    October 4, 2017 - Oil Painting Classes

    Before I started working with Eric as my Teacher and Mentor I had become a bit lost in my Journey as a Portraiture Artist. Something was missing in my Artwork that I couldn't      grasp and I was becoming unhappy with my work. Eric immediately got me back on the right track. His methods of teaching are easy to grasp and understand.  His personality is always forthright and fun... Working with Eric is very rewarding and I highly recommend him for any Portraiture student from Beginner to Advanced.

    Eric Armusik is an outstanding classical oil painter as well as an experienced oil painting tutor and teacher. Years ago, my daughter, her boyfriend and I, fortunately, had a very good and very successful oil painting classes with him at his home. He did a very good job in his oil painting teaching program and we did benefit a lot from his patient demonstration with all the details. He is a fantastic oil painting artist and trustworthy skillful oil painting teacher so that it really worth for joining any of his programs. I highly recommend Eric Armusik to any of potential students for enriching their individual oil painting career.
