VEAA Watercolor Workshop with Robyn Ryan
VEAA Watercolor Workshop with Robyn Ryan

I am here to inspire and encourage your creative journey!


I have benefited from the teaching, inspiration, and encouragement of so many wonderful fellow artists and mentors!  My desire is to “pay it forward” and help you achieve your creative and artistic aspirations.

I enjoy working with artists of all experience levels and seek to instill confidence and joy as you build your knowledge, skills, and abilities in pursuit of your creative vision and goals.

My role is to guide you and support you in…

  • Applying clear and simple methods to approach new mediums, techniques, and processes
  • Experiencing the joys of creating and the satisfaction of conquering fears and doubts
  • Building mastery to enable you to achieve your desired results
  • Dispelling the mysteries of “how do you do that?”
  • Freeing you to create, find your artistic voice, and express your intentions

My focus is establishing logical foundational “building blocks” (techniques, design principles, creative process skills & guides) upon which I then build practical application approaches and decision making skills.  My goal is to teach you to create based on what inspires and excites you from a solid foundation reflecting your unique personality and artistic hand!

I can’t wait to accompany you on this fantastic adventure!


“Excellent in every respect!”

“Great workshop!  Well organized, (I’ve been to many as a teacher – presented by educators and professional artists.)”

“Awesome!  I learned a great deal!  Better than my college course!”
