Lessons and Classes With Bob Ostrom

My teaching philosophy is simple, learning new skills should never feel intimidating or overwhelming. My computer classes focus on basic principles you will use everyday. 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.

If you are more interested in learning about the business side of art I can help. Again, my philosophy is that 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 200 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.
