    Catherine Karp has been the best art teacher my daughter could have. We have tried a few different art classes and none have compared to this. If we were to say a few words about her art classes, they would be fun, interesting, lots of learning and exciting!!! My daughter can't wait for the art class each week and I would highly recommend Catherine Karp.

At the first meeting I find out what the interests and artistic ability level is of the student. I work with the student to find the most meaningful method, whether that means the ideas come from the student or me.

BA is art and art history, MA in elementary education. Art21 Educator. Teacher with over 20 years of experience.
