bobBelow is a partial Schedule, (till Nov. 2016), of Art Workshops and Demos conducted by Robert Masla at the Casa – Studios North, Ashfield, Massachusetts and various other locations in the U.S. 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 see and think visually, with that comes an expanded awareness that art springs from creativity and connectedness to life” – Masla
