Paris Art Tour – March 7 & 8, 2024

I invite you for this exciting Two-Day Art Tour in the City of Lights. Join us for a small & meaningful private tour for two full days, where we have rich conversations amongst a magical group of people (6-12 people). Guided by two dynamic Artists.
The Mark Rothko Retrospective is a not-to-be missed experience! It is the most substantial exhibit of his work in a generation and will not be traveling elsewhere. The last big show of his was in 1999 and this opportunity is very special indeed – including the magnificent Seagram Murals from the Tate Modern (which rarely travels) and other paintings from private collections rarely seen.

Additionally – Visits to stellar institutions such as The Musee Picasso, The Musee Guimet (the largest Asian Art Collection), a day in the Marais neighborhood with visits to a Curated Selection of current Contemporary Art Galleries. Mid-day stops for lunch each day. A Kickoff Summit providing historical background and overview of what will be seen (pre-trip on Zoom). Evenings will remain open for your own adventures to meet friends or arrange other activities.

Client Reviews & Endorsements

I have had the privilege to work with Carole Silverstein for over a year in her “inner jewels” group workshops as well as private sessions. A gifted artist and teacher with years of experience, Carole knows how to open the “doors of perception” leading to new explorations and creative possibilities. Her positive stance and nurturing support are palpable and give rise to unmistakable empathy. I couldn’t recommend her more highly.

I’ve had the privilege to work with Carole as my art coach for over a decade. It’s rare to find someone who is not only artistically talented, but someone who, in a loving way holds the space so you can discover your own voice and expression as an artist—at the same time providing useful tools, encouragement and inspiration along the way.

Karen Dellosso

Carole Silverstein is the consummate artist-teacher. She dedicates energy to each of her students, offers superb examples from art history and contemporary art to support her talks, and makes razor-sharp observations about the works created in her classes. Her very relevant amalgam of cultural influences is personal and unique, and contributes to an unparalleled richness to her classes. As an artist, she is one part alchemist, diving headlong into a magical process of transformation, and one part philosopher, steadfast in her honest appraisal of life.
Yarrott Benz

Artist, Writer & Educator

Empowered is the first word that comes to mind when describing working with Carole Silverstein. I was initially drawn to her from one of her flyers about creativity, imagination and consciousness. At the time, I was struggling with my artistic direction and finding myself bored and boxed in by the paintings I was producing.
Reviewing my portfolio with her for the first time was emotionally profound. As she described the strength of my compositions and my striking use of color, tears welled up in my eyes. Listening to her words, filled with unique insight and an acute understanding of art history, inspired and renewed me. I was overcome by a tender appreciation for myself and the artistic efforts that I had put in over the years.
This artistic, self-appreciation continued to grow as we worked together over several months. My art was starting to jump! It was becoming more spontaneous, visionary and experimental. If you are ready to breathe new life into your portfolio and your life, please consider spending some quality time with Carole, your artistic imagination will thank you.

Carole Silverstein is a warm, engaging and enthusiastic woman with a passion for art, art history and art education. She’s not only a uniquely creative and gifted artist with a well-crafted and unparalleled aesthetic, but she is truly one of the finest art educators that I’ve ever worked with. She is knowledgeable and articulate, and equally important she is kind and quite sensitive to her students needs and differences. Carole has a natural ability to motivate and inspire, while teaching skill-building techniques, and well developed concepts. Carole Silverstein is a person of true substance that I’ve admired as a friend and colleague for many years.

Carole Silverstein is my treasured colleague of many years. I have invited her to teach in my classes and admire her ability to inspire students with her beautiful work as well as with her skillful teaching. In the past two years I had the privilege to participate in Carole’s Art & Consciousness Creativity Circles exploring archetypes. Her choice of themes as well as her related slideshows are superbly inspiring and insightful. As practicing artists, we get stuck in our own circles and Carole’s workshops are a cure for this. She helps you tap into other layers and step beyond your habitual anchors. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned artist I highly recommend Carole’s guidance.
