Bring the Excitement of Drawing to Your School Today!
“Rob’s SketchTribe program is a perfect fit for our alternative education program. He is a gifted teacher and has the rare ability to connect with students and get them to explore their potential through drawing. The proof is in the amazing work that is produced.” –Sandy Mast, Director of Alternative Education, Santa Cruz County Office of Education
Our innovative, standards-based SketchTribe program is designed for alternative education sites, public and private schools, charter schools, and home schools. The lessons are fast-paced and fun. Students learn to draw from observation, imagination, and memory while they earn credit for visual art.
“Thanks so much for all you do with our students! You’re the best! I look forward to a long standing relationship together serving the students of Monterey County Alternative Programs.” –Gary Vincent, Director of Alternative Education, Monterey County Office of Education
Drawing coach, Rob Court, engages each student at their own ability level; then challenges them to take their skills to the next level. Rob shares his experiences as a professional graphic designer and illustrator and encourages students to explore drawing opportunities in art, science, design, technology, and entertainment.
