I have a great library of music to choose from. I also own nearly every instrument that I teach so that I may demonstrate and play along.

Marlisa J.

Bethesda, MD

About Marlisa

I am a potter who specializes in functional tableware. I teach in my studio and also at local art centers. I teach throwing on the potter's wheel and hand-building. My work has been exhibited in national juried shows.

I also am a textile artisan. My love is doll-making, in the Waldorf style. I teach knitting (Continental style), crochet, and sewing.

My other love is gardening. I grow tree and herbaceous peonies. My cottage style garden is planted for fragrance and naturalness. I emphasize growing perennials because their beauty increases each year.

I have had nothing but the best experience working with Marlisa. She is patient, she takes the time to verify that you've grasped a concept you're struggling with and works to find the best way to communicate with YOU. I don't think anyone would regret spending an hour or two learning and chatting with Marlisa. I feel so inspired and more confident each time I leave a session. If you're on the fence about trying this; don't hesitate!

Marlisa is a very kind, patient and knowledgeable teacher. I took my granddaughter to her for a pottery lesson and she was very happy with Marlisa's teaching, resulting in her being able to throw a bowl on the wheel that she can actually use. I would highly recommend Marlisa as a teacher for students of all ages!

Marlisa is an awesome teacher. I took a pottery class at Glen Echo years ago and was very disappointed, but with Marlisa's excellent teaching skills and enthusiasm for the art, I left her studio feeling like I wanted to buy a wheel and start throwing. I appreciate her hands-on approach and always felt taken care of attended to. Marlisa is a true artist and excellent teacher!!! I highly recommend her.

Mariana was a great tutor. I am an adult with little experience speaking French. I enjoyed our conversations and she made learning the language very enjoyable. I hope to continue.

Mariana has been an incredible instructor. I came to her as an adult with no previous understanding of French. Her passion for teaching and knowledge of not only the language, but the culture as well, are unparalleled. She immediately made me feel confident by including conversation in our first lesson. I could not have asked for a better introduction to French. I highly recommend Mariana as your first choice for French!
