Mrs. Karp

I am excited to be starting another year at Lincoln Academy!  I was born and raised in Denver, Colorado and love living in our wonderful state. I graduated from Rocky Mountain College of Art & Design in 2019, majoring in Art Education with an emphasis in Fine Arts. When I'm not in the classroom, I love reading, gardening, and making art! While I love all types of artmaking, I am particularly passionate about ceramics, sculpture, printmaking, and installation.
