" Carolyn’s drawing instruction has opened me to the subtleties of perception and a deeper sensitivity to the world around me. There is a zone, this right brained awareness, that harbors such depth and beauty. Carolyn understands how to help you access this part of yourself as a person and an artist. Learning to draw and to see with sensitivity has enhanced my work in other mediums as well."

" I am dedicated to drawing - it is what I do and what I love. It inspires, teaches, surprises and frustrates me at various times. The only constant is continuing." -- Diane Olivier

"It is only by drawing often, drawing everything, drawing incessantly, that one fine day you discover to your surprise that you have rendered something in its true character." -- Camille Pissarro
