· Oil Painting · In home C.J. Has so much to teach and knows how to step back and let someone learn and do. I perfectly enjoyed this lesson!

· Oil Painting · In home Carol has really helped me broaden my painting horizons, not just through learning new techniques, but also in just viewing art. I can now look at a painting in a gallery, know how it was created, and create something of my own based on what I see. She taught me so much in just a short time and has continued to be supportive of my work. Carol is truly a world-class instructor and artist.

· Painting · In studio I've been a hobby painter for years, not knowing what the actual methods were to paint. It was fun, but I wanted to learn some "real" techniques to take my painting to the next level. After viewing CJ's work, I was interested in what she could teach me. After the first lesson I was painting WAY BEYOND anything I had ever painted before. With some simple tools, tricks, and methods - I had a whole new set of skills to apply right away. Carol is extremely patient, and is always encouraging. Even with I thought what I wasn't doing, she pointed out moments and sections that I should repeat and do more of. In the end, my new creations were amazing, and I would recommend CJ to anybody wanting to take their painting to the next step on the masters path. She's the real deal. 7 out of 5 stars for this master instructor.
