About Carol

Looking for an award winning artist and tutor to teach you the fundamentals of exceptional painting and drawing? Here is a rare opportunity to work with an award winning artist who specializes in teaching high quality drawing and painting to groups, adults, and children. I have been a professional artist painting still life and portraits for the last 19 years. I am honored to be a copyist at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, and a member of the Arts Club of Washington, DC. My training has been extensive, starting with a fine arts degree followed by specialized study of portrait painting, drawing, still life painting, figure drawing, and anatomy. I teach oil and/or pastel painting and pencil drawing. Since 1994 I have been hosting and teaching art painting workshops in the D.C. area as well as in Italy and Ireland.

My work hangs in homes throughout the northeast. I am a juried member of the Maryland Society of Portrait Painters, The Portrait Society of America, and the Rehoboth Art League. I am represented by Aerie Art Gallery of Rehoboth Beach, De. and The Arts Club of Washington, DC. I was thrilled to be a featured artist in Best of America Oil Artists and Best of America Pastel Artists 2009.

One and one half hour minimum lesson. If guest or convenient "free" parking is not available, client will have to pay for my parking expenses.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Drawing

I am an award winning artist who has been drawing professionally for the last 18 years. For 6 years I owned and operated a school focused on teaching drawing and painting. I held weekly classes and seasonal local and international workshops. Art classes for adults and children were offered on a regular basis. Currently I teach privately and conduct international art painting workshops

I am classically trained artist and believe in teaching the underlying fundamentals of drawing. You have to learn the rules before you can break the rules is my philosophy, so working with me you will be taught everything you need to know to master the skill of drawing. I specialize in portrait drawing and painting which I enjoy doing on a commission basis. Portraiture requires the most precise drawing skills of all.

Painting

I am an award winning artist and painter. I have been painting professionally for over 20 years. My training was very classical and the fundamentals of drawing and painting were stressed.

I now work from my home studio, but previously I owned and operated an art school with classes for both children and adults specializing in teaching the principles of drawing and painting. I work in pastel and oil mediums and am passionate about teaching others all I know. I believe in teaching the fundamentals of painting... you need to know the rules before you can break the rules... I now teach privately and conduct international art painting workshops.

I am a juried member of the Maryland Society of Portrait Painters, the Portrait Society of America, and the Arts Club of Washington.

Very knowledgable and encouraging — Carol is teaching me how to draw freehand. On our first lesson I left understanding some technical knowledge about measurements, lines and proportions. The lesson provided not only technical knowledge but also practical experience. I'm looking forward to our next lesson! ...
