Alfredo, helped me prepare for our art class by texting me all the supplies I would need and gave me great advice to get the best results. His knowledge on color theory made me curious to learn more. His guidance encourages me to practice this new skill. I'm excited to continue oil painting with him!

TLDR-Hire him! Not only is Alfredo an outstanding painter (seriously-look up his work), he is an excellent teacher (and I am an experienced educator myself so I know what it takes!). He explains concepts thoroughly and recommends artists and books to study so you understand the science behind the beauty. But it's not all theory! We paint every single session. Once I started applying the fundamentals (drawing, perspective, color mixing) and Alfredo's teachings to my paintings, I noticed drastic improvements (see my before/after photo-after 6 weeks of classes). I still improve EVERY painting. Lastly, even though his work is bona-fide museum quality art, he makes producing high quality art feel accessible if you just learn how. Overall, I highly recommend him!

I had my first class today and I already feel like I've learned many new tools. Alfredo is a great teacher! I look forward to developing new skills and learning from his expertise. Highly recommend working with him.

I inadvertently sent this guy a message stating I was interested in art lessons for my grandson.... However, I did not realize that he lives in California and we would not be able to utilize his services, since we live in VA... When he called and realized that he could not be of assistance to me he became very anxious, and agitated, and demanded that I respond to his message that he sent to me on Thumbtack so that they would reimburse him a referral fee that they obviously charge people who advertise their businesses with them... I may not have received art lessons but there was a lesson learned!!! I will never use Thumbtack or other referral companies like it... Alfredo, as a professional, I would use my advertising dollars more wisely... please accept my apology for not understanding how Thumbtack operates... I hope that you get reimbursed your $38 for my inquiry!!!

I have been taking painting lessons with Alfredo for the last 3 months, and we have finished almost 10 paintings together. Every week, I look forward to Alfredo's teachings, and detailed approach to color and texture. I put my paintings up in my house, and no one can believe that I did these! I can't believe it myself. Alfredo was committed, persistent and very patient in working with me. He is super professional, punctual and just overall a positive person. My technique and skills have improved tremendously. Who knows maybe I will open up an exhibition soon... Thank you Alfredo! you are appreciated.
