Robbi has an amazing depth of experience to bring to her classes. You will marvel at her work having in the very comfortable studio. And yet she brings an unusual level of empathy for your stage of the process, encouraging you to experiment and discovering the strengths in your work. I was there for a month. I’ve worked with other teachers, and Robbi is the best.

Was looking for a fun and out-of-the-ordinary option for a rare date night, and so glad we selected the Wine & Paint Monday event at Herve! Art is out of our general comfort level, which is why we took a chance on booking an activity like this, and Wow, Robbi Firestone is a a gifted guide in demonstrating some techniques and mentoring our inner (unaccomplished) artists. We had a great time playing with paint and self-expression and Robbi was kind and insightful in talking about the work we produced. Would highly recommend the experience for locals or visitors since Santa Fe is, after all, all about the art, and having paintings as a memento is a wonderful extra!

The minute you walk in the door, Robbi is so warm and welcoming. She is not only an incredible artists herself, but a gifted teacher who makes the act of creating accessible to all levels of experience and skill. She helps you overcome the fear of the big blank canvas and walk away with something that reflects your own unique viewpoint. All while having so much FUN! Highly recommend!

Actually bumped into this place by accident, and decided to hop in (they are open to spontaneous visitors, booking isn't absolutely necessary).
So glad I did, what an inspiring experience, both on an artistic as social level!
Robbi is such a wonderful and warm soul, I will definitely return when I get the chance.
I'm an artist myself so meeting and sharing an artistic experience with a likeminded individual is incredibly harmonious and refreshing (even though, or possibly because, our styles are very different)! Thanks again Robbi!

Robbi is wonderful to work with, she is helpful and very talented at both art and instructing and helping others to find their inner artist! Her class was fun and she makes it a completely uplifting and unique experience. I would recommend highly to anyone!
