"So Engaging"

I always found Photoshop too complicated before taking this class. I like being able to go at my own pace and go back and review if I've forgotten something. The chapters are well described.

"Well Organized"

I really would recommend this class to anyone who wants to learn the basics of Photoshop. It provided a well organized, step-by-step approach to guide a beginner with little or no experience with the software. Most other classes have a disembodied speaker talking about images presented on the screen. I loved being able to see Kimberly on the screen as she explained different elements of the program. It made the class more interesting and it felt like she was actually there in person teaching me.

"I loved this class"

Kimberly's asides and anecdotes make it so much more fun and interesting to learn Photoshop than I had expected. I had tried in the past to learn it and got nowhere; now I'm progressing a ton with each practice session. Kimberly shows you the actions you'll use most often when creating PS documents. She knows which features are most important and she hones in on them right away.

I am a huge fan of Kimberly Brook’s workshops. She is one of the most dedicated, generous and brilliant teachers I have come across. I absolutely recommend this program because It offers such a unique take on oil painting techniques no matter what your skill level. This program features a platform where a community of artists can all nerd out on painting and all the tools we use to get there. This format offers great flexibility and I really appreciate being able to access the instruction as it suits my schedule. It’s like Netflix for artists. You can totally binge watch!

"Priceless Information"

As a professional artist, it is hard to find a seminar or class that is so informative and practical on the subject of Photoshop. The information, demonstrations, and hilarious side anecdotes are priceless.  I highly recommend the Photoshop for Artists for any artist who wants up there composition game.  Your artwork will be forever grateful.  

Dear Reader,

I sincerely believe everyone should know Photoshop. It is so essential for today when everything we do involves communicating via digital media. It's both a powerful and elegant tool. You don't need to know everything – you just certain aspects well. By narrowing down a distinct set of paths, anyone can learn it, build on that knowledge and become fluent.

I have always believed that everyone should know Photoshop; that they should teach it along with history and mathematics. Photoshop allows people to show others thoughts, no different than writing, except with images.

I created the course because I so commonly pull up the application to make a recommendation to show my students they begged me to teach them how to do the same. I made this course for them and you.
