About Robert

I love art and the teaching of it. I've been a professional artist for more than thirty years and an educator for the past six.

I treat my students as contemporaries rather than students. I just know a little bit more than they do.

We reduce complexity to simple essential steps. That is the magic "how to think creatively and professionally".

It is my job to provide a safe space where they can be free to not only learn how to paint, use Photoshop or Illustrator but, how to express oneself as a creative person. To be the best you can can be and have fun at the same time.

If I can excite a mind and stir that person's abilities so they can progress...I'm doing great.

If I can stir their passion for art/design, their joy, well...than I have really done my job.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Adobe Photoshop

I've been professionally using Photoshop since 1990 for both image manipulation(Ads, brochures, signage, trade
shows, email blasts and for illustration.

I have taught Photoshop as an image retouching tool and as a creative design/illustration tool at the college level for the past four years. Photoshop can be broken down into very simple essential parts that allows the student to understand and rapidly grow in their knowledge and their creativity.

Drawing

Either digitally(computer) or with more traditional media(pencil, pen or charcoal)drawing is fun. We start with the basics and through ever more complex lessons the student will increase their ability to draw and express their own creative vision.

The ability to draw is linked to the ability to "see". Lessons are geared so the student learns to "see" and translates that into art.
Even if you are not an "artist" whatever you do for a living ...you can benefit from knowing how to draw.
