Committed To Your Success

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.

Every class I have taken is so in depth and builds together in a cohesive whole. This class is so wonderful because of Karen sharing her processes on combining Corel Painter Software plus with her Art Degree and software knowledge I believe that not only is the Seascapes class a special class but all of Karen's other classes as well. I highly recommend it and all the classes offered.

Living in a landlocked area of the USA I have a love for the ocean and when this Master Class came available I was so excited. Having taken the class I wasn't disappointed, Karen in her usual style not only provided in detail needed information on painting seascapes, she also provided excellent brushes. Karen gives valuable feedback and is eager to answer questions to enable her students to complete a seascape painting.
