About Roberta Marks:
Marks challenges her students to look inside themselves to define their own philosophy of art and to be as proficient in the written word as well as the painted word. In the end though she instills, it is not about platitudes and introspection, it is about producing artwork to enrich our world.
“I have a need to tell students my story,” Marks says. “I hope they can gain some insights themselves about the struggles of an artist; the needs of an artist. The courage it takes to stand before a blank canvas.”
Her very specific weekly assignments help students achieve this end. She is an intense and focused teacher and as a Buddhist, she encourages students to get rid of excess in their work and look for simplicity.
