Hi! I'm Karen Lynn Ingalls
I'm a professional artist and credentialed art teacher,
and I have:
My art and articles about it have appeared in local, regional, and national publications; I've been interviewed for radio and television; and I've even had one of my paintings appear on a billboard.
(Here are some examples below....)
I've learned more about how to make a real painting in three hours than I have in three years.
— Catherine Singels,
I've learned so much about composition, value, and color! She can teach you how to take a painting from the "green goo" stage to the beautiful butterfly you know is in there!
— Debbie Jorgensen, Kelseyville, CA
I've taken many arts & crafts classes, and KAREN is my favorite teacher! She is encouraging and supportive. You learn so much about color, composition, inspiration, etc., in easy to understand lessons! Try it!

What I found in Karen was a kind, enthusiastic, and patient teacher who is able to meet you at whatever level you're at, to give you instruction and positive feedback without negative criticism. I look forward to her class each week and recommend her to anyone, from a novice like me to someone with years of painting experience.
