Karen Watson Johnson started out her career as a primary school teacher while earning her Degree in Early Childhood Education. She went on to study at Regis College in Weston, MA and graduated with a Bacherlor of Arts in Sociology and immediately launched her career in residential real estate sales and marketing. Later she circled back to her heart's passion to become an artist and teacher and began to work towards an MFA in Studio Painting at The Museum of Fine Arts School, Boston. During this time she met the acclaimed painter and gallery owner, William St. George, in the Back Bay, Boston, and she felt a passionate connection to his style of painting and the vibrant colors that he used. This connection lead to her taking classes with him, which proved to be an excellent match and a big inspiration for Karen to keep following her passion. Together with St. George's direction and guidance (www.stgeorgegallery.com ) during studio classes and plein air excursions, she produced some of her best work. Karen has earned her Massachusetts teaching certifications in Early Childhood, Elementary and Middle School Education.

My daughter has been painting with Mrs. Johnson for almost 3 years. Karen is an amazing instructor, with such impressive talent of her own. It's a great experience for my daughter to be taught by someone so kind and professional. Alison, Dover, Ma
You really helped boost my daughter's self-esteem and confidence so thank you! You really give a special gift to the children and as a parent, I can't thank you enough! Parent, Dover, MA
My son loved taking art classes with Mrs. Johnson. He learned great techniques and came home with beautiful paintings. Mrs. Johnson is wonderful with the kids. I loved how she had them all gather in a group and say something positive to their peers' finished peices of art work! Brittany, Medfield, MA
I loved the painting the my son completed last week. Every time I look at it, it gets better and better to me. And I think you're providing a wonderful atmostphere to grow all these young artists! Doug, Medfield, MA
