    Please join us for a night of Photoshop Painting with Sandra Pearce!  

    About this class: “Painting” is the practice of applying paint, pigment, color or other medium to a solid surface.  The medium is commonly applied to the base with a brush, but other implements, such as knives, sponges, and airbrushes (and computers) can be used.  The final work is also called a painting.  This sums up what I am going to teach you.

    I will be demonstrating Photoshop and its digital brushes that come in knives, sponges and of course, the wonderful airbrush.  I will give you an idea of the magical things the mixer brush can do (it can be used for glass glare, blemishes, stray hairs and a multitude of other things).  

    There will be time to ask questions too!  I have been teaching painting for the last 12 years and invite you to join me! 

    Note:  This class will be recorded via ZOOM and provided to all registrants for 30 days.
