Karen has been teaching art for eight years and is experienced in teaching beginning students as well as those who have been painting for years.
Class participants will learn the elements of art and design, classic painting techniques, and color theory through the process of creating their own paintings. Each session is three hours long.

Since moving to the Pacific Northwest, she has created Pike Road Painters artist group in Yamhill, Oregon as an art teacher, joined Currents Gallery in McMinnville as an artist and art teacher, and founded Pease House Art in Oregon City. She now lives in Bay City with her husband, teaches art locally, paints, and is illustrating a children’s book.
