About Carolyn:  

Carolyn Fee is an artist, educator, and art consultant.  She is the founder and teacher of "For the Love of Drawing", a course dedicated to deepening the drawing experience.  She has been teaching drawing for fifteen years. 

"Under Carolyn's tutelage we have all created drawings we never would have thought we could accomplish.  I think it is because Carolyn has an uncanny ability of seeing what you can do, even when you can't see it for yourself.  What I have found most remarkable is her ability to hone in on the uniqueness of each student's style without dismissing their work even when it may fail to meet the technical goals at the hand.  She pushes them to find their own hand print."
