Cate Robbins

I teach in the classical academic style for ages 11 to adult. I consider myself an "art coach".

Have you ever wanted to try drawing and/or painting or do you have experience but would like to take your artwork to the next level? Meet with award-winning professional artist Cate Robbins for individualized art instruction in small group studio settings.
This is a general study in painting and drawing that includes composition and techniques in a variety of mediums. Instruction is based upon each student’s age, skill level, and goals.
Classes are designed to introduce new students to the skills required to accurately render what they see and for the more advanced artist to gain some visual and creative practice in drawing and painting that will enhance any artistic endeavors.
The class objective is to provide the "tools" necessary to draw and paint with confidence and to develop within the student the ability to see the world the way artists' see. From there, assignments lead the student to express their own individual creativity.
Supply needs for the class will vary according to the individual students’ curriculum needs. Adults and teens will provide their own supplies as needed for working in class and at home.

Cate holds a Masters Degree in painting from Texas Woman's University. She has been juried into local, regional, state and international art shows and has won numerous awards including a first place blue ribbon at the 2016 Texas State Fair. Collections in the US, Canada, Italy and Australia contain pieces created by Cate thanks to her shops on Etsy.

Cate paints in oil, acrylic, watercolor, colored pencil and will often combine one or more of these into a single work. Click on the Gallery tab to see a few examples of Cate's work and follow the links below to see even more.

When Michelangelo was 80 years old he said, "I am still learning." That is a philosophy that Cate embraces every day.

Tuition for the full month is due at the first class of each month. Arrangements for missed classes are easily made up but are the student’s responsibility to schedule.
Class size is limited so contact Cate today to secure your place.
