Christopher Gallego: Teapot, 2007, oil on board, 9 x 12 in.

Private Mentoring & Group Classes available
for up and coming painters
who are serious about their art.

Whether you're looking for some new tools or thinking about exhibiting but don't know where to start, these tutorials will energize your painting and your career.

Strengthening your powers of observation enables you to paint with greater elegance and ease. And these classes are all about observation.

Which is why I describe painting as an inside game. Technique is the fun part.

Classes may be purchased individually or in groups.

“I always look forward to talking with Christopher.

Not only has my painting improved, I’m learning so much about presenting myself more professionally - from refining my website and artist’s statement to approaching galleries and talking about my work to an audience.

Christopher is helping me move beyond the serious amateur stage to exhibiting and selling my work regularly.”

-Wendy Prather Burwell
