Hello! I'm Miss Margie. I've been teaching art in school classrooms, privately at my home or students' homes, and online for over 20 years. I'm blessed with the skill of drawing. I can draw anything, and I'm really good at showing my students how to draw. Skilled drawing and drafting is the foundation and essential tool needed for all significant art. Even the most abstract painters began their careers with fundamental drawing skills. I offer a variety of classes, so you'll be able to watercolor paint, or use colored pencils or even markers, to fill your drawings with beautiful colors. I also teach pencil sketching and shading if you're interested in photo-realism using pencils only. I'm here to help you achieve success in creating beautiful, significant art. I look forward to the opportunity to teach you

Margie is a complete pro. She handles all skill levels with encouragement and support, but also offers constructive and helpful pointers to actually improve skills. She is kind, talented, and makes me look forward to art projects!
Margie is a phenomenal art instructor and artist – I highly recommend her classes to art learners of all ages! Whether you are interested in improving and practicing new art skills or looking for a fun art activity for your kids or with friends, Margie’s art classes are right for you! Margie gives excellent step-by-step instruction to create a wide variety of art subjects and styles, and can teach any art medium (watercolor paint, colored pencil, acrylic, etc.) in virtual and in-person settings. During lessons, Margie is great at giving individual feedback to each student in both group and individual sessions and encourages her students to explore and express their own creativity while they create – you will have a lot of fun and feel proud of the art you make in Margie’s classes. I took several of Margie’s art lessons with a group of friends (adult age group) and we learned to create a wide variety of subjects (nature, floral, animal, & human subjects) and learned to use several different mediums including watercolor, colored pencil, oil pastels, pencil & marker – I learned something new with every image/medium, love the art we got to create, and had the best time!
Our experience with Miss Margie teaching our daughter Art Classes has been life-changing for our daughter. Ms. Margie's attention to detail and understanding of the foundation skills needed to be an artist could not be more competent. Our daughter is becoming a fantastic artist and is getting attention in middle school from the local magnet high schools due to her ability to create art based on the foundation skills that Ms. Margie has given her. I don't think you could find any better teacher in the United States than Ms. Margie. Through these art lessons our daughter has gained a confidence in herself, the ability to create beautiful works of art, and a deep understanding of the foundation skills required in art. We have been with Ms. Margie for three years and do not intend to stop lessons anytime soon. There is no doubt in my mind that Ms. Margie is the right teacher for your child. Ms. Margie is not only a great art teacher but a fabulous person which is rare in the teacher these days. You will definitely be getting more than your money's worth from Ms. Margie. No one cares more than Ms. Margie about providing a great education in art. You will not be disappointed.
