exists to provides students with superior classical art training from the comfort of their own homes. Traditionally artists were forced to relocate for many years while they learned their craft. Technology has provided students with a more affordable and convenient
way to learn.

What you can expect from CAO. Personalized, one-on-one classical training from Jonathan. Access to a large number of video demos and lectures. Live “question and answer” video broadcasts of Jonathan painting. Collaborative forums to interact with Jonathan and other students. Verifiable results. The curriculum is a mixture of historically proven classical methods and more current alla prima techniques. (A student can typically finish one of the three major sections of the training in 6 months-1 year. However, since each student is treated individually, this can vary based on each student’s needs and the speed of their progression.)

Who is CAO for? is for new artists, artists who want to increase their skill level, and also those who wish to build a classical foundation. The methods taught on this site enable the student to paint and draw what they see accurately. CAO is not for those seeking modern art instruction.
