Carole Morisseau is a multidisciplinary artist, trained in the visual and performance

arts, as well as an educator and entrepreneur. As a visual artist, Morisseau is

accomplished in the genre of nouveau réalism (new realist) styles of art. Her

signature is comprised of strong images, bold colors, and thought-provoking

themes, which she often incorporates into series to help fully explore her newest

concepts. She has exhibited nationally at the New York and Atlanta Black Fine Art

Shows, Philadelphia International Art Exposition, and the Congressional Black

Caucus Session, in Washington, DC. A select roster of local exhibitions includes the

National Conference of Artists, Detroit Scarab Club, Grosse Pointe Art Center, Dell

Pryor and Arts Extended Galleries. Her work can be found in private and public

collections.

 

Morisseau believes that “art is the cornerstone that helps children learn.” To that

end she has taught art and dance at the Nataki Talibah Schoolhouse of Detroit and

the Detroit Public Schools. She served as a professor of dance at Marygrove College,

Wayne State University, and Wayne County Community College. She also founded

and directed the Detroit Dance Company for 36 years. Morisseau attained her

teacher certification in art education from Central State University, Wilberforce,

Ohio, and continued her studies at several institutions including the Charles McGee

School of Art, College for creative Studies, as well as the Columbia College of Art,

Chicago and School of the Art Institute in Chicago. She is currently enrolled at

Wayne State University in the Educational Leadership Masters Degree Program.

 

Her book, Paintings & Drawings can be found on amazon.com.
