For the last 20 years, he has taught art to students from kindergarten through college in Arizona and Belfast and currently is on the art department faculty of Camden Hills Regional High School in Rockport. He has exhibited his work in galleries and museums in Maine, Massachusetts and Arizona. Kahn has been a mentor in Waterfall Arts’ Branching Out Program since it began and has a way of inspiring people to push forward in their creativity.
