Let Me Introduce Myself
I’m Robert Louis Caldwell, and I love to draw and paint. I have been painting since the late 1990s and have been drawing since I was two years old. I have the proof; my mom saved my first drawing of a Tractor Trailer.
My passion for creating art has evolved into sharing my knowledge with others through my weekly mentoring studios. Nothing brings me more joy than seeing that smile on a student’s face when they have created something new and spectacular.
I have been teaching since 2010, and now that I have this platform, I get the opportunity to teach from my studio into yours. During this weekly studio time, students work on their drawings and paintings in a virtual in-person studio. The class is a dedicated time each week for students to work, ask technique and compositional questions, and receive feedback through an open discussion. As a group, students learn more than just what their challenge is because all discussions/critiques are done on-screen; everyone learns from each other's challenges.
I am honored to be named an Associate Living Master with the Art Renewal Center, an organization promoting skills-based training, standards, and excellence in visual arts. All courses taught by me are ARC approved.
I love what I do, and I love sharing and helping students build their knowledge by working with color and brushwork!
