About This Class



As an artist, I am constantly challenged as to how to continue creating while holding down a full time job, maintaining 2 websites and donating my time to charity.  We all have so much going on, but creating art is so important too.  It's therapeutic and helps to keep me centered.  Thank goodness for technology!  My tablet is always with me so it's been aid in keeping me going with many of my art projects.  

I have recently discovered a new experience in painting the universe.  In depicting the stars, moons, planets and nebulae, I feel as though I am floating out there somewhere away from all of the hustle of daily life.  In this class, I'll share with you, my process and how I portray the universe on my digital art app Art Studio by Lucky Clan.  Feel free to follow along with me on your own app, with a fine art medium or download Art Studio for yourself.  

This class is for beginners or advanced artists.  I can't wait to see your projects and your take on representing the universe.  Project details are in the My Project section of the class.  Feel free to reach out to me with any questions you might have in the Community section.  I would also be grateful if you would leave me a review so I know how I am doing.  

Happy trails!
