    A talented charcoal artist who teaches with ease and humor. Easy to follow, even for those of us with no drawing experience. Classes are fun.

    I can’t even draw stuck people
    BUT I DID a drawing & it turned out great
    My kids were very surprised
    Plan to do more

    Rob does an awesome job walking through the steps to draw a great master piece! It was a super fun experience and I can't wait to draw more with him!

    The box came complete with everything I needed to be successful at drawing a cow named Moo. The video was easy to follow. Thank you for making me feel like I can be an artist.

    Rob is the most patient teacher in the world! He always stops at each person to offer advice but is never pushy if you are in the zone! I have learned so much from him and always look forward to the next time I can visit with him!

    If you believe you don't have an artistic bone in your body, sign up for one of Robert Gorder 's Charcoal Expressions LLC classes. He will make you believe in your own ability and creativity! I promise!

  • Jodi
