Rob strikes a good balance between discliplined learning and an openness to individual learning objectives. If you have any inclination to draw, I highly recommend him.

“Rob is a patient and fun drawing teacher. He’s put together a creative but peaceful studio environment and has developed an excellent curriculum. I wanted to draw better for a long time. When it became necessary to sell visual ideas at work, I decided to do something about it.  After taking Rob’s classes, I had both regained my appreciation for the art and got a design proposal approved at work.” Adam S., Santa Cruz 

Rob is excellent at reading what each student needs and he helps guide them.

“My daughter and I have been going to the Scribbles Institute since the winter of 2016. At the time, my 10 year old daughter had been doing lots of art, but I could not find a class that would enroll a child her age and still challenge her at the level she was at. He does not teach us “how” to draw, instead he teaches us how to see the world around us and then he gives us the tools to interpret these things.”  —Zak B., Santa Cruz

Quite simply the best place to learn how to draw in Santa Cruz or South Bay.

“Rob is an excellent, knowledgeable teacher who knows how to connect with his students to nudge them in exactly the right direction at the right time. He creates an inspiring, supportive, artful environment that encourages the advancement of every participant’s creative goals, and also a camaraderie among the students that even further heightens everyone’s positive experience.” —Tina R., Santa Cruz
