Caryn Lynn  Duncan - Make Art, Choose to be creative!
Welcome    
Artist Caryn Lynn Duncan designs and facilitates art classes to develop student's unique creative style. 
 
I share my artistic process, looking to life for inspiration, creating with the hope to inspire others, promoting  the understanding that we are all in stages of growth, that with art it is not about being right but about trying to communicate personal expression visually, that through practice we can develop skills and continue to learn. engage, and produce work that is meaningful.
