While we have only received about half of the surveys, I wanted to share the student comments thus far.
– This workshop provided me with inspiration from a professional artist in the business who shares painting skills that no one else teaches.
– Tom was an exceptional instructor. The whole experience was way beyond my expectations!
– I learned a lot of art theory that applied to both oil and acrylic.
– Tom Nachreiner is a wonderful teacher – full of information, patient, funny. It was a real treat to work with him.
– I have had other workshops with this instructor and I have always come away with more knowledge and an increased inspiration in dealing with my media and different subject matter. He always encourages his students to try different things relating to their media and subjects. So it’s a very good experience for beginners as well as experienced artists.

All great comments Tom.

“My greatest appreciation of a Tom Nachreiner master class? Tom is able to stay focused on the work of his painting’s evolution and keep a verbal running commentary going seamlessly, so its as though you are inside his head as he makes decisions. He is able to articulate this choice of brush stroke
