Meet the Tutor: Robyn White

Tutor Robyn White smiling

Robyn White is a passionate visual artist and engaging arts tutor with over 25 years experience. Working across mediums in her own practice, Robyn loves to teach watercolour, drawing, mixed media and pastels.

As a tutor, Robyn is warm and empathetic, having experienced many of the challenges and frustrations that her students faced in the development of her own skills and knowledge. Robyn embraced art 30 years ago, after taking a break from her career in finance to raise her family. Having always had aptitude and appetite for art, Robyn built on her earlier talents for drawing and after 25 plus years, now has her own studio and fine art supplies business in Wodonga.

Robyn encourages students to build strong technical foundations upon which they can loosen control and let the materials work their magic on the page.
