"Over time I realized that all my passions" - says Caroline - "when not transmitted to others, are missing something. The only way to feed and enrich my creativity is to share it and the best way to do it is by teaching. I hold art classes in museums and schools, with adults and children and I have always learned something. It has been an impressive experience to draw together as a protest in L'Aquila last year in the middle of rubbles. I would be glad now to meet another group of urban sketchers and introduce them to a city that never ends to inspire me".
