Margot was very personable and knowledgeable about the calligraphic style that I wanted to know. I do window painting and wanted to have a better understanding to apply to my own work and felt like I was given the tools and knowldege to do that.

As a teacher for 7 years one of my favorite things is bringing the arts into teaching. I've taught infants through adults, beginners and advanced, and the one secret I can absolutely tell you about learning, is if you are happy then you are going to learn a lot more! I'm excited to get to know you and make you smile!

One of my favorite categories of painting is abstract. I love to see colors swirl, shapes form, and ideas flow in a free form way. Abstract is great for beginners, because you get a chance to grow in your confidence while growing your blending and brush technique.

About Loren

I'm an artist, musician, and language aficionada. I have a Bachelor's Degree from the University of Georgia, graduating with honors as a Magna Cum Laude in Spanish and French Linguistics. I am fluent in both languages. One thing I love about teaching is bringing the arts into the process of learnin

Loren taught French to my eight year old daughter. My daughter picked up basic vocabulary just in three months and she enjoyed the lessons so much. Loren taught French using songs and some fun activities making it interesting for the child. Loren is a very kind and patient teacher.
