A Skilled and Supportive Instructor

Caroline is both a skilled and supportive instructor...Audrey and I both credit Caroline's early support and guidance with Audrey's success in the art world ... When asked to write a freshman essay about an artist that inspired her, Audrey chose not Banksy or Picasso, but Caroline. She has helped my daughter accomplish her dreams, and I cannot recommend her highly enough."
