I have been painting for over twenty years and have been studying with Carol for the last few.

Over those years, I have taken numerous workshops from very gifted painters and outstanding teachers. I have found that Carol Myer hits exactly the right note in a most sensitive and thoughtful manner. She conveys important information on technique and inspires her students by encouraging the freedom in the soul of the painter . To me, Carol is like a warm gentle waterfall of knowledge in what sometimes feels like a jungle of confusing art information. I have convinced myself that, if I had studied sooner with Carol, I would be quite famous by now. ( They say imagination is important for artists. – Dr. Joe Grenn, Tiburon, CA
