Hello and Welcome!

✿ Do you love arts and crafts?

Are you inspired by Mother Nature and being surrounded by soothing sounds and beauty?
Would you value some "me" time, to explore your creativity and enjoy letting go of the stresses of the day?

"This class is excellent! I’m working thru it slowly, and I’m thrilled with my completed projects. I still have quite a few to look forward to, and I do a little better with each one."

"I have taken the online dotting class by LL Creative Studios. I loved the projects. The instruction was clear and easy to follow."

Lisa Claspill Young

"Worth every penny IMO!! This online course gives you access to very useful techniques (basic to advanced) and lots of advanced topics (i.e. mixing paints, making your own stones, gradients, etc.), and then there are the projects! I am a “hands on” learner and this course is just that! She tells and/or shows you everything in an easy to learn fashion."

Mary Beth Hardie

"I have been in the course for about 3 months and the information LLC creative studios provides is clear and informative."
