Corel Painter: Through the Minds Eye

Jim Cunningham
Course Number: 11
Level: Beginner to Intermediate

From painting classic portraits, to landscapes, to impressionistic and abstract paintings, Corel Painter gives the artist the tools to create whatever we can imagine.

As digital photography becomes easier with new cameras that that give the photographer amazing images with just the press of a button, and software and actions that can take an average image and add sizzle, it is becoming more apparent that professional photographers have a need to differentiate between themselves and everyone else.

Jim will take you step by step through the creative process, from getting familiar with the Painter interface to creating true works of art.  From Classic Portraits to Abstract Paintings, Jim will cover the tools used in Painter to create each type of painting.

Students should have a working knowledge of Photoshop, including layers and layer masks.  Each student is encouraged to bring at least 5 images of their own to work on in class.  Join Jim and unleash your inner artist.
