Cristiano really brings out the confidence in you when faced with the intimidation of a blank canvas. I enjoy my classes with him and he has inspired me to paint every day. He encourages me to explore my own style. Aside from being a great teacher his professional work is remarkable and has great potential to go very far in the art world. Its an honour to be taught by him.
Cristiano is a thoughtful and inspiring teacher. It’s so great to have one-to-one classes and be able to discuss with him what I want to get better at and develop each time.
The studio is small but inviting and authentic. He has a great variety of materials to experiment with during the sessions.
I’d highly recommend Cristiano’s private classes to everyone I know!
Cristiano is a very generous teacher, with great knowledge of anatomy drawing and Oil painting. He showed me how to properly apply and mix paint, to create different flesh colours for the human form. His lessons are very insightful and inspiring. He makes you feel at ease and creates a great atmosphere for learning in his Studio. It was a wonderful experience being taught by Cristiano. He is very open and friendly. I learned a lot from him, in just a few classes. I would highly recommend his classes to any art student or art enthusiast!!
I thoroughly enjoyed my class from start to finish. Cristiano listened to my background and experience, shared and offered options on areas of development and we agreed the session objectives together. I learned core skills on brush strokes, materials, techniques, creating depth, working with oils (which i’d never used before). His teaching method was great, working alongside me so I felt comfortable. I felt a sense of achievement at the end of the session having produced something I was proud of and feel I could replicate in my own time. After the session we talked about options for a follow up session and Cristiano took the time to share a summary of the session via email for guidance, websites/shops for buying my own materials at good prices and quality. Cristiano is clearly an experienced, talented professional artist who I will be booking a follow up session with to continue my learning.
