Katie Roberts Art Classes are unique and friendly.

I believe everyone can learn to draw, and I can show you how. I teach in a way which is both deeply informative and fun. You will learn traditional techniques and have the freedom to explore, experiment and develop your inner artist!

About Katie Roberts, Artist and Teacher 

Welcome, so glad to see you here. 

I am a professional artist with a passion for sharing my knowledge in a fun and informative way. I believe everyone can learn to draw. I studied art for ten years, I have a Masters of Fine Art and have been supporting artists for nearly two decades.  I have been running my own classes since for nearly ten years and teach drawing at university in Melbourne as well.  


I am a Melbourne based artist who makes large-scale drawings, mixed media works, oil paintings and multi-sensory installations.I have been tutoring and mentoring artists for the last 15 years. I started running art classes at Span Community House in Thornbury in 2011.


I genuinely believe that anyone can learn to draw and that the basic techniques are a skill set like reading and writing.

I have an encouraging and friendly approach. I teach in a fun, challenging and experimental way, while imparting a strong knowledge of traditional techniques and skills as well.

I hold a Masters of Fine Art and a Honours Degree in Fine Art majoring in Drawing from RMIT where I studied under renowned drawing teacher Godwin Bradbeer. I have been life drawing for 25 years. I have held 15 solo exhibitions, and my artwork in held in many private collections.

I work from my studio at home in leafy Melbourne Australia.
