    i’m excited to take this class. I do nothing creatively on my iPad, so I am looking forward to learning everything I possibly can. I don’t have a lot of experience with different mediums so am out of my comfort zone. Let the learning begin.

    The reason I would like to win the course ( #PAINT&PIXELSGIVEAWAY ) would be to paint a self portrait using the apps and all the instructions and wisdom of @rlaws2 and @ivynewport #paintandpixels
    To win the 10″x10″canvas of a great piece by @rlaws2 would be delirious .
    There is also $10.00 Apple gift card and aAdonit Jot 4 Stylus included in the #paint&pixelsgiveaway #GIVEAWAY

  15. Dira

    i can’t wait to experiment with technology and paints… It’s very intriguing to me!!! Wooohooo!!

  16. The digital art here is amazing. I use a “Pencil” stylus on my Ipad mini along with the Sketchbook Express and Paper apps. I am sharing this on FB.

  17. Jay

    I’m so excited for this class. I’m most looking forward to using my iPad to get brave by trying new techniques without the fear of ruining a piece. There is something so lovely about the many layers that can be added to achieve depth and emotion. Plus, I’m a huge Sarah Jarrett fan so anything that will give me a taste of what she creates has got to be good.

  20. I’d love to learn a new technique on my IPad! Thanks for the opportunity!

  21. What an awesome and generous givaway!
    I have only used my iPad to make a few simple line drawings using Paper 53.
    This e-course is a much needed opportunity to be able to learn how to really use my iPad and the drawing apps. It will get out of my comfort zone of thinking I can only create art the traditional way using paint, pencil and paper….

    Just shared your link on my FB page as well.

  22. jennifermrussell

    I am so excited for this class! I can’t wait to learn how to use my ipad creatively, I have been playing witha couple apps you mentioned and I am loving it. I am excited to learn how to use the ipad as a creative tool, s it will be something to keep the creative juice ls flowing when I am unable to get to my paints. Thanks so much for posting this giveaway, I also shared it on Facebook.

  23. jennifermrussell

    I am very excited to learn to use my ipad creatively. I have tried a little before and usually didn’t like the result. I tried a couple apps you mentioned and loved it. I think I could get lost in it for hours, and am excited to have another creative outlet and a way to create on days that were to busy to get to my physical paints :) thanks so much for this opportunity. I also shared your post on Facebook.

    • jennifermrussell

      Oops didn’t mean to post twice, I had some issues,logging in to WordPress and didn’t see my first one, sorry for that

  24. Oh my gosh I would love to win this, I have an iPad and have been experimenting using it for art and this would be wonderful to take it to the next level.

  25. I hope to learn the basics. I’m a beginner in digital art and would love to be able to know where I could go with my artwork.
    I shared your info on instagram, and twitter.

  26. I use traditional media for my art, but I’m very familiar with using Photoshop for my photography. I’ve always been intrigued by the idea of making digital art, but it seemed so intimidating to me. I was thrilled when I came across this course! I’m hoping to learn what apps to use, and just how to go about making some of these gorgeous artworks and then transferring them back to canvas. :)

  27. Andrea_Bakewell

    I am so excited for this class and all that I will learn. I think the options will be endless :) Thanks so much for the giveaway. I have shared on FB.

  28. Andrea_Bakewell

    Just shared on Pinterest too!! My fingers are crossed :)

  29. Cathy Garrett

    What which iPad do you recommend ?

  30. Hi, I can hardly wait for the class to start! I’ve had ProCreate on my iPad for a while and have made a few attempts at using it but haven’t stuck with it, so the class will be perfect to give me some structure to my learning. Looking forward to bringing some of my sketches into the app and “painting” them. Will be great for travelling when I don’t want to carry a lot of art supplies.

  31. Andrea_Bakewell

    Just shared and commented on Instagram too!! Thanks again for the giveaway!

  32. I’m super excited for this class to begin. I only recently dipped my toes into creating digital art and it’s so fun! But, there is a lot to learn. I’m looking forward to learning the tips and tricks that you gals have learned from your trials and errors!

    Ps. Shared on Facebook.

  33. I have always been a “creative dabbler”, and feel as if this class is finally bringing together all the dabbling I’ve been doing in the last five years: painting, drawing, photography, mobile photography, and my own poetry. I’ve felt strongly that my iPad/apps could somehow bring this all together into a very satisfying form of creative expression, and this class is like a dream come true. I’m so excited! Thanks for the chance to win some wonderful things! I will now share this blog post on Facebook. :)

  34. Kelly

    I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to have these amazing prizes. I can’t wait to start this class!! September feels like it’s too far away :) I’m hoping to learn how to draw in the details once I’ve added all the layers and filters that I love. I also can’t wait to learn how to draw faces in procreate. I currently use my iPhone and iPad to create some magical art pieces. I love digital arts!! And I shared this on my Facebook page.

  35. Jenny

    I am really hoping to win this for my friend who is a stay at home mother of 3. Luckily her new found love of art over the past few years has really brought some much needed balance to her life. I’m happy to help support my friend in any way possible!

  46. This is a fantastic giveaway! I am excited about the upcoming class, and hope to learn some creative ways to integrate some of the different mediums I work in.

I will be posting your class on Facebook and Instagram.
