Classes

Single session

Classes are one to one or of a maximum of 2, this way you can be absolutely certain to receive Cristiano’s full attention for the entire lesson. You are welcome to attend even just one Class and you might be able to finish a painting in one sitting, or you can come back for 2 or several classes, the choice is yours!

Abstract Art is about exploring forms and colour and during your class with Cristiano you will learn how to:

  • Develop an Idea for your painting, researching images and how to bring inspiration to develop a new project
  • Select the colour to use for your painting and how to choose good combinations of them,
  • Mix different media without compromising the archival characteristic of your painting,
  • Create movement and force with colours
  • Create effects and texture
  • Create different textures with unconventional methods

At the same time you will learn all about Mediums, Solvent, Brushes, Pallet knifes and how to make your own painting tool

At your discretion Cristiano will give you an introduction about colour theory, and briefly explain what’s tempera, acrylics and oil colour, pigments, bindings, mediums, solvents, types of canvases, how to stretch it and ways of priming a canvas with gesso, as you would do for a wooden panel or paper; How to varnish your finished painting, the different tips of varnish and how to apply them

You will discover the freeing felling of painting in Abstract and see that there’s no limit to what technique or tools you can use to apply colour: fingers, pallet knifes, wooden sticks, rugs, spray-paint, paint rollers, stencils, and anything else your imagination brings you to!

The ones above are just some ideas of what you can decide to learn, but if you have something that you're already working on, or some images that you want to reproduce in painting, that’s totally up to you! If you have been painting or drawing before, whatever the level, it would be very useful for me to have a look at it, so that I can asses your level and understand where you need to work on.

The more I know about your previous works and what you want to learn, the better I can prepare to give you a great lesson tailored for you!

I would recommend Cristiano to anybody! He teaches with such clarity and ease in such a lovely realxed setting. He gives you complete flexibility with what you wish to work on. I organised this for my best friend and it was a lovely different thing to do as a birthday gift together. Neither of us had any painting experience and yet came away really proud and happy with the pieces we had painted. Cristiano's passion shines through throughout the session which makes the whole experience even more enjoyable. He is a wonderful teacher. Thank you so much Cristiano. Best, Christie (And Dino too!)

Cristiano perfectly tailored the class to exactly what I was hoping to learn. I appreciated the more experimental techniques he introduced since I was interested in them and they complemented the more practical tips he also provided. It was a very enjoyable session, highly recommended.

Abstract Painting in Artist Studio by Cristiano Di Martino - art in London

About your host, Cristiano Di Martino

Cristinao began his Art studies working under a local 'Maestro' in the Italian city of Arezzo at the age of 14. That's where he learnt to paint in a traditional manner, focusing particularly on portrait painting. He later continued his education at the Accademia Di Belli Arti in Florence. During this time he studied many established aspects of painting, including but not limited to; building and preparing a canvas from scratch, using mediums, pigments, mixing and applying paint, layers, brushstrokes, textures, light, realism, abstraction, movement, form and composition and the theory of painting. In his work today he uses an array of techniques and materials, from the most traditional to more contemporary and unconventional. He can tailor his teaching to the needs and challenges that are specific to you.
Above all, he would do his best to make the class both entertaining and informative to help you get the most the out of painting and enjoy it as much as he does.
