We absolutely loved Robbie, the art studio, the creative techniques used, and everything else we experienced here!! We can’t wait to come back with friends to take another class!! HIGHLY recommend!!
Oh, Kelsey! You are a Goddess! Thank you so much for this review! “Best Art Class EVER???” I’m blushing. I’m thrilled that you and Ross loved your time, and that you have been bitten by the Santa Fe Bug. So happy you come back 4-5 times a year… so I’m looking forward to having you at your family private painting class next time. More and more techniques to be learned. Of all the things to do in Santa Fe, I’m truly happy you found us at Santa Fe Art Classes. Be sure to remind me of our time when you call for your private instruction, so I can be sure to schedule myself. Blessings and safe journey home to Oklahoma! Best, Robbi
Paint like no one’s watching. It’s fun!
Santa Fe art classes helped me connect to my creative inner muse (in a city that is all about the muses), so on my next visit to this beautiful city, of course I had to paint again. And Robbi (my instructor) inspired me to dig deeper, play with more abandon and paint with more vulnerability! I am so happy that joy bubbles up in every color on my pallet. Thank you for reminding me what the journey of creativity is all about!
Dear Heather, I’m so happy you found me a Muse, and you KNOW I also feel that way about YOU! I LOVE the words in your review; dig deeper, PLAY, vulnerability, Joy… and that you felt inspired to paint with freedom! Yours may be one of my favorite reviews EVER! Please send photos of your creative journey; and join me for a painting class in Santa Fe again very soon. Of ALL the things to do in Santa Fe, I am grateful that you found me. And, keep an eye out for my Paint Your Soul Retreat…I’ll announce it soon! Blessings, Robbi
Fantastic! Again and again!
We LOVED our painting class with Santa Fe Art Classes . . . the four of us worked from the teacher’s guidance but all come up with unique creations that are now proudly displayed in our home. Santa Fe is such a creative, beautiful spot and the chance to make art there shouldn’t be passed up! All the instructions and teachers were so encouraging and kind that we all felt so supported.
Dear Emily, what a JOY it was to meet you and your family! And I’m ecstatic! that you have proudly displayed your paintings in your home! Can you post a photo of your artwork? I’d love to have that as an example to folks about creating your own artwork in Santa FE! YES! MAKE your art, you don’t need to buy it here…the perfect Santa Fe souvenir! And, I’ll be in touch later about my artwork, theemptywomb.com, as we discussed. Of all the things to do in Santa Fe, New Mexico, I’m thrilled you found us! I look forward to speaking again, soon. Blessings, Robbi
Family painting class in Santa Fe!
Wonderful teacher; explored new methods, great time! I love my painting and will continue painting using her techniques.

My daughter, daughter in law, and granddaughter joined me for a fun morning painting chili peppers. Who would have imagined how fun two hours with acrylics could be. Robbi was a fun teacher, encouraging each of us to bring out the artist hiding inside. Looking forward to doing this again! Btw our group was from age 10 to 68. Fun for all.Response from FireGirlArt, Owner at Santa Fe Art Classes
Dear Mary, Thank you SO much for bringing your lovely family to paint with us… You all were so much fun, and I”m grateful that of all the things to do in Santa Fe, you found us.

Hope to see you again soon!

Family friendly fun!
This was so enjoyable. I have no art experience, but the way that Jordan taught this class is impressive! I learned how to create the landscape outline, use simple brush techniques, choose colors to add dimension and effect and finish a 11×14 oil painting that I really like – all in two hours. I even brought my husband and brother to the class and they had a blast! Jordan and Robbie – I can’t express enough nice things. This was a unique experience that I will always remember. Thank you both so much and I will definitely recommend your wonderful art class to EVERYBODY.
Dear Robin, Thank you SO much for this wonderful review! You three were a GAS; LOVED having you in the studio,,, and I’m grateful for you sharing your MBA wisdom for me as well. I’m implementing your suggested change as we speak in my booking software.
I’m so happy you truly enjoyed your art class, and felt supported by Jordan. Do please send me a photo of your paintings if you hang them; they truly are lovely. And, come back again soon! Flights from California are so easy to here! Of all the things to do in Santa Fe, I’m happy you found Santa Fe Art Classes a wonderful family activity! Hope to see you again soon. Best, Robbi
Really fun! Even my husband and brother enjoyed this class!
Fun and inspiring class! The teacher knows how to teach in a supportive environment. I will do it again!
Thank you so much for your kind words! Yes, our teachers are amazing for (hopefully) the best painting class in Santa Fe New Mexico! We are so grateful you enjoyed, had fun and feel inspired! We’ll be creating and launching our online art classes very soon. Please keep in touch, and come back to painting class again soon. We’d love to have you! All the best, Robbi
Beginning painting class
Date of experience: October 2019
Lovely, creative and informative art class!Robbi was wonderful, giving me helpful instruction on creating my first acrylic painting.During the lesson, I was given so much information on where to go in Santa Fe, historical sites to visit. Robbi does Santa Fe proud. I will go again for a lesson, and highly recommend her to anyone who wants to create something beautiful, while learning all about Santa Fe.
Fantastic Mother-Daughter Painting ClassMy daughter (age 13) and I were looking for a mother-daughter painting experience. We were booking the week of our trip. Robbi was very responsive and accommodating.Robbi was fantastic at meeting us where we are at painting and pushing us both forward. Robbi gave lots of advice to my daughter – who loves to paint and is working to find her style. And we loved taking a break on the breezy front porch. Robbi also followed up and sent us pictures of the two of us painting. So fun!
An eye opening and amazing experience!I highly recommend this class! It isn’t your typical paint by numbers with no flexibility. It was incredible! This class was by far the best painting class I have ever been too. Robbi is amazing! She taught me how to bring out my artist and enjoy the art I create – even if I thought it was terrible! I truly haven’t enjoyed painting so much since I was maybe 8 years old. I hope to visit Santa Fe again so I can paint with her again. Thank you so much!
“My daughter treated me to a painting lesson while I visited from out of state. The instructor had everything ready and gently guided us through the process of painting our own masterpieces. I wish we could have stayed longer. It was very relaxing as well as informative.
”Date of experience: February 2020
“A very positive and relaxed space for beginners through practicing artists, to kick back and have a fun few hours or to get some real work done. Robbi loves teaching, and brings huge skills, a big range of materials, and great music to create a very comfortable environment. She’ll help you get started and then step back or stay involved, as you choose. But her advice is really good, and you will have learned something interesting by the time you leave. … Here for an extended period and looking for a great place to hang out? Ask about her Open Studio options, too. An experience that you’ll enjoy for a long time.
