Art Teacher as Surgeon

I received this wonderful testimonial from a participant in my mixed-media workshop:

“I wanted to learn some texturing, blurring, & layering techniques for collage. Mary is an actual fount of knowledge about mixed media. But in our sessions, she zeroed in surgically on what each person specifically wanted to learn, which was great. She has all the stuff, so you can experiment and find your mode without a big layout of money. She explains well, demonstrates, answers all your questions, then frees you to experiment without judgment. Seeing what the possibilities were from her demos, then playing with all the stuff in her lovely bay-windowed studio — that was really fun.”

I often felt I was skimming over so many techniques because the group was so enthusiastic and had so many questions. So to be told I had zeroed in surgically was very affirming.

Next series starts March 17, 2015 2-4pm.  $70 for 5 2-hour sessions.

Groups are tiny (2-3 people) so if you want a different time, let me know and we’ll see what we can do.
