bobNot able to join me during the winter in Mexico at Studio South, please join me for one of these unique events in the United States.

Art Workshops and Demos conducted by Robert Masla at the Casa – Studios North, Ashfield, Massachusetts and various other locations in the U.S. will be listed below. Listings are added and updated throughout the year, please check back.

“My goal as an instructor/facilitator is not to teach you to paint or draw like me, but to paint and draw like you, to help you uncover your unique vision and signature. In this process I will help you expand the “colors on your palette”, assisting you in developing your repertoire and understanding of various techniques, knowledge and skills in the mastery of the craft of drawing and painting. Most importantly, my goal is to help you to learn how to see and think visually, with that comes an expanded awareness that art springs from creativity and connectedness to life” – Masla

Spend a relaxing weekend in the country while you learn at your own pace with lots of demos and helpful one on one instruction at Masla Studios North.

Due to a very busy schedule I will only be offering 1 weekend mentoring workshop this year at Masla Studios North

Classes at Studios North are always small, at this time I am limiting workshops to only 6 participants, so there is a lot of personal attention. People work in the medium of their choice - no problem as a beginner, you will take away a lot of useful techniques and information and experienced artist will broaden their vision and deepen their skills. Spend a relaxing weekend in the country while you learn at your own pace with lots of demos and one on one instruction. Improve your ease and comfort with drawing and painting as Masla reveals methods, techniques and materials that give the painter unparalleled access to freedom, speed and spontaneity to rapidly nail down a paintings composition and values, arguably two of the most important factors in the success of a painting. Learn to understand the difference between criticism and critique and how to move from a narrow vision to Seeing and Being in the Flow.
