Carol Stirton Broad
Carol Stirton-Broad has taught ceramic tile and mosaic workshops at Fleisher for several years. In addition to her classes at Fleisher, Carol also teaches at Main Line Art Center and Abington Art Center. Carol’s work has been exhibited in many locations, including: Abington Art Center, Ariana Gallery, Fleisher, Main Line Art Center, Philadelphia Art Alliance, and Tyler School of Art, among others.
Of her teaching philosophy, Carol says, “I believe that art is as important a form of communication as the spoken or written word. Sometimes the visual arts are the only way that the verbally inexpressible can be conveyed. All of us can be enriched both by a better understanding of — and a greater freedom to create — art. In my classes I try to offer new skills, the freedom both to succeed and to fail, and in an environment of trust and support. I am happy to say that I have never had to grade anyone, adult or child, and that I am delighted by artistic rule breakers of all ages.”
