Artist & Teacher
Watercolor Paintings by Carolyn Emerson and Her Students

An extraordinary watercolorist, Carolyn Emerson is also an inspiring teacher who has touched the lives of many. A Connecticut native, she moved to Virginia in the 1980s when Orange County schools had no elementary art program. Seeing the need, she volunteered to set up and teach art for grades 4-6 at Lightfoot Elementary, offered a weekly after school watercolor exploration for Lightfoot’s teachers, and taught lessons in her home. Carolyn has since returned to New England. This exhibit will be a reunion for Carolyn and her students, and an example to us all of what a difference one particular teacher can make.
