Larianne is a Great teacher and has a lot of patience.
I’ve been trying to learn how to crochet on my own and I wasn’t getting no where, so I got in contact with Larianne and she meet me at Barnes and Nobles for a crochet class. She showed me different crochet patterns and different crochet hooks. She showed me how to crochet. Thanks to her I can make different crochet items.
Larianne was very helpful and I can’t wait to see her again to see what else she can teach me.
Agnes
Larianne is a fantastic teacher. She started teaching me back in 2017, and because of her, I have my Etsy job. I make baby blankets, infinity scarfs and kids Hood Hats. My client loves the result. I had the chance to participate in many of her craft shows, and the experience was terrific. Her passion for crochet became an inspiration to me. Now I love to crochet and do many things for my daughter and me. Right now, I am working on a full-size blanket, and Larianne is helping me getting the pattern right. I wish I can show pictures. Thank you very much, Larianne.
Elise
I have purchased several crocheted items from Larianne for my family and fell in love with her vlog snippets on Instagram so when she mentioned that she’d be offering lessons, I didn’t hesitate to sign up! As a teacher, she has been incredibly patient and very supportive. In just a few lessons I was able to start a scarf for my sister’s baby girl. Thank you so much Larianne for sharing your gift with us. I’ve told all my friends that they need to sign up! :)

Whether you’re a local wedding photographer looking to enhance your final images, a graphic designer working for a major advertising firm, or just someone who’s interested in sharpening up some old family photos, Adobe Photoshop can get the job done.

But like any tool, Photoshop is only as effective as its user. If you understand the ins and outs of this powerful editing suite, you’ll be able to perform magic on photos and videos alike. Without this knowledge, however, even opening a file correctly may be a struggle.

That’s why my Photoshop class is essential for anyone who wants to know how to use Adobe’s premiere image editing software effectively.

Whether you’re a complete newcomer or someone who merely needs to brush up on some of its more powerful (and complicated) features, this class will offer everything you need to take your Photoshop game to the next level.

And since this class breaks everything down into simple, easy-to-find categories, you can even treat it ...

Stacy is a fantastic art teacher for my daughter (6 years old)!! She’s engaging, patient, and friendly, and has the right teaching skills to work with small kids. I was concerned that an online art lesson might not work too well for this young age, and that my daughter might not like it, but it worked perfectly, and my daughter absolutely loves it! Technically speaking it was super easy to download the app and log into the lesson. We are so glad we signed up and are taking lessons with Stacy. We highly recommend her as an art teacher!

Private Adobe Photoshop Lessons Near You

Even if you don't yet understand exactly what Adobe Photoshop is, you've likely heard about it. Photoshop has become a pervasive theme in popular culture. "Photoshopping" is now a verb, and "Photoshopped" is a regularly used adjective.

Anytime we see a model on the cover a magazine, we're compelled to wonder whether the image is authentic or if it was Photoshopped. That's just how amazing Adobe Photoshop software is — we often can't tell the difference between original and retouched images. With private Photoshop lessons, you, too, can learn how to manipulate photos, turning imagination into perceived reality. 

Why Learn How to Use Adobe Photoshop?

Many choose to learn Adobe Photoshop for career advancement, and taking classes is worth the expense. Whether you're just entering the workforce, going for a promotion, or want a more creative role, knowing how to use Adobe Photoshop can help. Photoshop skills are essential to any position in graphic design, web design, and user experience (UX) design. If you work in marketing, creating visual media, you'll find Photoshop useful, too. 

Others learn how to use Adobe Photoshop simply for the fun of being creative with highly powerful, seemingly limitless digital tools. In Photoshop, you can experiment with your own perception of reality by manipulating images. Whether you want to see what you or a friend looks like with different eyes or how yesterday's sunset appears through a photo filter, Photoshop can show you. With Photoshop, you can make the fictional fancies of your imagination appear real. 

The Best Way to Learn Adobe Photoshop and What You'll Study in Lessons

Yes, it's easy to find free Adobe Photoshop classes and tutorials online, but nothing beats learning with a private Adobe Photoshop tutor. Whether you want to learn to retouch your photos or transform them into completely different works of art, a private teacher can help you achieve your goals fast. You'll receive immediate answers to your questions and prompt feedback with your teacher's undivided attention.

Plus, no two private lessons are exactly alike. For example, Adobe Photoshop classes for kids differ in terms of teaching style and course content from Adobe Photoshop Lessons for adults. No matter your age or current skill level, your private Adobe Photoshop teacher will completely customize your lessons to meet your needs, keep you motivated, and hold your interest. 

Sample Curriculum for Beginner Adobe Photoshop

If you have little or no prior experience working with Adobe Photoshop, then you'll be most comfortable in beginner lessons. Your teacher will introduce you to the basics of Photoshop. You'll learn to navigate your way through the software and use some of its basic tools to improve and manipulate the appearance of images. Your teacher might choose to cover the following topics:

  • Understanding raster images
  • Navigating menus, tools, panels, and options
  • Harness the power of layers
  • Experimenting with filters
  • Using the type tool

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Adobe Photoshop

If you're already familiar with the basic tools and techniques used in Adobe Photoshop, but want to improve your skills, then intermediate lessons are for you. You'll learn to create increasingly complex images and handle more challenging retouches, as your instructor introduces you to more tips and tricks of editing in Photoshop. Your tutor might choose to cover the following topics:

  • RAW images
  • Master Photoshop selection tools
  • Introduction to a variety of photo effects
  • Multi-exposure images
  • Apply color and composition theory

Sample Curriculum for Advanced Adobe Photoshop

If you already know your way around Photoshop and are familiar with many tricks, but want to master the software, advanced lessons are for you. In these lessons, you'll have the opportunity to work with a professional to learn subtle techniques and complex tools to create masterful artwork. Subjects taught in advanced classes depend greatly on each student's individual interests and goals, but your teacher might choose to cover the following topics:

  • Digital painting
  • Simple video editing
  • Healing and retouching images
  • Create custom brushes
  • Integrating Photoshop with other Adobe CS software

How to Find an Adobe Photoshop Teacher Near You

If you're ready to learn to master the art of Photoshopping photos, a private teacher will help you along the way! Luckily, finding an Adobe Photoshop tutor on TakeLessons is easy! A quick search will direct you to pages of highly qualified and experienced teachers who offer lessons online and in-person. Be sure to browse through several teacher profiles and read reviews left by other students before choosing the teacher who's right for you. 

The price of Adobe Photoshop lessons varies, but most instructors base rates on the length and frequency of lessons. With so many teachers to choose from, you'll be able to find a professional whose pricing fits your budget and whose classes fit your schedule. You'll find that paying for private lessons is an investment that pays of fast. You'll learn new techniques and tools quickly and improve your editing skills after just the first lesson.
