Artist Biography and Resume
Jillian Zausmer Goldberg
Born and raised in Cape Town South Africa, Jillian attended the Michaelis School of Art at the University of Cape Town. She studied art education under Stephen DeVilliers and taught private and public school art for children for over thirty years. Jillian founded the Gifted and Talented Development Center of Charlotte, North Carolina in 1984. Through innovative summer camps, art schools and outbound arts programming in the Charlotte and Triangle NC areas, the Center served thousands of children, many of whom returned to teach in the programs as adults in later years. Jillian brought the internationally renowned Monart Drawing method to North Carolina, operating seven licensed Monart schools in Charlotte and the Triangle. She is also a certified Monart Draw and Learn teacher trainer and has conducted professional development workshops for county school systems in five states.
In Cary, North Carolina, where she and her husband now live, she is active in several local arts organizations. Jillian has studied in Raleigh with Bob Burridge, Marty Baird, Leslie Pruneau and Ben Williams and at the Springmaid Watermedia Workshops with Dr. Harold Gregor, Mary Todd Beam and Carole Barnes and at Kanuga Watermedia with Maureen Brouillette. In 2011 Jillian was invited to create instructional DVDs on drawing skills, by Burning Oak Studios. These are distributed by Jerry's Artarama. She is an active member of Artspace in downtown Raleigh. In 2014, Jillian published the only book written about the life and career of the first curator of the North Carolina Museum of Art, Ben Williams. The book is available on Amazon under the title, "Benjamin Forrest Williams, a short biography".
