with host artist Miriam Schulman
In this episode, I talk to Charlotte Troisgros who is Head of America for Carre d’Artistes. Charlotte selects artists for the gallery with the artistic team in France, hires and trains the gallery team and ensures the brand image is respected and customers have a great experience.
Carre d’Artistes wants to democratize contemporary art by making original and one of a kind paintings accessible to all and have an unusual pricing system that allows people to buy an original painting starting at $150.
In this podcast, you will discover…

- (06:05) How the art is displayed
- (07:01) What it means when they say they rotate the artists

- (09:04) Why the organisation was created and what makes it different
- (11:02) The most popular size they sell
- (11:51) How 4 times a year an artist will come to the gallery and paint live
- (13:36) How their artists are a mix of French, international and local artists
- (14:05) Why their prices are the way they are
- (15:27) How they market the galleries
- (16:33) Why they invest in location
Charlotte has been working as head of America for Carré d’artistes for three years. There are two galleries in NYC, one gallery in Philadelphia, one in Sedona and two in Mexico (Mexico City and San Miguel de Allende). I am also in charge of opening more galleries. The work consists of selecting the artists for the gallery (with the artistic team in France), hiring and training the teams, making sure that the brand image is respected and ensuring a great Customer experience in each gallery. The overall concept is to democratize contemporary art by making original and one-of-a-kind paintings accessible to everyone.

Every time you look at a portrait, do you think “I wish I could paint something like that"?
When I first started drawing portraits, I too struggled to use traditional academic drawing methods. But then I stumbled upon a simple “Taboo Technique” that easily captures people’s likeness and discovered it’s the dirty secret behind most professional portrait artists. They use this “forbidden” technique but don’t want you to know what it is.
After completing dozens of commissioned portraits that make my clients “ooh and ah” I’ve folded this technique and other short cuts into my “5 P” Portrait Painting Process and taught this process to hundreds of my students so that they could create portraits they could be proud of.
Want to learn what it is?
Tune in for the live masterclass ENCORE: "Discover the “5 P’s” of the Portrait Painting Process to Create Art of Your Loved Ones that You Can Be Proud of…" on Wednesday, September 18th at 3pm ET
In this masterclass you’ll..
☑️ Explore the 5 P's of the Schulman Portrait Painting Process (the third "P" is a total game changer)
☑️ Discover "the Watercolor Advantage" - this allows you to use the special “shortcut” that I teach that makes the whole process much easier
☑️ Uncover the "Taboo Technique" most portrait artists don't want you to know -(this one technique will allow you to get past your doubt)
