A FEW WORDS FROM PREVIOUS STUDENTS...
"I love Thomas' enthusiasm and positive attitude, and am in awe of his expertise. I had dozens of 'aha!' moments during our time together and learned more about color from him than I have from any other source."
"Thomas was a very helpful teacher - he was able to zero in on the weaknesses in my paintings and guide me in how to improve and strengthen them. I would heartily recommend him to anyone looking to improve their painting skills."
Thomas Jefferson Kitts
Books and DVDs can help you grow as an artist but they lack a critical component: You can't ask ask questions or get immediate feedback. Nor do they substitute for the natural back and forth which develops between you and your teacher over time.
Workshops are great, but they often end before you've learned everything you want to know. Online mentoring allows you to receive instruction in your own studio over a longer period of time and to work at your own speed. Mentoring can help you expand your skills and find your voice – two things which are hard to achieve with workshops alone...

Study in the comfort of your own home or studio, from anywhere in the world. Travel can be expensive. Now you can meet with Thomas to discuss your work, learn a new technique, and get advice about paintings in progress. You can also discuss other concerns, such as how to sell your work, how to find representation, and how to submit to contests and competitions. As long as your concerns relate to art, the sky is the limit.
