Ken Orrett's Magic Carpet Ride

When Ken Orrett entered our college classroom that first time I thought he looked like Santa Claus with a Bahamian tan. Jovial and bursting with knowledge, he was here to teach art history, a subject I knew very little about. He explained that, while he loved teaching art history, he was primarily an artist and had been painting for nearly forty years. But he had a secret. Read about it (here).


  1. this is a great story...and what a realization he had...and he probably taught you more that last day of class than any other class....very cool

  2. "What was this S*#T? Certainly not art."

    Every artist has their critics
