"I felt so privileged to have been able to take this course because Chris is not just an incredible artist he’s also an amazing teacher. He broke down such complicated and intimidating concepts in a way that I now feel confident about how to tackle still life paintings, landscapes and even portraits. I definitely have the right tools, a much better understanding of oil painting and can see a measurable improvement in my paintings now. If and when any additional classes are available I will be first in line!" - Kim

"I tried painting on my own for 3 years and didn’t get anywhere. The Chris Fornataro painting course had all of the information I have been looking for in one place. The videos are short and to the point so you don’t waste countless hours on Youtube trying to figure out how to start painting. This course was exactly what I needed and now I have several paintings that I can be proud of!" - Demaree
