“Whether you are an experienced artist or a novice,” states award-winning artist Carol Ganick of West Hartford, “art needs to be an adventure in exploration and an expression of the self.”

She is on the faculty of the West Hartford Art League and has taught at the Farmington Valley Arts Center, served as an artist-in-residence at the Montessori School of West Hartford, and was a Greater Hartford Arts Council grant recipient.
