On May 11, 2011 the Corel Corporation released the newest version of Corel® Painter™ 12. There have been so many changes to this version, it’s almost like a brand new program, and as a result, new lessons are available here at LVS Online Classes.
Current Painter Users: For those of you who are upgrading from previous versions of Painter, there is a new course available which will familiarize you with the program changes, including, but not limited to:
- The new Panel system
- The new Document Window
- Mirror Painting
- Kaleidoscope Painting
- Workspace Customizing (It’s better than ever!)
The class is called “Corel® Painter™ 12: Getting Up To Speed“. If you have taken any of my previous classes, be assured that these new lessons will be written with the same level of clarity and clear explanations you have come to expect. As usual, I will do my best to address any questions or concerns you have with this new program version.
Not sure you want to upgrade? The class consists of 5 lessons; in week 1, you will be able to download the first lesson, and in the second week of class you will be able to download all the remaining lessons, 2 through 5. If you wait to download and install the Corel® Painter™ 12 trial until the first lesson is available, you will be able to use the trial for the full 30 days while you complete the lessons, and thereby get a really good idea if this upgrade is for you before you spend your hard-earned money.
New users of Painter: For those who are just starting out with Corel® Painter™ and have purchased Corel® Painter™ 12, I will be offering a brand new set of beginner’s classes. These classes will cover almost the same material as is covered in the other beginner’s classes, but these classes will be specifically written for Corel® Painter™ 12. This first level class which will cover the program basics is Corel® Painter™ 12: New Horizons Part 1
The second level class will continue where the first class ended and will be available for enrollment when registration opens for the late Fall semester. The name of the second level class is Corel® Painter™ 12: New Horizons Part 2.
If you use Corel® Painter™ IX.5, Corel® Painter™ X, or Corel® Painter™ 11, the other Painter class offerings will address your version.
If you have never taken my classes, you may be interested to read what some of my former students have to say about them.
Elaina Moore-Kelly has been teaching Corel® Painter™ classes here at LVS since August of 2008. In addition to using the program on a regular basis, she has also been a Beta tester for the past three versions of the program, Corel® Painter™ X, Corel® Painter™ 11, and Corel® Painter™ 12.
