“One way to really know someone’s true character is to visit a museum and look at art with them. With Carolyn Schlam’s The Joy of Art in hand, you will be led through a joyous discovery of art through the centuries as seen through the eyes and insights of an artist and educator who accumulatively reveals the literal and the mysterious building blocks that make art a viewing pleasure for the eyes and the soul.” —Jimmy Wright, artist, National Academician, and president of the Pastel Society of America

Carolyn Schlam is an award-winning American painter, glass artist, and author, born and raised in New York City. She studied painting with Norman Raeben, youngest son of the Yiddish writer Sholem Alecheim in Carnegie Hall Studios and glassmaking at Urban Glass in Brooklyn. She is the author of The Creative Path: A View from the Studio on the Making of Art and various illustrated books for children. Carolyn is a resident artist at Studio Channel Islands in Camarillo, California.
