It's amazing to see the results of of taking art classes with Chris diDomizio; I never would have thought I was capable of producing the quality work that he has trained me to do. Each step of Chris's program builds on the previous one and ultimately leads his students to create more than a realistic drawing or painting, they create art! HIGHLY recommend this studio!
Great class – I'll keep it short and sweet:
We love to talk about the "Old Masters." Today's masters are tomorrows "Old Masters." In about 100 years, Chris will be spoken of as an "Old Master."
Learn what the art schools don't teach! – I graduated from college with a minor in Art and a few commissioned portraits under my belt. I learned the basics of art in college, but Chris teaches it all on another level. The art schools tend to focus on painting what you FEEL...Chris teaches you the rules to great art and applying them to achieve the message or the mood. Once you complete the exercises, you've learned the rules...and when you can break them. After about a year and a half of classes with Chris, I quit my corporate job and now make a living as a commission-based painter! I completed all the exercises required for the program, but I will continue classes with Chris as long as I live here. I've now been in his classes for six years, and every week I feel like I'm learning something new. Learn about different color theories, creating an S-curve, figure-ground relationships, working on and off the form, achieving more contrast closer to you and less further away...the list goes on! Whether you "can't draw a stick-figure" or you have years of formal art training under your belt, I can't express enough how much you'll learn from Chris!
Drawing and Painting: The Masters' Way – Chris knows art. He is also a fine teacher who is determined to convey the principles of art through students' exercises, through demonstrations, and through illustrated lessons. He strives to bring out the best in his students, and when a work is completed, the student feels that he or she has produced something fine and feels a real sense of accomplisment. Both artists and would-be artists benefit from his program.
Eight years ago I walked into Chris' class of very advanced artists. I did not even know what cobalt blue was. Now I have a highly skilled technique and success in producing good art work. You are encouraged, not only by Chris' lectures and teaching, but also by all of the superb work and artist that surround you.
Italian Art from a master of art – I was given art classes by my sisters....after 50 years of not having any instruction at all, I was able to learn to draw in the manner in which I so desired....I have a drawing in my home now....and being a perfectionist....can say "it is beautiful." Thank you Chris
Best art teacher in Atlanta and the region – Chris DiDomizio is one of God's most gifted artists. You won't find anyone more knowledgeable or more skilled in this area. His techniques are unsurpassed. Be ready to work hard, but be ready for a most rewarding experience. Sign up! He's amazing -- and the community of students is wonderful.
The Best way to Learn how to Paint – Chris DiDomizio has changed the way I paint and think about my work. I have painted professionally for years and sold quite alot of work during that time. But I felt that my art was missing "something". I couldn't figure out what it was. I can capture realism with any subject or medium I used, but that wasn't enough. Then while I was at an artshow, I heard about a teacher in town that taught some great art classes. I thought I was past that , so did not follow up on it until much later. Now, I feel like I lost valuable time by not signing up sooner. Immediately, my work improved. Beginning with pencils and drawing techniques which I still put into place with my work, I learned about so many ways to THINK about what I was trying to say with that particular image. What was my message? Why did I choose that subject to paint? How can I accomplish that message?
I also learned about soft edges, contrast, moods in brush strokes, all things that I had learned in college but never really got it. Even if you have painted for years, you will learn alot with his class. I get great comments on my work now, especially since I have started using glazing techniques, so I recommend his class to anyone interested in learning about art and how to paint.
Learn how to create and to appreciate art – Take a class from Chris and you will not only learn how to draw and how to paint, you will never look at art the same way again. If you are willing to put in the time and to follow the program, you will learn how to create art. Chris' program takes you from the basics - how to hold the pencil- to the complex - how to create the effect you want through color theory and placement of dark and light. You will also learn how to interpret what other artists are trying to tell you. Chris teaches you how to really see art - to appreciate the message the artist is trying to communicate - to enjoy the old and new masters in a new and satisfying way. Drop by and see what is created in his classroom. You will be convinced.
He brings the undiscovered talent out of you! – Several years ago I bought a do-it-yourself watercolor painting kit and was astonished that my creation didn't look at all like the example! Well, I needed to learn to draw.
A friend referred me to Chris' classes. He called to interview me and wanted to know if I was teachable, dependable and not flakey. At first, I was a little indignant about being interviewed by someone I'd be paying for classes! I got over it quickly. With his instruction, I drew something that was recognizable in my first class. I was hooked!
I lived in Atlanta for 9 years. Unfortunately, I didn't find Chris until my last year there. I continue to use the techniques I learned from Chris. The training was like nothing I'd ever received.
If he has room for you in the studio, GO! The classes are VERY reasonably priced - in fact you might even think they're cheap; but the price of the classes is NOT a reflection of the quality of education you'll receive from Chris. Treat yourself. Listen to what he says and DO IT. You won't be disappointed.
