The Art of Painting with Photoshop
The differences between traditional art and digital art are vast and varied. There is one common link: the knowledge and skill needed to create true art, regardless of the medium. Not only does Sandra Pearce have a working knowledge of traditional and computer based art, she has experience teaching each form as well. She feels that photographers are already comfortable with the tools used in Photoshop, and this enables them to concentrate on the techniques of painting rather than learning a new program.
With so many teachers in the photography world, we all need a good reason to take a class that will help our businesses grow and prosper. Sandra is one only a handful of digital artists who are using Photoshop exclusively to create masterpieces. She teaches you how to use all the tools that Adobe has in Photoshop that can be used for painting. You will learn to use the Mixer Brush to create and blend backgrounds. You will learn to take your images to the next level (and the next!).
Please join Sandra for fun, while exploring your inner creativity and learning to paint during the journey.

From APPA: This is a hands-on class. You MUST bring your computer and a tablet (Wacom Intuos is recommended). If you don't have a tablet, beg, borrow, buy, or steal one, but you need one.
This is not and introduction to Photoshop. You will need to know a few basics, have used the brush tool, and be reasonably comfortable generally. It is recommended that you take an introductory Photoshop class, watch some YouTube videos or otherwise prepare yourself.
