Teen Classes: First-Year Painting, Developing Visual Language, Next Steps 

 

"Karl is very helpful with painting. He has helped me improve my work a lot... I'm much more confident in acrylics and I'm really enjoying working with oil paints. Being in Karl’s class is really fun - he is very funny and plays great music!"  Aly, Age 13

"...we are so impressed with your teaching and her progress this last year...we really have seen a spark in her art, and her most recent oil efforts are all looking great. Art is her passion, and I'm thrilled she's found a great teacher to help her along this path."  Joe, Aly's Dad

 

Adult Classes: Returning to Art-Making, Developing Visual Language, Next Steps

"Karl helped me loosen up and to learn new skills... I enjoyed the creative drawing projects, lessons in composition, and his gentle suggestions. Great teacher for adult learners!"   

Maren Anderson, Boston

"...Karl was able to pull the artist that had been hiding in me out. Now I am able to create large works for friends and family which I've received great feedback on."   Matt T., Boston

Group Classes: The Power of Art History

"I wanted to take an art history course that inspired me, that would take a creative approach while exploring the past, but still keep my eyes and thoughts on the present. I love being able to  look both forward and back in time with the new perspectives I have gained by taking The Power of Art History." 

Sarah Bob, Founding Creative Director

"As a teacher, Karl has the remarkable ability to inspire and relate to students of all ages. His love of art and art-making is genuine and infectious. He has an uncanny ability to keep students focused and productive for hours, whether in his studio-based classes or the hushed galleries of the MFA. Karl has an exhaustive knowledge of art history and a visual memory to match. My work with Karl helped me prepare a strong portfolio for application to the Tufts-SMFA’s masters in fine arts program, where I am now a 2nd year graduate student. I base this on my first-hand experiences as a student in his painting classes, an observer of his MFA-based drawing classes and a participant in his Power of Art History online course."
