    Hello, Virginia,

    I recently contacted Cheryl Keefer to see if she taught classes or workshops, and she referred me to you. I’m wondering if you could send me some general information on your classes, including your fees for individual and group instruction.

    I’ve been taking classes from Bob Travers at the Black Mountain Center for the Arts for a few years now and have learned a great deal from him; however, I’m feeling drawn to exploring a looser style of oil painting, and I suspect I could benefit from a different teacher in the not-too-distant future. I’ve registered for a three-day workshop in June with Jim Carson in Saluda and will see how I feel after that. In the meantime, I thought I’d check with you as I explore my options.

    I’ll appreciate any information you can send me. Thank you for your time.

    Warm regards,


    Carol Cole Czeczot

      Hi, Carol,

      Thanks for your note regarding classes. Currently, in oils, I am teaching individual tutorials only- $100 per four hour session tailored to the needs you identify at this time in your painting career. I have some worksheets which guide students in evaluating their own artwork, and provide direct instruction and demo to address needs the student identifies. My tutorials are scheduled to suit the individual.
      I do have one series of classes upcoming on July 9, 16 and 23. Classes are $45 each, and cover pencil scribbles for urban sketches, application of ink and watercolor, and a plein air experience in urban sketching, along with referrals to two urban sketching groups in Asheville. More information about this technique, which is wonderful for travel, is available on my website under the tabs Painting Stories (Poor Woman’s Paris series) and Workshops.

      Please let me know if you are interested in either oil painting tutorials or the urban sketching classes, or both, or if you need further information. Virginia
