Art has been an integral part of Karen Johnson's life. She won her first honors in a coloring contest in 5th grade. Mixing the greens to color broccoli showed perceptionbeyond her years. Finishing all required courses, art was always chosen as an elective. Graduate school even allowed art history and oil painting.
She taught art to K-5th grade for 27 yrs. before retiring. Summers allowed plenty of time to teach Art Enrichment to children with a genuine interest in art, and still attend graduate school watercolor classes in Junction, TX. Texas Tech has a great program. Every summer featured new techniques and skills, ending with a show for an actual grade.
In-services and conventions allowed for furthering her skills and teaching other teachers the hands-on method.
Karen retired last year and eventually moved to her lake house. One month after moving from Houston, she enrolled in watercolor lessons at the gallery. She has filled her home with her work and now she shares it with you.
