Group classes in oil and watercolor painting and private lessons.
I feel freer.
Margaret is wonderful art teacher. She is clear, concise and articulate in her instruction as well as respectful of different styles and influences. Most importantly, she is a very kind person. It is lovely to be in her presence and to observe her own work while she instructs students. There is no “wrong” answer in Margaret’s class, she helps the student perfect the student’s vision of the subject and gently guides the student using classic painting principles.
Margaret, thank you so much for your class last spring. When I came into your studio, I was nervous, almost afraid of the paint or perhaps afraid that I couldn’t use my brushes and oils to create anything anymore. You gave me a new vocabulary for beginning a painting and over time helped me to loosen up. I started to play again and I lost track of time. Your knowledge, technical skill, kindness and good humor have made you a fine teacher and I look forward to your classes in the future.
