Meet Your Teacher...

Karen Brake Barge is a native Texan born and raised in Dallas, now living in southern California. She grew up attending Lakeside Baptist Church with her family. Karen was first interested in art when she was accepted into an honors art class at the age of 13. She has been creating art non-stop since then.

Karen received a Bachelors of Fine Arts Degree from The University of North Texas and went back to school to get a degree in Computer Graphics in Multimedia a few years later. In 1992, Karen pursued a career in California as a graphic designer in the video game industry. She worked for GTE/Verizon for 9 years. After that she ran her own graphic design corporation for 6 years.

Along the way, she taught a variety of art classes for ages 4 to 85. She created her own curriculum for classes at the Vista Art Foundation’s Gallery 204 and held teaching positions at several Montessori and Catholic schools.

Christian Art Lessons was founded in March 2014.

“Realizing that the arts allow for pure excitement and true expression which all comes from our Creator, I want to be the one to enrich the lives of children and adults through the arts.” -Karen

What people are saying...

“This class exceeded my expectations! Karen is very clear and guides you step-by-step in the creative process! It makes it easy to follow her instructions. Both my 6 year old boy and my 9 year old girl loved the crazy paint class. They keep creating more and more pictures. Great job Karen and Thank you.”

-Marco S. (Father)

“What a great lesson, what else can I say. Good and very useful examples, nice tips that you can apply right away. Enthusiastic and clearly explained. Thanks again for this lesson. My whole class loved this project.”

-Jesse J. (Art Teacher)

“Ms. Karen is so creative and helps us be more creative than most teachers. She helped me take a simple project like the sun line lesson and make it so much more interesting.”

-Kayla E. (Age 14)


“Mrs. Barge is my favorite teacher. I have taken every one of her summer and winter camps. She is now teaching me how to paint acrylic on canvas. My mom says we have run out of room for my art. We are going to have to buy another house.”

-Ashley S. (Age 8)

“Love Karen’s enthusiasm level, and personality. Her class is done well in every way: organized, actionable, great pace. Her drawing prompts and suggestions are going to be very helpful to me. The downloadable documents were very helpful to re-enforce remembering. Thanks Karen!”

-Linda Mae O.

“As a beginner artist, I truly appreciated your “ease” in your demeanor: you are very approachable, Karen, and easy to be with. Your projects have a positive aura, confident yet not intimating which allows a pleasant environment to create art! I loved your video workshops … I also loved the Christmas Paint Party”

-Aly Dobek (Retired Beginner Artist)
