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.

Bucky Jones – Illustrator

Wow, Bob Ostrom is an awesome teacher! Seriously, what he covered in 1/2 an hour, and how he was able to explain it in a way that even I could understand...just awesome! If you ever have the chance to take a class or have a lesson with him, I highly recommend it! Thanks, Bob!

Candice Davies, Author Illustrator

I'm writing to sing the praises of Bob Ostrom. It's clear from his artwork that he's mastered his media and is an accomplished artist. But being accomplished doesn't necessarily equate to being a quality teacher. How many of us have had that 'genius' professor that was just plain incomprehensible? I have. Paid big bucks for "industry standard" gurus before I met Bob, and each one left me feeling more inept and discouraged than before. Fortunately, Bob is one of the rare jewels in which craftsmanship and quality instructor coalesce. His delightful sense of humor makes learning fun and his sincere desire to help his students unlock their potential make learning relevant and exciting.

Tara Urbach – Artist

Thanks Bob! I'm so happy I took this 3 pack of classes for Illustrator. I was proficient coming in - but I knew I could benefit from Bob's years of professional experience and the fact that he stays so current with the upgrades. I picked up a lot of tips that will help me with my speed and efficiency - which was my goal. Mission accomplished! Thanks again!!!

An Artist’s Interview

Hey there readers!

Welcome to my second official post on BobTeachesArt. It’s been crazy busy here at the studio but I wanted to take a minute to share something special with you. Last week I did an artists interview with illustrator Wendy Martin. This time I was on the otherside of the mic and Wendy was interviewing me! We had a great time and covered a ton of ground. As a lot of you know one of my passions is teaching. We talk a lot about that and the world of children’s book illustration in this interview. I hope you’ll enjoy it! If you do please stop by Wendy’s site at: http://wendymartinillustration.com/wordpress/2013/10/16/illustrator-bob-ostrom-says-follow-dream/ and let her know!!!

Thanks and see you next week!

Online Tutoring Challenge!

Hey all, I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce you to one of my online tutoring students. His name is Kunal. He is from India and we’ve been working together now for a couple of months now. We are both in the process of building new websites. As you can see, when you look around, this site is far from complete. Because of all the crazy deadlines I’ve had recently this site hasn’t been progressing quite as quickly as I would like so in order to try and help motivate myself and Kunal I threw out a friendly challenge during last week’s session.

My challenge was by our next meeting (Thurday October 10th) we both would post a new entry to our brand new blog. So even though this site still needs quite a bit of work I feel that as a teacher it’s important I stand behind my challenges. So…. in honor of my challenge … and in honor of an excellent student I humbly submit my very first official blog entry post to BobTeachesArt.com.
