b.1947

Robert Fletcher was born and raised in the Chicago area and received his education from Northern Illinois University, The American Academy of Art in Chicago and a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the University of Colorado. He also studied painting with Richard Schmid, Burt Silverman, Quang Ho, Mark Daily, Kim English and Tom Browning and in the field of sculpture, with Andi Mascareñas and Richard MacDonald.

Fletcher has spent almost forty years in the fields of graphic design and illustration. Clients have included: The Chicago Tribune, The Denver Post, The Rocky Mountain News, Colorado Magazine, The U.S. Park Service, The Bureau of Land Management, FEMA, Denver Water, The Anatomical Chart Company, and Wanamaker Press. He had been painting and sculpting during that time and now continues as a full time fine artist.

Fletcher’s love for golf and art has led him to successfully combine his passions through painting and sculpture. His work is featured at several of the nation’s top country clubs where Fletcher has been commissioned to sculpt and paint iconic scenes and pay tribute to the sport’s greatest players. Among those have been Arnold Palmer and his 1960 U.S. Open victory at Cherry Hills Country Club, the 1921 U.S. Open at Columbia Country Club and a tribute to the course architect team of Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw at the Colorado Golf Club. His sculpture and paintings are collected internationally by individuals and institutions.

Spanning over thirty years, Fletcher has received awards of recognition both regionally and nationally. “Awards are impressive on a resume and medals are significant but often get lost in some drawer. At this point in life, I strive the nod of appreciation from people who admire my work, respect my work and choose to bring it into their lives.”

Workshop Materials List

1. Clay – Chavant Le Beau Touche. Get the regular clay, not HM (high melt).
2. Clay warming devices, a metal bucket with a clamp on heat lamp or 100 W bulb works great.
3. Tie wire.
4. Aluminum foil.
5. Scissors.
6. Favorite sculpture tools.
7. Plank of wood (pine) approximately 8″ x 8″ x 2″.
Bring as many planks as you wish…the wood is used as the base for your sculpture.
8. Plumber’s pipe, 1/2″ threaded: Bring several different lengths…up to 10″…not PVC pipe.
Plumber’s pipe T joint.
Plumber’s pipe couplers.
Plumber’s pipe flange.
9. Screws and screwdriver to secure the flange to wood…this may be done before you arrive. (Place flange in the center of plank)
10. Wire cutters
11. Needle nose pliers
12. Rubber mallet.
13. Spatula
14. Measuring devices such as rulers, measuring tape, dividers, and calipers.
15. Because we concentrate on BIRDS IN FLIGHT, live models in the classroom are more distracting than useful. I will demonstrate the technique of constructing a cantilevered bird armature that can be used for many different bird species and will show you how to assemble shapes to capture the “gist” of the specific bird.
16. Bird field guides such as Peterson, Stokes, Golden, or Sibley. Sibley’s Guide to Birds (not Sibley’s Guide to Bird Life and Behavior) is best if bringing only one field guide. This popular book can usually be purchased at any bookstore.
17. Bring your laptop to the class if possible.
18. Bring your sketchbook.
