Well i dont know of anywhere where you can learn matte painting specificaly, but there a number of great painting teachers I had at sva (on 23rd street in NYC) that I could direct you to. I think that learning to paint well teaches all of the underlying principles of good image making. Then of course spend some time with some applications and creating your own mattes. If you can already paint well and use some paint and compositing programs than I would suggest to just continue creating personal mattes and get better along the way.

hope that is some help.
