Your Instructor Karen Bonaker

Karen is an Elite Painter Master and a long-standing member of the Painter Advisory Board. She discovered Corel Painter 20 years ago, and she has since enjoyed creating digital images and teaching thousands of students how to paint digitally. Karen believes traditional art principles can be applied digitally to produce artwork that defies distinction.

With her traditional art background and her state-of-the-art skills, Karen has been able to bridge two worlds and teach students how to apply traditional painting techniques to the digital canvas working with Painter. Karen believes everyone has the ability to draw and paint, but they need to learn how to progress. She saw a need for digital art education, so she founded the DAA in 2007 to help students achieve their artistic goals.

I have been taking classes with the Digital Art Academy since 2019 and started with Skip Allen first and then went on to take classes that Karen Bonaker provided and found with each class that there is such a valuable wealth of information on techniques that build upon each other. What Karen allows you to do is she gives you the path by sharing her processes and she is so patient and such a wonderful teacher. I highly recommend taking all of her classes because you will learn so much. It takes a lot of discipline but your potential is unlimited and up to you. I am loving the Renaissance of Photo painting because it is another technique to add to the list to get you to the level you want to be at and I love old style renaissance painting.
