The oil painting class that my wife and I attended with Chris was highly educational. He was very patient throughout the process and provided in depth explanations about the techniques and demonstrated each step in the process in a very clear, concise manner. Chris guided us expertly throughout the entire experience and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Chris was very knowledgeable and provided so much advice (he was also super patient with beginners, myself included). He took the time to explain and demonstrate but cared more about our artwork than just showing what he could do, which was really nice.
Materials we used were great quality and he took the time to explain what materials we would/wouldn’t need to get started ourselves at home.

James Anvia Nov 2023

Very friendly helpful explains basics tips tricks and shows different techniques. Chris is supportive teacher shows good skills to me

Vince Farrugia Sep 2023

The venue is perfect , easy parking close to the hall.
Chris is a very good teacher, very knowledgeable and thorough. I am not a beginner but I need to upgrade my knowledge on how to paint light and make it shine out of the painting. Chris is good at demonstrating this technique.
Look forward to the next lesson.

I massively enjoyed the pairing class. I learnt some good and alternative methods of mixing colours and was able to make a work in this time that I was pleased with. Our teacher was encouraging and fellow classmates were collegial.

Amazing, I’ve always wanted to delve deeper into the world of oils….Chris was great! Will be booking with him again.

Angela Papadimitriou Jul 2023

The class was my first attempt at oil painting. Chris’ guidance through careful explanation, lots of information and demonstration made the whole experience enjoyable, worthwhile and a great learning experience.
Chris gave all students individual attention geared to their level in a very positive and patent manner.
He is very professional, knowledgeable and a great art instructor and indeed brought out the best result from everyone.
Looking forward to many more classes with Chris.
Thank you Chris.

We thoroughly enjoyed the class and will be recommending Chris to everyone! We walked out so surprised by what we accomplished thanks for Chris and his teaching methods. Thank you so much for everything!

Chris was an excellent pleasant,polite , patient, professional teacher who had a very nice personality . He actually taught all of his students as a whole class & also gave a one on one as well. He taught with passion & inspiration . He taught at their pace& their level of experience
His class was value for money 100%

The studio was a typical artists space studio , it was pretty cool
Everybody was smiling , learning & enjoying his well thought out class
I strongly recommend anyone who has any Interest, and anyone who has or has zero art experience in painting to try his classes out as they will certainly walk away very happy & they certainly who learn as Chris Vital loves to teach!

It was a fantastic class and I really enjoyed myself. Chris is a good and patient teacher and taught us a lot from tools to use, different paint brands and how to start and finish the painting. He used quality paints and in class he supplied the canvases, paint brushes and paints. The venue was well lit and a good area size for a painting work shop. Overall and enjoyable day.

Susan Kearns Apr 2022

Chris is very interactive with his students and is able to take into account the different levels of abilities. He puts a bit of effort into describing how to mix the colours and what the effects would be from light to dark.

Really good class one of the best I’ve been to.
Very good explanations and demonstration and very patient instructor :)

Patrizia Cocchis Oct 2019

The teacher was knowledgeable and very happy to help/give explanations to questions. Unlike other art courses the class was good value for money.

Christine Comito Sep 2019

Venue was perfect, and Chris was an excellent teacher. Gave us each personal attention and instructed us each step of the way. All materials provided which was so helpful too.

Deborah Shirtley Sep 2019

A thoroughly enjoyable class. Chris is a very informative and skilled teacher. For someone who has never even tried to paint, having the process explained and individual help all through the session, made this course totally worthwhile. A real bonus was having everything supplied. For novices like me, the explanation about the types of oil paints and canvasses to use was also beneficial. Chris paced the course appropriate to the group and we all left with our own artwork of the beautiful Blue Mountains.

Carene Piper May 2019

Teacher was brilliant and knew all aspects of oil painting and the venue is pretty cool mini art gallery. It's was value for my money.

Teresa Tidball Mar 2019

The teacher is excellent and works with you to make sure you understand and offer suggestions and tips if you make a mistake. I learned a lot about using oils and everyone took home a lovely painting. Excellent for complete beginners, novice, or intermediate painters. And, great value for money!
