Don't be dissuaded by another reviewer's mention of religion or politics. These are rare instances, and they tie into Chris's art lectures. Remember, a large percentage of the works of the "Old Masters" depicted religious figures and themes. It is fascinating to learn the Biblical basis for some of these works, in order to more fully understand how and why the artist conveyed his message (and yes, Chris even explains why there were, unjustly, so few female OMs). If you have talent, go to Chris's class. If you think you do NOT have talent, GO! You will not be disappointed. I have been there religiously (oh dear, no pun intended) since January 2012. One of the best decisions of my life!

The class was great and he teaches well. However, i did not appreciate him using the class platform to advocate his religion and politics views.. I could truly enjoy his class if he could make the class environment a peaceful one to let students enjoy the time being there not a place to talk about things that are in contradiction with what the art message is.

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!

Pros: Best value in town, best art teacher...period :)

Cons: none

.

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.

Cons: none

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.

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

Pros: Honest approach to the old world masters......

Cons: None

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.

Pros: the best art teaching studio in atlanta

Cons: none

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.

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.

I thought I was going to have to move out of state in order to find the type of classical training I have been searching for in developing painting/drawing skills like that of the old masters. I lucked into finding Old World Art classes about 6 months ago and I can't believe how fortunate I am that something like this is available in the Atlanta market!!! I am happy with my progress and love that Chris moves everyone at their own pace. I have minimal art education and that seems to have worked to my benefit. There are many students in the class who have advanced degrees in art and yet have never learned many of the techniques that Chris teaches. Actually, before I committed to signing up with Chris-I visited his facility. I was blown away by the student's paintings-I've never seen so much talent under one roof ...and all because of their training with Chris. Many of his long time students earn a living at their art and several have gone off to exhibit in musuems around the world. It's also not uncommon for students to travel out of state in order to study with Chris...I'm so fortunate to have his facility in my own backyard!

Pros: Classical Training...Nothing else like it in the Atlanta market

I have wanted to draw and paint my entire life, but never once pursued that desire. I was too intimidated because I knew I didn't have any talent. A friend of mine encouraged me to take a class with her under the instruction of Chris DiDomizio. That was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Chris gives you the tools to be successful in his class. He not only guides you, he teaches you how to think. It is a wonderful program. Thank you Chris!!

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

DiDomizio is not only an inspirational artist but also a refined instructor who is always looking for ways to better his teaching method. It's great for beginners or skilled artists. No matter what your skill level is, his teaching method will build your technique and understanding of how you can bring everything you've learned together to create art. It is also a very pleasant, relaxing atmosphere with some fun conversation to listen to!

I find the Art Class of Chris DiDomizio to be instructional, stimulating, and growth-oriented. He is a master of drawing, painting, and photography. Recently, he organized a fantastic trip to Bellagio and Venice, Italy. It was an artist's dream to experience this trip, as well as enjoy the group that Chris had assembled from our classes. Chris has added a new dimension to my life and works, as an aspiring artist.

I've taken several other art classes in Atlanta, and have found that Chris DiDomizio teaches everything I want to learn about drawing, composition, color, and the expressive qualities of art. I've been pleased and surprised at how much I've improved. For an expert, comprehensive art class, this is the place to go.

I chose not to go the traditional route of a college degree and have studied art under Chris now for 3 years. His instruction and technique are excellent, and challenging to both the beginner, and advanced artist. His methods and principles can be applied to any type of art. Highly recommended for the casual artist who simply wants to enjoy learning to paint or for anyone looking to make a career out of art as I am, and am now selling my own work.

This teacher can teach anyone (even beginners) to draw and paint if they are willing to learn. This is not a "pay your fee then do your own thing" class. I have been to several colleges and universities, and I was a certified art teacher, but I learned so much at this calss!

After studying under Chris for over three years, I learned more from him than I did as a studio art major in college. He offers practical, understandable principles founded in the tradition of old master artists that help students find success in his studio. I am indebted to Chris for giving me the tools I needed to become a professional portrait painter.
