Jennifer Kapila / Winter 2017
I've never taken a CGMA course before but Rob has set the bar very high. I've taken other non-CGMA courses - online and live, visual art or writing-related - that I rated as quite good. They cost maybe half or a bit more than half this course but didn't offer even a fraction of the insight and dedication Rob provided.
Desiree Bencosme / Summer 2017
I asked Rob anything -- he responded well within 24 hours with helpful and encouraging answers.
Tim Murphy / Summer 2017
In all my schooling, I have only had a few teachers that have had Rob's clear care for his students and their growth. He re lit the fire in my to pursue art when I was moments away from quitting for good.
JP Burwell / Winter 2017
-- Rob always responded to students in a prompt manner. Rob is an excellent instructor and helped guide me with a much needed artistic push. I have already recommended this class to friends.
Yoon Lee / Spring 2017
The instructor is fantastic in his dedication and thoroughness. I only wish I'd convinced myself to take this course earlier.
