The studio is a comfortable environment – something about the atmosphere contributes to the whole process.

“After wishing for quite a while that I could develop my drawing skills, I was delighted to find the Scribbles Institute. The classes are focused and productive without being intimidating.  Rob, the instructor, is not only a skilled artist, but also an excellent teacher – very encouraging and supportive.  He covers the key topics necessary to improve one’s drawing, while adapting to individual student needs and goals. Great place to learn!” —Jon B., Watsonville

I really couldn’t have asked for a better instructor. If you want to learn to draw Rob is the teacher for you!

“Rob is the best drawing teacher I’ve ever had!  My husband and I have taken 4 classes with him, and would take more if we hadn’t just had a baby.  When she gets older we will be back for sure.  🙂 The classes are fun, you learn a lot.  And Rob is a super patient guy who is always encouraging. He pushes you to find your potential, but never too fast ,and always in a positive way.  If you want to learn to draw Rob is the teacher for you!” —Michele F., Boulder Creek, CA

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, former Director of Alternative Education, Monterey County Office of Education

I have never seen my students more engrossed in what they’re doing.

“Rob is an excellent, patient and innovative art teacher!  He has been a guest teacher in our school for the past two years.  He has the ability to take “non-drawers” and bring them through a series of exercises that allow them to find their artistic confidence in no time;  at the same time he has no trouble keeping very artistic students challenged.  His peaceful demeanor helps create a safe and quiet work space that is so much needed in today’s society. ” —Holly N., teacher, Santa Cruz, County Office of Education

Rob Court is a positive and upbeat mentor for inspiring artists.

“My daughter has always been interested in drawing.  However, she was limited to a few self-taught techniques and a #2 pencil.  After having taken several art workshops at the Scribbles Institute, her abilities now include using charcoal pencils, shading, and drawing proportionally from objects at different angles. In addition to learning new avenues to express creativity, the Scribbles Institute has an pleasant atmosphere where my teenage daughter can enjoy the company of other young artists who have similar interests. ” —Susan M., Watsonville, CA

A gifted teacher with an ability to connect with students.

“Rob’s Draw to Learn 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, former Director of Alternative Education, Santa Cruz County Office of Education
