“We hired Cara for weekly tutoring sessions for the purpose of sharpening my 13-year-old daughter’s drawing skills for a portfolio and school audition. Cara was professional, encouraging, communicative, and knew how to bring out the best in our daughter. The skills she learned, especially the use of timed warm-up drills and bringing a drawing to the finish line, will last a lifetime. There’s no one I could recommend more for a drawing/illustration tutor!” ~ Satisfied Parent
