Karen King - Artist and Teacher
Karen King has been teaching painting and drawing since 1990 and just loves the creativity and relaxation it brings her. Karen has exhibited in many art exhibitions on the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane and is an active member of the Collaboration of Maleny Artists as well as the Maleny Fine Art Group. An award winning artist with more than 20 years painting experience teaching on the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane and surrounding rural districts. A published artist who co-authored an art book with good friend Megan as well has having several of her paintings and editorials published by internationally distributed art magazines.
Coming from a commercial teaching environment in her early working career has given her many of her teaching skills allowing her the ability to teach people of varying painting levels even those who have absolutely no previous painting experience.
"Teaching and painting are my passion and my philosophy is that you do not need to be “gifted” or have a “natural ability” to create beautiful art. Painting and drawing are teachable art forms and I can teach you how to achieve your goals at a pace, which best suits you and your ability. Painting is a passion and no matter if you want to paint or draw for pleasure or professionally you may need some help along the way to get there and I am here to assist you in your painting journey".
No matter if it is oils, acrylics, watercolour or pastels we use them all. Teaching and working in all styles and mediums and experimenting with new ideas and products is certainly challenging but produces a creative and productive environment and opens up new horizons
Karen has classes on weekdays, weekends and evenings with regular workshops and specialty days. She also holds “Kids Art” classes after school and is Blue Card accredited.
