Starting Monday March 29th, The Drawing and Sketching Forum
will be introducing a new series of classes called Basic 102: Advanced Elements
. These classes will be taught by permanent staff at WC AND by upcoming special guest artist that we have asked to come in and show us how they work. DO NOT miss this opportunity to participate in these free lessons. All levels are welcome including 101 students.
Our first instructor in this groundbreaking new series is Robin Neudorfer
who will demonstrate principles of perspective—a key ingredient for upcoming classes.
After graduating from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA, with a BS in Industrial Design, Robin Neudorfer went to work for Landor Associates in San Francisco, CA.
She designed commercial interiors for such companies as Banco Union, Panama, Air Cal, USA, Computerland, USA, BiLo, USA, DBS, Singapore, in addition to many architectural graphic programs throughout the world.
Spending five years working for a large corportate identity design office, it was time to her to explore her options. She started her own business in Sausalito, CA and continued to work on commercial interiors, graphic identity programs, and rendering in the architectural and advertising industry.
She was then faced with the conflict of raising a family and being a professional in her field. She made the difficult decision to spend more time with her family. During this time she remained creative by donating three years to a local school by teaching art to the students. She was then contracted by a neighboring school district to teach art to K-5, for an additional 3 years.
Robin has raised three children, the youngest being 14 yrs. old, and has also given a home to two foster boys.
Ready to take the leap into a career once again, the decision as to what field was a difficult one.
However, with much help from a mentor, she knows now that the right choice is to follow her dreams into discovering herself as a fine artist. She is currently enrolled at Art Center once again, taking classes such as color and abstract painting.
A year ago she was looking for a creative support group, and she has found it through WC. The support and encouragement is above none other. Finding the Wet Canvas community was a great gift in pursuing her dreams.
And now, Robin is willing to share her gift for teaching and her artistic talents with you. Please make sure that you take advantage of this unique and exciting opportunity.
