Holiday Open Studio at Digital Art Academy


The holidays are quickly approaching, and so is holiday fun. Registration is now open at the Digital Art Academy for the annual Holiday Open Studio event. Come join Karen Bonaker, Skip Allen, and me for four weeks of fun with Painter.

In Week one, Karen will be demonstrating how to paint a beautiful Holiday flower arrangement.

In Week two, Skip will demonstrate how to paint a snowy landscape using Watercolors, and he will include a lesson on using white space effectively.

In Week three, I will show you how to create a couple of holiday cards using Painter. You'll be using the shapes tool and the image portfolio, as well as some of Painter's basic tools. When you finish the lesson, you'll have the option of printing out your creations to send to family and friends.

In the final week of class, Karen will be back with a demonstration of how to paint a beautiful Holiday wreath using a set of custom brushes which will be available to all participants.

Holiday open studio classes begin on November 19, 2011 and end on December 16, 2011. Why not take a break from the hectic holiday planning, shopping and cooking, and join us for a fun-filled Painter adventure? You'll be glad you did.
