Discover how fun and satifying art making can be on your digital device!
If you have never taken an online art workshop, this is the place to start!
These photo painting workshops are for anyone ready to find a therapeutic activity that can be done from the comfort of your favorite chair, or for me the couch.
Not to say that I am a couch potato, but in the evening when the work is done, I'm ready to unwind with a creative activity where I don't need to go into another room and pull out supplies to work on art.
I enjoy studio art, however sometimes I want to pick up my iPad and spend time making meaningful art from my own photographs.
When I'm finished, I simply put the digital art studio down. Digital painting eliminates the mess, but not the fun.
What's you will do in Workshop #1:
You will learn how to choose a great photograph for your painting by looking at your old photos as well as learn some photo composition techniques to capture new images.
Then you will discover my drawing and coloring process for using Paint Can.
This versatile little app is not only free, but also offers lots of ways to develop a painting.
Finally I will show you a great way to reproduce your masterpiece on canvas or paper , ready to hang on your wall!

Workshop #1 Photo Painting with your iPad
Develop meaningful art on your iPad. This class is for those of you with the desire to learn how to create meaningful art on your iPad. Use your own photos and turn them into great art!
I will discuss how to use the paint can app, effective photo composition, color and subject matter as well as ways to print your masterpiece on canvas or other fine art reproduction methods.
Workshop #2 Photo Painting with Photoshop
Learn my unique method of painting with the eraser tool in Adobe Photoshop using your own photos as the basis for your art. This method creates art that resembles Japanese prints or Art Nouveau style images. It's like paint by numbers only easier and without the mess. We will discuss artistic composition, technique and ways to share and print your masterpiece.
What people are saying...
Sarah does a great job planning and leading fun, creative lessons. Participants are actively engaged, and have a great time!
Fun and informative! What makes her an extraordinary teacher is her ability to relay the basics to her students. Sarah was able to breakdown the art basics to my 6 and 5-year-old while making the lessons fun. She inspired them to create art their own pace and to nurture their style. Her projects were fun and age appropriate. Her lessons have influenced my kids. As my son worked through a drawing the other day, he reminded me that he used one of the techniques Sarah taught him.
Sarah is warm and friendly, and knowledgeable about art processes. She was patient, especially with our younger students. I enjoyed working with her!
Sarah Butcher provided our branches with a very engaging program that brought timely digital information to our school age and teen audiences. The program could easily be adapted for adults to provide a wealth of information to those wanting to perfect their digital media artwork. Sarah was professional and creative in her presentation.
