About Karen Margulis

Hi Everyone!
Welcome to my Patreon page. My name is Karen Margulis and I love to paint and share what I do! I am a full time artist and instructor based in the Atlanta, Georgia area. I love all media but I am passionate about pastels. I have achieved signature status with the Pastel Society of America and Master Circle recognition with the International Association of Pastel Societies. I have been teaching pastel painting at workshops around the world and through my blog and You Tube videos. I am an avid Daily Painter and love to share tips and techniques that have helped me grow as an artist . I hope to inspire and help you on your painting journey!

What I offer
My goal is to share my knowledge and inspire my supporters. I love to SIMPLIFY the painting process. No matter what your level of experience, I want to make the learning process easy and fun while challenging you.
If you choose to be a supporter and make a pledge you will receive an ongoing variety of instruction in pastel and painting. This page is evolving but my intention for it to be a platform to share an expanded version of my blog and videos. I will offer monthly themes with step by step demos, handouts, videos and enhanced blog post instruction.

With your support as a patron I will have time to create more art and instruction resources. 
Thank you for your support!

When I reach 1400 patrons I will be able to upgrade my video equipment. Technology changes and I'd like to keep up with the changes to help me create the best quality videos. I have my eye on some new equipment such as camera and microphone that will help me improve video quality as well as let us take the camera on the road for some location demos! Thank you for your support!
