What is a live online instructional course? It is exactly what it sounds like: a course that you take with Robert where he is instructing from his personal studio to you in your studio.
These instructional courses include drawing and painting fundamentals, sketching to train you to see like an artist, techniques, and material handling as well as artistic design (composition). Some courses will cover several weeks of instruction, some might be a simple three-hour course and some might be more like a workshop structure where we work on a topic over several days.
Course topics are offered on a monthly basis. Check back frequently or sign up for the monthly studio instruction email to receive updates about course offerings. Most courses are recorded and offered in the Recorded Instruction section of this website. Students who take the live course have free access to the recorded course.
All courses are held via Zoom. It is extremely easy to use and very interactive. It is also helpful to have your cellphone so you can take a picture of your work and email it to Robert during class. This allows Robert to share it on his screen and discuss the piece with the student-artist.
Your purchased course will be listed in your RL Caldwell Studio account under the My Online Courses section. To see the scheduled classes, click on your course, which will bring up the listing of classes under the Course Curriculum.
To prepare yourself for the class and to access the Zoom meeting, click on the appropriate class to read any instructions for that day’s class and then click on “Join Zoom Meeting” when you are ready to join us in the studio.
