The difference 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 have a working knowledge of traditional and computer based art, she has experience teaching each form as well. She feels photographers already feel comfortable with the tools used in Photoshop. 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 business grow and prosper. Sandra is one of only a hand full of digital artist who are using only Photoshop to create masterpieces. She teaches how to use all the tools that Adobe gave you in Photoshop to be used for painting. She will teach you how the mixer brush works to create and blend backgrounds. Sandra teaches how to take your images to the next level.Tender Momen sample
