Holiday Party

Demonstrator:  Carol Liz Fynn
Wednesday, November 13, 2019

 A thirty-five-year veteran teacher of creative writing, AP English, and psychology, Carol Liz Fynn has a Bachelor’s Degree from Wittenberg University and a Master’s Degree from Kent State University. 

A painter for twenty-five years, she honed her art skills under instruction from Bill Whitset, founder of the Cleveland Art Institute.  She has been juried into numerous shows including the Ohio Watercolor Society and the Watercolor Society of North Carolina.

Above all else, Carol Liz is a master teacher who loves developing talent and skills in others.  She teaches at six venues in the North Carolina research triangle area as well as some national and European locations.  She is known for clarity of direct instruction, professional skills in the medium, explicit demonstration of techniques, and encouraging humor.   She is also a demonstrator/lecturer, who (according to her mother) should learn to contain her unladylike sense of humor. 

Apparently, that’s not going to happen.
