Robbi Firestone, Owner & Instructor
Inspiration, Spirit & Abundance
A fine artist and entrepreneur, my passion is inspiring and empowering people to live more creative, authentic, joy filled lives every day.
Think of me as your Daily Muse; inspirer of your innate, creative genius!
After 25 years of teaching and 35 of art making, I established Santa Fe Art Classes to serve.
We all have voices in our heads telling us, “You Can’t.” I’m the “You Can,” Voice. Secondly, I love learning from my students!
With that, Yes. I’ve got a learned background in the arts.
Yet, the most important lesson I learned attending prestigious art institutions was unexpected. (Parsons, Pasadena Center of Art & Design, & Fashion Institute of Technology.)
I learned that our Artist lives in our Naivety, NOT in techniques.
- How viscerally, do you mix paint?
- What colors will you prefer through discovery, not planning?
- Which shapes resonate?
- What are your innate design sensibilities?
- How can forms explain a space or moment?
- Can brushstrokes create ambiance?
- What interactions with other painters feed the process?You see, my students inform my art. Everyday. the expressions you evoke when painting from your soul enriches my own practice.Yes, I’ve got some skills and awards, am licensed, enjoy being featured in the Press a bunch. Blah Blah. I’d love to brag about some neat stuff. (If interested, you can see my Resume under About Us.)
I’m interested in asking deeper questions, helping students identify internal blocks to living a richer, more creative life.
I LOVE unlocking the questions holding us back, then sharing tools and techniques to mitigate the crushing, expectant, limiting voices in your head…
…and unleashing The Artist Within!
Hence, Online Santa Fe Art Classes was born!
By the way, we can go REALLY deep during my retreats, speaking engagements, and such.
