University of Texas, Austin
Hi! My name is Carly and I am a recent graduate from the University of Texas at Austin! After a brief stint majoring in Biology, I switched majors to Art History and never looked back. I LOVE art history and everything having to do with the visual arts scene in Austin. I have been working at the Blanton Museum of Art since March of 2010 as a gallery assistant and am so lucky to be paid to be surrounded by art! From August 2011 to August 2012, I was the curatorial intern at the recently merged AMOA-Arthouse, a contemporary art museum in the heart of downtown Austin. That was a wonderful experience that taught me firsthand some of the practical applications of my degree and allowed me to develop the skills necessary to explain, promote, and cultivate the love of art in a contemporary arts audience.
As much as I personally love art, I am not unaware that it is just not some people's idea of fun or excitement. I too look at some pieces of art and think, "Really?" However, throughout my years expanding my knowledge of the different movements and currents of art history, I have come to understand that the reasons some art survives the long years of history are multi-faceted and influenced by the different cultural practices, key figures, and individual accomplishments of a particular period. I am so excited to undertake the challenge of helping you understand and maybe even appreciate the different powerful connections inherent to art and its history.
Through UT I have taken a wide range of classes and as such have a broad basis of knowledge to pull from! I have taken:
-Survey of Ancient Art through Medieval Art
-Survey of Renaissance through Modern Art
-Art and Politics in Republican Rome
-American Art since 1960
-Africana Women's Art
-Art in the Age of Dante/Giotto
-20th Century European Art to 1940
-Goya and Napoleonic Violence
-Art in the Age of Rembrandt/Rubens: Northern Baroque Art
-Chinese Literati Art
... And I am absolutely willing to continue learning alongside of you if there is a particular subject I have not studied before that you are having issues with. Learning art history is a second nature to me now, and I would love to continue learning as long as possible!
I am a first-time tutor so I am figuring out the ropes of this, but if you have any questions or would like to receive a little more information about myself, please let me know! Hope to hear from you soon!

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.
I majored in Art History at the University of Texas in Austin, graduating in 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts. To complete this major I received a B+ or better on a significant number of courses that provided me with an expansive knowledge of a variety of periods in art history. Since 2010 I have worked at the Blanton Museum, and I am a current full-time status employee there. I am a security supervisor and responsible for my employee's education on the Blanton's collection. This entails providing them with an overview of the background, significance and context of our displayed artwork. I also interned during my university career at the Contemporary Austin, where I was a curatorial intern under Rachel A. from August 2011 to August 2012. In 2014 I was Assistant to the Executive Director/Curator at Co-Lab, as well as a Development Assistant and Education Coordinator.
