Painting isn't just for artists anymore.
Whether you're a professional photographer or a hobbyist, you can learn to turn your photos into masterful works of art if you study art, learn to use Corel Painter and practice.
And you can take the art lessons and learn the software steps by attending an Artistry Retreat taught by original Painter expert and Corel Painter Master Karen Sperling, who wrote the original Painter manuals and whose preface and art are featured in Painter Showcase. She is the author of the bestselling Painting for Photographers book, which covers both Painter and Photoshop, and the highly acclaimed Painting for Photographers book Volume 2 and the producer of the popular Painting for Photographers video tutorials for portraits, landscapes and children's portraits.
Professional photographers learn to create artwork from your photos to sell to clients, through galleries and museums and in other, less conventional, ways.
Hobbyists learn to create nice paintings of your kids, grandkids and travels.
No prior art experience is necessary. You will learn the art concepts and software painting techniques from Karen Sperling, who has been writing about and teaching Painter longer than anyone and who has been using Photoshop since CS3.
The Artistry Retreats are semi-private and limited in size to provide individual attention and interest-specific information. They are held in Karen Sperling's studio in Sherman Oaks, CA, located close to LAX and Burbank airports in the San Fernando Valley near Los Angeles.
Students say that the biggest benefits of attending the semi-private Artistry Retreats live and in person are learning the art lessons, watching Karen Sperling's painting techniques, being able to ask questions real-time and receiving constructive feedback, guidance and techniques during the hands-on step-by-step painting lessons.
The Artistry Retreats cover Painter 12 (click the link at left for information about Painter 12!).
