How do I get a GUI from an OpenStack instance?

I am new to OpenStack and I have trouble understanding how cloud instances and connections to instances work.

Right now, I have devstack installed on a computer. I have created a Fedora instance using the OpenStack dashboard. I am able to ssh into the instance using the terminal and the instance's key pair.

I am pretty sure it is possible to access terminal through the ssh connection and run commands. However, I want to know if I can connect to the instance from a completely separate computer and actually see the Fedora GUI, apps, etc and have the ability to actually use the OS normally.

I apologize if this question is trivial, but it's something I haven't understood since I began using OpenStack.
