What Our Students Are Saying!

Georg Ireland

I'm sure I would not paint digitally today if I had not attended Karen's and Skip's classes. They enabled me to get a feeling and understanding of the complex interaction of brush, pressure, and texture.  I have realized in their classes how important pressure and the various brush, texture, and other settings are for the result of a brushstroke and not the brush itself. The DAA classes have opened a new world for me as an artist.
