Want to improve your realist drawing skills with ongoing step-by-step guidance and support? If so, I am here to provide students with a methodical approach to classical realism based on the traditions founded during the Renaissance. We will follow the curriculum I learned in studying classical art with emphasis on the handling of materials, accurate observation of 2-D shapes, the relationship between light and form and a how to bring a drawing to a high level of refinement. The exercises increase in difficulty as skills become more refined; this helps the student to not get overwhelmed and stay focused. Drawing is the foundation of all art and what you learn here will help guide you throughout your artistic career. I'm excited to work with you and look forward to helping you achieve your artistic goals!

If you’re interested in learning photography – congratulations! Photography is a fun, practical hobby as well as an exciting career. Although learning photography does take a little patience, the rewards are certainly worth it. So, let’s start with the benefits of why you should learn photography.

- The ability to record special events like a child’s birthday, graduation or the family’s vacations with clear, focused well composed photographs.

- Never missing a picture of a special moment because you were searching for the right button or dial.

- Taking photos that you and your loved ones will enjoy displaying on your wall. By capturing your special memories in pictures, you can have a way to document and pass on these memories to future generations.

- Communicating through your photographs. A picture really is worth a thousand words! You can capture an expression that says it all. Or as we've seen in magazines like Time and National Geographic, you can shoot photographs ...

Hello! If you want to learn the art of calligraphy? I’m here for you. I have taught classes before and have the supplies. I’d be most willing to share what I know with others who would be interested in keeping this art form alive!

About Marsha

I have students from all over ! Hope one is YOU. It is great to be able to offer the option to ALL students if they prefer to come to the studio, or have remote lessons, and a HUGE plus, is they don't have to cancel when ill or even sometimes when away from home with the remote lesson option!

Marsha is a wonderful music teacher! She has an organized lesson plan, she's always willing to set aside the lesson plan if I want to do something different that day, she gives very gentle feedback, and I always have so much fun with her during lessons. I highly recommend!
Fred R.
I have been taking lessons with Marsha for several months. Marsha has been helping me immensely to become a better singer. I am a novice vocalist and Marsha has worked with me patiently. I feel as if I have been progressing nicely with my vocal training.
Beth
I worked with Marsha for about 10 weeks. Singing was something on my "bucket list" and I wanted to find out why I didn't know how to do it. I learned a ton from Marsha, and I also learned that I wasn't a hopeless case!!

"Margot is a great instructor and a born teacher. She immediately connects with each student. She asks everyone’s name and then remembers it, which is quite impressive with a large group.
She can teach to all levels of ‘artistic’ ability. She offers assistance and guidance so the finished product truly belongs to the student.
I have been to two of Margot’s classes. I have zero artistic ability, yet I left with a card (Valentine and Mother’s Day), that I was proud to share."

"Jessica is a GREAT drawing teacher! My two daughters aged 7 and 9 have been having lessons with Jessica for a couple of months and she has done such an excellent job of catering to their very different personalities and preferred learning styles. She is so patient and calm. She has taught them various techniques, including how to work with charcoal, and they have both improved so much in such a short time. My kids really look forward to their lesson every time, and carry on with their projects when the lesson is over. I highly recommend her!"
