The Instructors

Robert & Susan Garden, co-founders of the Robert Garden School of Art in Irving, Texas in 1976 are award-winning master artists whose works range from private galleries to museum murals. The Garden’s, who both hold Master’s Degrees in Fine Art, has received “Teacher of the Year” awards from various school districts and a curriculum excellence award from the Texas Education Agency. Their revolutionary method of teaching beginners to advanced artist ages 5 to 105 is popularized through their books, television appearances, instructional videos, a unique line of art supplies and numerous classes, workshops, and camps for children and adults. Their busy schedule can be followed on their calendar page here.
