Week 38


September's Theme: Back to (Art) School

Week 38: Science

Some people say that art is a science. It sounds weird to take the playful practice of making art and compare it to a field of study that’s based on research, facts and data. The two subjects almost seem like opposites… but science and are art more alike than you think.

Science is the practice of learning about the natural world through observation and experimentation. Sound familiar?! As artists, we observe the world so we can attempt to draw it through our own experiences.

Week 38’s MAE prompt is science! All week, we’ll be observing these prompts and focusing on their texture! So have fun and experiment with different types of textures.

Challenge: Texture Scavenger Hunt

Texture can be perceived two ways: visually or through our sense of touch. The physical world influences how we experience texture in visual art.

The best way to get acquainted with texture is to go on your own texture scavenger hunt. Take out some brushes and create your own texture, or take photos of texture you find in the real world. Make notes about what you could use these textures for in your art!

If you want some Procreate brushes to get you started in your texture scavenger hunt, these brush sets are great places to start! You can also check out my Texturrific Bundle!


Want to get Lisa's advice on your artwork?!

Have you ever looked at a piece of artwork that you just finished and felt like something was a little bit “off,” and you’re not really sure how to go about improving it? This is your chance to ask Lisa for advice on how to improve your artwork!


In our first ever Artwork Advice Session on Tuesday,
September 20th at 4:00 pm PDT, Lisa will give Art Maker’s
Club members personal, hands-on tips, advice, and demonstrations on how they can better their skills. There’s
still time to join and attend this live event!

Weekly Goal

If you only draw one piece this week,

draw some stars (astronomy)!

In this tutorial, I’ll introduce you to the basics of making Procreate brushes. I’ll show you how to make a trio of custom star brushes with special light effects, and we’ll use them to draw some beautiful galaxy art.


Did you know you can use Procreate like a coloring book? Even better — you can use some really cool digital art tricks to have even more fun than traditional coloring. Follow along with me and color one of my FREE coloring pages in this live Procreate tutorial.


How do you make something look shiny or reflective? Learn this easy technique on how to draw and shade surfaces so that they look like metal. Follow along as we draw a cute robot in Procreate and demonstrate this technique.
