YOU WILL LEARN THE MEANING OF ART, 11/03/2012

This is a great class if you TRULY want to learn art. You will be amazed at the type of art you produce once you are completed with the program.


It's Never Too Late, 10/31/2012

If only I knew then what I know now! All art teachers are NOT created equal. I had always had an interest in art and whether by circumstance or fear of failure I waited until my children were... well established in school to finally give it a shot. Even though I received great words of encouragement, I put my pursuit of being an artist on hold for about 10 years. Now that the "nest" is empty I decided the time to return to that pursuit is now. THE TIMING COULDN'T HAVE BEEN BETTER! Had I kept up with it while living in another city I might not have seen the need to take classes now and therefore would be missing the best opportunity in the country to study drawing and painting! Driving an hour round trip is so worth it that I actually make the trip 4 times a week! diDomizio's Art Center is easy to get to from anywhere in the region and the class time options should make it possible to find a time that's right for anyone who wants to learn the basics and the intricacies of art. Whether you love contemporary or classical art; drawing, painting, photography or other mediums; whether you are wondering IF you could do this or have been an artist for years; the principles learned here will take your art to the next level.

Great Teacher

If you have a dream of becoming an artist but you don't know where to begin, this is the teacher for you. Chris will teach you from the very, very beginning and move you along through the principles and techniques of the Old Masters. You will be very proud of the progress you make! Chris knows how to convey the information in ways you can understand and apply.

An amazing teacher

When I came to Chris a few months ago, I thought I knew what I was doing. I can copy a photograph pretty well, but Chris takes it to another level. He teaches you about art and you learn in much the same ways the old masters learn. I feel so priveleged to be a part of his class. This class is my sanctuary from all the other cares of the world, where I can learn about art, hone my skills and be around other students who love learning from this inspiring teacher.

Reach a higher level

"The principles of art, like those of human character, do not change from one age to the next. The old masters are dead and gone long ago, but as teachers they are very much alive." This quote by Hereward Lester Cooke is what Chris DiDomizio is all about. His goal is to teach these universal principles which can be applied to any style of art. I am convinced that through his gift of teaching, he has the ability to raise any student to a higher level.

Learn what the art schools don't teach!

I graduated from college with a minor in Art and a few commissioned portraits under my belt. I learned the basics of art in college, but Chris teaches it all on another level. The art schools tend to focus on painting what you FEEL...Chris teaches you the rules to great art and applying them to achieve the message or the mood. Once you complete the exercises, you've learned the rules...and when you can break them. After about a year and a half of classes with Chris, I quit my corporate job and now make a living as a commission-based painter! I completed all the exercises required for the program, but I will continue classes with Chris as long as I live here. I've now been in his classes for six years, and every week I feel like I'm learning something new. Learn about different color theories, creating an S-curve, figure-ground relationships, working on and off the form, achieving more contrast closer to you and less further away...the list goes on! Whether you "can't draw a stick-figure" or you have years of formal art training under your belt, I can't express enough how much you'll learn from Chris!

Just What I Needed

I was looking for an art class with structure and that allowed me the time to work at my own pace. I found it at Old World Art. Chris DiDomizio is insightful and shares his great talent and love for art with everyone. TLee

Best Art Teacher In Atlanta

I have taken classes at some of the most "prestigious" artistic institutions in Atlanta and have found that Chris is by far the best teacher I have ever had. Chris not only teaches you to paint, he teaches you why. His understanding of how and why the great masters painted translates into a dynamic and meaningful studio experience.

You Can't find a better art teacher

I have wanted to draw and paint my entire life, but never once pursued that desire. I was too intimidated because I knew I didn't have any talent. A friend of mine encouraged me to take a class with her under the instruction of Chris DiDomizio. That was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Chris gives you the tools to be successful in his class. He not only guides you, he teaches you how to think. It is a wonderful program. Thank you Chris!!

A True Master

Chris is a master painter and a master teacher. His methods don't necessarily come from books, but from actually studying the old masters' works. He also teaches that there is more to painting than getting an accurate likeness on canvas or paper, and it is this insight that sets Chris' teaching -- and ultimately -- his students apart. His class is for anyone who has a desire to really learn art, or for the seasoned artist who just wants to continue their study.

He brings out the best in everyone

I have been taking from Chris for over 6 year now. I came in with no art experience and no drawing skills. He pushes you to do your personal best. Although there are students with termendous natural talent, some are in between, and others .... No one comes away from his class with something they wouldn't be proud to hang in their home or give to a friend. His passion for what he does is infectious.

Meaningful Instruction

Mr. Chris di Domizio has taken the mystery out of what makes a painting a masterpiece. All the technique you need is there, but he genuinely cares about your message that you convey in every single touch of ink, graphite, charcoal, and paint that you make. But there is a balance of perfection and excellence; Chris pushes you towards excellence and away from perfection. I feel liberated to be the artist that I am called to be in his class.

e.g. Amazing Results

The last 2 1/2 years at Chris diDomizio's Art School have taught me more about art than the 65 years of painting. To think before starting on any artwork; to see correctly, learning how to evoke a mood or an expression, applying contrast. I never learned about soft and hard edges before, or termonial points and checkerboarding!!! The application of using professional paints, instead of students paints, has produced the vibrant and wonderful colors that I so love and always wanted in my paintings. The advantage of learning to photograph in an excellent manner so we have something great to work with on our canvasses. My drawings, paintings, photos, have increased so much that my clients and the art galleries have all said there is such an increase in my work!! The more I learn, the more I need to learn.

Chris di Domizio is brilliant.

Anyone can learn to draw and paint. Chris diDomizio is a master artist and a great teacher. Before taking Chris' classes, I had already been trained as an architect. But after taking his classes, my artistic skills soared. I can't recommend his classes highly enough
