marriage, kids, moving more than a few times, family illnesses, marriage breakdown, figuring out single life, a few career side-steps and part-time jobs to make ends meet, a global pandemic… and here we are.

For many of those years, I struggled to say no to obligations + expectations (professionals now call this setting boundaries), and I had no clue how to say “Yes!” to making time for myself to replenish my energy and honour my innate needs + desires (now known as self care).

Like most humans, I often felt tapped out, anxious, overwhelmed, afraid, and depressed.

I came super close to burnout a few times… until I found the solution.

A little creative play… every day.

In 2013, somebody close to me made a suggestion when I was feeling particularly flustered. They said “Joe, go open your sketchbook and do some doodling. Clear your mind, take some deep breaths, and just doodle.”

They continued,

“You are always calmer when you doodle.”

Whoa.

They were right! They were 100% right!

That observation was monumental, and my life has changed because of it.

  • Sketchbooks, pens, and paints are now always within reach.
  • TV time has been replaced with creative play time.
  • Trips to the wine store have been replaced with trips to the art store.
  • My dining room has been replaced with my art studio.
  • and… My graphic design contracts have been replaced with creative play events.

Since early 2015, through local and online workshops, classes + retreats, I have guided hundreds of women to discover + nurture their creative energy to the benefit of their overall wellbeing.

You can experience this creative wellbeing, too.

Now before you try to tell me you aren’t creative, hear me out.

Being creative isn’t always about being artistic.

Say what?

Yes. It’s completely true.

For some, it’s going for walks or dancing. For others, it may be photography, cake decorating, or writing. Your creativity might be expressed gardening, sewing, arranging fresh cut flowers, or singing in the shower!

Everyday creativity is about how we intentionally choose to spend our time + energy in order to be present, mindful, fulfilled + true to ourselves.

Making time every day for a little creative play keeps us grounded + centred, playful + inspired, calm + connected—to ourselves and others.

It would be an honour to guide YOU to discover + nurture your creative energy, to fully experience the magical impact daily creative self care can—and will—have on your entire experience.

Here’s what a few participants had to say…

Discover and nurture your creative self.

⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

Becoming Consciously Creative helped me develop a more consistent and mindful practice of exploring creativity in my daily life.

Joe is excellent guide and mentor who packs so many fundamental basics into simple sketchbook and out-in-the-world exercises that you don’t realize how much you are learning.

This course has dramatically changed how I look at my art and the world around me.

—JULIE, Nebraska

Life altering!

⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

The transformation that occurred in six weeks while participating in BCC was ‘quietly phenomenal’.

Not only did I identify and overcome my creative blocks, I became more courageous as I experimented with different mediums. But the biggest transformation was the allowing of ‘unknown’ thoughts to percolate to the surface, and working through these while creating simple shapes and lines.

This course really helped me work through and shape my future direction.

—JOCELYNE, Ontario

Say Hello to a Different You

⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

I am not the same person I was six weeks ago. I don’t want to be a creative, I AM a creative.

There’s a brand new space within myself for my inner child, now healthy and nourished and thriving. I plowed through internal and external barriers to find joy and inspiration and magic in my life. I changed the way that I look at time and the definition of creativity itself, and found myself not lacking in either.

—AMBER, California

Awesome and Wonderful!

⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

Life transforming session to enjoy.

It creates magic in your mind and you need to just enjoy going through the life changing process which is in this course.

—LYDIA, India

Empowering and Inspiring!

⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

One unexpected bonus of BCC was how much I learned about myself. Joanne (Joe) leads you on a journey of discovery in visual art, tools and mediums—some familiar and some tried and true. You will be surprised by what you learn from each week’s assignments. Many times over the six weeks I found myself thinking how I couldn’t wait to do this exercise again, adding in my own creative viewpoint. I think we all felt this way.

Joe is a natural in community building and we are all there to support each other. I want everyone to feel as empowered as I do! We are all creatives and with a little attention and nourishment, we can grow in confidence and learn how important it is to find joy and to play again! This is all about self-care and respect.

You’ve got this! Go for it!

How is Becoming Consciously Creative different from your CAMP membership?2021-11-08T12:34:37-05:00

Becoming Consciously Creative (BCC) is a journey—with a starting point and a finish line. All participants will be on the same path at the same time, guided by me every step of the way. Course materials are published each week, in a specific order.

CAMP is more of a DIY, at-your-own-pace adventure. You can learn more about it at the CAMP website.
Several participants of the September 2021 session were also CAMPers, and some who weren’t joined CAMP once BCC ended.

I love the sound of this… Do I have to be an artist to join?2021-09-14T17:19:15-04:00

Oh my goodness, no! Everybody is welcome to join. Becoming Consciously Creative is more about the process of letting go, becoming mindful and present, exploring new ways of doing + seeing things, and busting through mindset obstacles which are keeping you from enjoying some creative play every day.

I’m not able to join this time… Will you be offering this course again?2021-11-08T11:54:41-05:00

Absolutely! Be sure to join my mailing list for news + dates of future sessions.

Is there a supplies list?2021-11-08T12:27:34-05:00

The full recommended supplies list is available for participants upon registration.

Everything will be easily accessible. Some items you can likely find around your home, others at the dollar store, and others at your favourite art store. I have also provided links to amazon.com and amazon.ca as well, should you wish to order everything you need all at once, straight to your door.

What if I fall behind with the daily activities?2021-11-08T12:26:03-05:00

Each week will include five (5) daily 20-minute exercises to be completed in your art journal, and two (2) days out in the world exploring + observing. You can use these two days to catch up as needed.

Furthermore, you will have lifetime access to the course materials beyond the the six weeks we are actively together.

What time + day will the weekly live check-ins be?2021-11-08T12:00:53-05:00

Each week’s content is published Thursday mornings at 12:01am Eastern—just in time for the weekend!

The live check-ins take place via Zoom halfway through each week, so Mondays at 7pm Eastern.

Replays are available for those who aren’t able to attend live.

“Being creative isn’t about your level of experience…
It’s about the experience itself.” —Joanne T. Lauzon

You have creativity within you…

It’s time to make space for a whole new kind of self care.

Press pause on the expectations and obligations that have you collapsing into bed wondering where your day went. Reconnect with your natural creative energy and finally honour it.

Join me for the next live session of Becoming Consciously Creative… January 19–March 3, 2022.

Registration closes at midnight Eastern, December 19, 2021… Sign up today!
