FairyDust Faces

Bio
Karen first started drawing as a child. Her favorite subjects were birds. All kinds of birds; birds in flight, birds eating worms, birds with huge plumage. At 10 she began copying, line for line the works of Michelangelo and da Vinci. It wasn't until after years of oil and acrylic painting, followed by charcoal figure drawing and award winning work in cake decorating that Karen brought her skills to face painting.

Currently Karen, mother of 5, leads a girl scout troop, and teaches storytelling for kids and face painting at a local school. This summer you can find her teaching henna to teens through the Sonoma County Library System, working at the Cotati Farmer's Market as well as doing live painting demonstrations at Santa Rosa's Friday 'Summer Nights' program.

Storyteller

Category: Acting / Drama
Description
Storytelling is what connects us as a community and a people. Stories are an antidote to the growing sense of disconnection from what is real and deep and meaningful in our individual and collective lives. As life speeds up, stories tie us together and provide the golden thread that guides us back home. Children especially need a dose of life affirming story. The arts are something that has been cut from the curriculum of most struggling schools, but it is through the arts that children are provided an alternative form of emotional and expressive outlet. Storytelling is accessible to all, regardless of age or ability. No special equipment or prior knowledge is necessary to employ the power of imagination and the opportunity to learn through listening.
