Hi! My name is Robin, and I'm a professional working artist showing in Chelsea and a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design. I also teach painting at the undergraduate and graduate level at School of Visual Arts and New York Academy of Art.
I'm offering lessons to children, teenagers or adults interested in developing their creative abilities. These private or group lessons can be tailored to meet each student's individual needs. I teach painting, drawing and college portfolio preparation. Whether you are a student, an amateur artist, designer, or illustrator, I can help you master the tools you will need to take your craft to the next level. I can teach you fundamental observational drawing and painting skills while also honing your strengths and developing your unique point of view. I can also help you explore new mediums or approaches to art making. If your teen is applying to art school, I'll review their work, assess where improvement is needed, and help to build a strong portfolio and application. Previous students have been accepted to top level art colleges and even received full ride scholarships. I will design lessons specifically for your child's interests and abilities, including trips to artist's studios, museums, or galleries. I am able to host lessons in my studio in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, or I'm happy to come to you!
Private art lessons were an invaluable part of my early art training, and were well worth the investment. They can also be an excellent way to keep your mind and spirit active and engaged with the world around you. Let's get started!
