More Feedback 

"Robin is an amazing artist and instructor! She has the ability to translate her knowledge into very understandable information. She is able to identify students needs and provide them the tools to improve their skills. So happy to have found The DaVinci Studios!

"I wanted to learn from Robin because her portrait work is so incredible. She has taught me so much about mixing colors, painting from life, and the classical steps of creating a portrait from start to finish.  Her class has been such a blessing to me!"

"Painting a portrait is the ultimate painting skill. Robin teaches how to start a portrait and progress to the final stages where the painting comes alive. Her teaching uses both technical proportions and facial planes while you learn color mixing and how light and shadows play on the face. If you want to learn to paint, Robin is the best teacher I've ever had"
