An atelier is a historic word for a studio run by a master artist or teacher, where artists learn from each other. Robin studied in ateliers in Florence (Italy), London and Salisbury and over time developed his painting skills across Europe. Now back in Nottingham, he runs his own atelier sessions on portrait, still life and landscape painting.
Robin grew up in the UK and has lived and painted all over Europe. Painting in oils and from life, Robin has built up a large body of Realist work. He’s exhibited in the UK, France and Italy, carried out work for BBC’s Poldark, been short-listed for painting the Archbishop of Canterbury. His work has been exhibited in the Royal Society of Portrait Painters and the Royal Society of British Artists.
He gets a huge creative boost from teaching atelier-style sessions, with collective learning in the tradition of old European art schools and notably work with survivors of PTSD, where art is an effective therapy for debilitating symptoms.
Robin teaches regular portrait classes, weekend workshops, one to one tuition - or small groups. Through Wellbeing Anywhere, these sessions are now available to download as a tailored programme of workshops, with a discussion forum and individual feedback.
