I am Robert Louis Caldwell, a professional artist and educator who has been instructing students in drawing and painting classes since 2010. I love what I do and love sharing that with my students. Over the years, I have gone from teaching a few students in a small classroom to a large two-room teaching studio with multiple instructors. In 2016, I opened the doors to my own art studio, which grew into Midlothian Art Academy. Unfortunately, the academy fell victim to the COVID-19 pandemic and closed in July.
Not one to stand around and wait, I pushed forward and found a way to instruct online from my own studio to my students in theirs. As I built this new online platform, I thought it would be nice to have a place to share the stories of my art, classroom instruction, techniques notes and funny anecdotes from some of my wonderful students.
I hope you follow along as this new journey unveils itself.
