Caro Dranow has a passion for self portraiture—”To me, no other artistic discipline is as personal as portraiture. The human act of drawing oneself provides a point of reflection and catharsis invaluable to the emotional development of anyone.” Join Artist in Residence Dranow to learn the basics of this important foundational exercise.

All you need is pencils, paper, and imagination. No experience necessary to come- just come with an open mind!

Caro Dranow (b. 1998) is an emerging painter based in New England. A recent graduate of Bowdoin College, her work explores emotional impressions of Maine’s wilderness and coast. By abstractly painting Maine with color and line, she attempts to capture the larger whimsy and awe of the land. By challenging traditional conventions of landscape painting, Caro views her work as innovative and intimate interpretations of the space that inspires her. She loves to paint because of the spiritual and cathartic experience and enjoys connecting with other artists. Caro has shown at the Greenpoint Gallery in New York City and has upcoming shows this Spring in and around New England. In addition to her gallery representation, she has been an honored recipient of the Robert and Blythe Grant for the Arts in Maine as well as the Ginestrelle Art Residency in Assisi, Italy. In addition to her emerging professional practice as an artist, Caro is an ardent teacher who runs community workshops for children and adults in Brunswick, Maine. Caro aspires to attend grad school and obtain her MFA at Yale University in order to spread her passion for art and teaching.
