Default How to learn how to paint?

I have tried spray painting and own a couple of spray guns but I just suck at it. You guys that have learned di you just practice a lot, have someone that took the time to teach you, attended a class, etc?

I actually want to possibly paint my Yukon Denali. It doesn't have any rust but has a lot of places where the paint has come off. I know there is an art to masking and all kinds of little tips and short cuts to masking along with painting. It's black and I know black is hard to paint because it shows every flaw.

We have a local vocational school that has a body shop so I am going to check out what they may be able to offer as far as training. I'm thinking they probably want you to take a full blown semester or more but I won't know until I check it out.
