In 65 years I've had good art teachers, but Chris is by far the best instuctor one could ask for. Chris explains how to mix your colors correctly and the results are vibrant and lively colors. You begin to see things in a way that helps you to produce works of art to be proud of. The use of color next to color that shows the contrast, the mood, the expression, helps make anyone a professional artist. The increase of knowing how to show the values correctly on one's work is worth it all!! Using professinal paints, instead of students, has helped me to achieve the brillant and true colors I've always wanted to paint with. The application of glazing brings such an excellence to anyone's work that you will wonder what you did without it. The terms of checkerboarding [light and dark next to one another] begin to make sense; learning about terminal points that give your work the dimensions you need; the wonders of putting soft and hard edges where they need to be will make a Master artist out of you. I was showing my art work at an art show in Carrollton, 3 years ago, where I met Sonia Reid, a Wildlife Artist, and she recommended Chris' art school to me and it has changed my art work that I had only dreamt about. I look forward to many more classes with Chris and the other art students.
Pros: Knowledgeable, Thorough, Proficient, Patient, Available to Help
