Corel has announced the launch of the Painter Essentials Café (www.essentialscafe.com), a new online community open to all Corel Painter Essentials users. This global community site is the newest in a series that Corel is launching to support its many user communities. Scrapbookers, parents, teachers, arts and crafts enthusiasts and aspiring photographers can gather together in the Painter Essentials Café to share ideas and inspiration, exchange helpful tips and benefit from the resources, tutorials and added content available on the site. The site also provides members with the opportunity to showcase their work in the “Show Your Creations” area where they can inspire fellow artists with their unique designs.
“After launching The Painter Factory for Painter artists earlier this month, we are excited to offer the same type of forum for our Painter Essentials customers, most of whom are just getting started with digital art,” said Rob MacDonald, Product Manager, Corel Painter Essentials. “Whether they are turning photos into paintings or starting to paint from scratch, these artists will benefit from the support of a strong, global community that is eager to share their ideas, interests and sources of inspiration.”
“The Painter Essentials team at Corel continues to demonstrate leadership in how it engages and responds to the needs of artists who are new to the world of digital art,” said Karen Bonaker, Corel Painter Instructor. “The Painter Essentials Café provides these artists with a welcoming environment to exchange ideas, experiment, and learn more about this exciting new medium.”
Based on Corel Painter, the world’s most powerful painting and illustration software, Corel Painter Essentials 4 includes everything new users need to set up their own home art studio. Featuring a wide selection of paint brushes, pencils, paper textures and built-in tutorials, Painter Essentials 4 is the perfect program to help users get started with digital art and create stunning paintings – either from existing photos or from scratch.
