Christopher Gallego, Teapot, 1997, Oil on board, 9 x 12 in., Private Collection

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

If you need some new tools or if you're ready to exhibit 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.

It's why I describe painting as an inside game. Technique is the fun part.
