    Loved this course! I needed the basics as a good foundation and this class gave it to me. It helps to use what is being taught as you go along. Khara is a great teacher because she builds your confidence as you work along with her.

    This was a great class! I watched all of the lessons in one evening, and played along in Photoshop with the instructor's demo files. I was looking to gain new skills in using brushes, and I definitely learned a lot of new techniques and tools! Great instructor, too. She concisely explained all her steps and pointed out shortcuts and other tricks for using Photoshop.
