Robert Peters is a landscape and still-life painter with a career spanning over 40 years. He has exhibited his works in museum exhibitions such as the Prix de West, Quest for the West, Masters of the American West and The West Select. Robert’s paintings have earned serious recognition from collectors. He was awarded the Eiteljorg museum’s Victor Higgins Award, presented for the best body of work exhibited. His works are now included in numerous private, corporate, and museum collections.

At the start of his career, Robert worked for twelve years as an independent freelance illustrator represented in New York City. As a member of the Society of Illustrators, his award-winning paintings were featured on the covers of magazines such as US News and World Report. Robert created paintings for the national advertising campaigns of corporations such as 7UP, IBM, Audi, Intel, Motorola, Revlon, TV Guide, and others. Robert’s illustration experience gave him a solid foundation for his current work.

Born in upstate New York and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, Robert credits his early memories of the Sonoran desert with sparking a passion for the outdoors. His extensive travels throughout the American Southwest instilled a love for nature. Robert’s life in the west included some time in southwestern Colorado where he and his wife, Nanette, raised paint horses. And later, after spending a few years living on the central California coast, the couple and their two children settled back home to the Arizona high country near Prescott.

“The western landscape is an endless source of inspiration for me,” Robert says. “I draw from my own observations, which imparts an authentic and natural quality to my paintings.”

Publications that have featured Robert’s paintings are Art of the West, Cowboys and Indians, Equine Image, Fine Art Connoisseur, Persimmon Hill, Southwest Art, Western Art Collector, Western Horseman, and Wildlife Art.

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.
