This studio time is for students that have taken previous classes from Robert and have been approved/accepted into the mentorship program.
Thursdays, 9:30 am - 12:00 pm ET.
During this weekly studio time, students work on their individual drawings and paintings in a virtual in-person studio. The class is a dedicated time each week for students to work and ask technique and compositional questions and receive feedback through an open discussion. As a group, students learn more than just what their individual challenge is, because all discussions/critiques are done on screen; everyone learns from each other's challenges.
All classes 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 studio. This will allow Robert to share it on his screen and discuss the piece with the student-artist.
Studio times are scheduled on a monthly basis and will be listed in your RL Caldwell Studio account under the My Online Courses section. To see the scheduled classes, click on your Mentoring Studio, which will bring up the listing of classes under the Course Curriculum. There will be two sections in the Course Curriculum; the first is for the upcoming classes and the second is where past classes are archived. The past classes will be kept for six to eight months because there might be comments and images that students want to revisit.
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.
If you have any questions about the mentoring studios, please feel free to Robert at [email protected].
