I’m excited about the new classes at the Digital Art Academy (DAA). Check out these wonderful offerings.
Landscape Painting Fundamentals, Instructor Aaron Rutten, starts February 1, 2014. Aaron is new to DAA and has a very fresh approach to digital landscapes.

He makes you tube instructional videos daily and has a large following; do visit Aaron Rutten’s You Tube Channel. You can see more of Aaron’s work at his website. I laughed out loud when I saw this delightful image:

Here is an example of a landscape painting that Aaron will demonstrate in the class. Isn’t it exciting?

I know you will want to take Landscape Painting Fundamentals. I think this class will be a lot of fun.
I am very excited about Acrylic Painting on Digitally Printed Canvas with Painter Master Marilyn Sholin. Having Marilyn back at DAA brings so many fond memories. I took my first digital online class at DAA from Marilyn in September of 2008. I loved the class. Now she is back at DAA sharing how to enhance your digitally printed canvases.

Acrylic Painting on Digitally Printed Canvas starts February 17, 2014. This class will change the way we finish our paintings.
In addition to the two new classes at DAA, there are a number of Self-Paced Classes (Open Enrollment) available now and coming soon. Self-Paced class content is available to download immediately. Your instructor provides support for questions about class content. These classes do not include live sessions however some may include recorded live sessions. There are no deadlines and you can work at your own pace.
Master Painter Karen Bonaker’s popular class, Photo Painting 101 for the Beginner, is now a Self Paced class. Don’t let the “for the beginner” moniker fool you; this class is full of tips and tricks. I am always surprised at how much I pick up in every class I attend.

Elaina Moore-Kelly provides the best fundamental basic class for Painter X3 and Painter 12 found on the Web. Her classes are PDF based, very comprehensive, and easy to understand. For beginners and advanced users alike. If you are an advanced Painter user, treat yourself and be surprised at how much new stuff you will discover. These classes are win-win for anybody.

Returning in March are the very popular digital photography classes with Al Mierau, Digital Photography – The Basics, and Introduction to Black & White Photography.
Lots of wonderful education opportunities in 2014. If you are wondering why I’m not on the list, too bad…I ain’t telling. Just kidding. I have some minor medical issues that I need to take care of in February. After that, look for new classes from me.
