Having recently retired as assistant professor at Montserrat College of Art, Charlie Allen now devotes his time to teaching at The Academy, painting and traveling. For several years Charlie worked at the Peabody Museum (now Peabody-Essex Museum) in Salem, MA; while there, he was asked to copy marine paintings and his interest in oils began. This interest later led to portrait commissions. Charlie’s portrait work and oil paintings hang in various institutions and private collections on the North Shore of Boston. Visit charlieallenart.com

Charlie is a graduate of New England School of Art and Design, Massachusetts College of Art (B.F.A.) and Lesley University (M. Ed. in Art Education – Creative Arts in Learning.)
