Karen took her first glass class in 2000 and fell in love with the medium. She poured her heart into learning from her favorite teachers, and even traveled to Italy to further her education.
When Karen discovered metal clay, she was immediately captivated and dived right in with the same passion she had pursued glass with. She took as many metal clay classes as she could find all over the US, connecting with wonderful teachers who made the artistic journey as much fun as the destination.
Karen is a certified metal clay instructor through Art Clay World and PMC Connection.
Artist Karen Hakim-Butt teaches glass fusing and metal clay jewelry classes that can help you use mixed media and 3-D effects in your art.
There is such joy and serenity in making art. I find it meditative yet exhilarating. To me, there is no greater joy than sharing this experience with others through my teaching! Come join me for a class and experience the pleasure of making art. No experience necessary. You will be successful, I promise. Please check out the gallery of student work - all were beginners when they arrived for class (this section is coming soon).
