Classes With Bob Ostrom

I teach quite a few different classes in and around the Raleigh area. Many of my students have gone on to use their skills to improve their artwork,  increase their efficiency and even change careers.

Computer Classes

Bob teaches art imageMy teaching philosophy is simple, learning new skills should be fun it should never feel intimidating or overwhelming. My computer classes focus on three basic Adobe design and illustration programs, Adobe Photoshop Illustrator and InDesign. Each lesson is broken down into small easy to understand tasks that gradually build on one another. Although much of the subject matter we discuss tends to be on the technical side, it is always taught in a simple, practical manner. My goal is to make sure students gain a total understanding of how and why things work the way they do.

Tutoring Sessions

If you prefer a smaller class size or something a little more personalized no problem I’ve got you covered. I do tutoring sessions in and around the Raleigh NC area. If you’re not in Raleigh it’s OK I’m happy to meet you online. Sessions generally last about an hour or so and can be specifically targeted to what you’re working on or would like to learn.

Art Classes

If computers aren’t your thing, I also offer traditional art classes as well.  My philosophy is the same when teaching any class. Learning should always be fun and if you can’t have fun drawing cartoons or illustrating children’s books where can you? I’ve been illustrating children’s books for over twenty years. My work has been published in over 250 children’s books and publications. I’ve worked with companies like Disney, Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon and many more. What I teach is not just something out of a users manual or lessons collected from a text book, it’s what I do every single day as a professional artist.:

  • Cartooning for kids ages 5-8
  • Cartooning for older kids ages 8-12
  • Illustrating Children’s Books – Adult classes
