An Afternoon of Fine Art


10AM-3PM, Lunch included!

Create a painted canvas fine art piece worthy of gallery showing in one short day.
We will start by photographing a beautiful model.  She is a ballerina, so we will capture her
long lines and graceful carriage under controlled studio lighting.  We will retouch her image in
photoshop or elements to give her flawless skin.  Then, using textures and painting techniques, we
will develop the image into black and white photographic art ready for printing.

All textures and digital paint brushes needed for the class will be provided.  Working knowledge of
photoshop or elements is needed to fully enjoy this class.  Bring laptop or desktop loaded with photoshop or elements.
Wacom tablet is helpful for retouching.                                 This is an intermediate class.

      Robin and Cindi - The advanced PS classes are the ones Cathy Nocera teaches. We found the formula of shooting and then editing so you come home with a finished piece to be the best way to learn the more advanced techniques. Her next class is on composites. It's a sports theme but the technique can be applied to anything.­

    Robin, Cathy is an excellent teacher. She plans every detail of the class and her written notes and textures she provides make the material easy to follow and have no problem to work on your own afterward.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
