Rave Reviews

Your Art of Textures course has inspired me beyond words! I have to admit that I was intimidated / overwhelmed by Photoshop before taking your Skinny Mini and then Art of Textures classes. In just a few short weeks you have helped me blast past all my barriers, and opened up a whole new world of creativity. Your one-on-one help whenever I’ve needed it makes me feel like I’m in a classroom with you at my side, rather than in a different country, different time zone. I have learned so much already - not just about photo manipulation, but also in fine-tuning my photography and in creating fabulous textures with paint and paper. In fact, I have already had numerous requests for prints of even my initial pieces created under your gracious guidance! Thank you, thank you for an amazing class that has far exceeded my expectations!

...

I want to thank you so much for unleashing a whole new path of creativity! Ideas, colors and textures are whirling around in my mind as you gently guide me through the overwhelming world of Photoshop. I am no longer afraid of it, nor putting it off for a day when I have time...

...

Thank you for making it easy and fun with baby steps that are exactly my stride.

Just wanted to say thank you so much, Kim, for this course. I hesitated to sign up for it as I've been using Elements for quite a while and thought it wouldn't teach me anything new. How wrong could I be! Although I was familiar with quite a bit of it, I've learned lots of things I didn't know at all and I'm having such a lot of fun with using the textures. I'd tried textures before but I never had any sense of which texture would work with which picture, and it hadn't occurred to me that you could actually use more than one texture at a time. I feel much more confident with the whole thing now and I'll be signing up for your Test Kitchen very soon.

I have books on using Elements, but none can compare with your video lessons, clear, concise, informative. Love it!

Thank you so much Kim for your inspiring tuition. I have learned so much over these lessons so far and am no longer scared of using Photoshop 6. You have a very good voice to listen to and your instructions are clear. Can't wait to go through the last few lessons and I'm even keen to do the homework!

A Little More About the girl Behind the Lens

 

 

My name is Kim Klassen...  (obviously) 'smile'

Several years ago I started playing with photoshop...I did this so I could expand my licensed art line...  I had no clue how to use photoshop. In fact it sat on my computer for 2 years before I even tried to figure it out.

Then one day... my Nikon called to me!  And we became the best of friends...  My artwork took a new turn...and photoshop became a beautiful friend ...

I now do my best to rock my Nikon...  I've since upgraded a few times... but I will keep my first Nikon... forever...as a reminder of how it all began....

I never imagined I would be teaching classes to thousands of people all over the world?  I mean are you kidding me?  It's insanely awesome. Serious gratitude. And really no words....

My Life

I have been married for almost 23 years.  We have 2 beautiful boys. Brett is 21 and Bryce is 20.

We have the sweetest pup on earth. His name is Ben... He's a Golden Doodle (golden retriever and poodle mix). Before Ben was my sweet baby Andy... We lost him in July of 2010...  but He will live in my heart forever.

We live in the town i grew up in.  We have a beautiful antique 2 story brick house. A real gift from God.

My husband, John, has been incredibly supportive thru my creative journey. There have been ups & downs and in betweens. But we've made it thru.... together.

I am blessed.
