I am grateful to the talented artist, Carolyn Sharp, for her inspiring and well-organized two-day workshop on painting. Besides being a fun experience, I learned so much and was able to produce pieces of which I felt proud.  To work in her lovely studio, and learn from her, was a privilege!  Donna C.

Every now and then you need someone to refresh your creative juices, Carolyn was the perfect person to do that. I base the quality of a workshop on the number of times I think “That’s a good idea” and that happened many times over the 2 days. Thank you so much for openly sharing all of your artistic passion.   Arlene K.
