Class participant comments:

Margaret’s relaxed, easy manner creates a comfortable environment for the beginner or advanced student.  Her instruction includes many different ways to work with watercolors which has opened up a new world for me.
Margaret encourages her students to stretch their imagination and skills beyond the ‘comfort zone.’ There is no such word as failure in her classes, only opportunities to experiment and try, try again and find a measure of success. With her help I came to appreciate my own style.

The best mantra Margaret uses is, “It’s only paper!” Her fearless approach allowed me to be creative and try larger and looser paintings.  After taking classes with Margaret, I was encouraged to apply for membership in the Watercolor Society of Oregon, which I did and was accepted in September, 2007.  I have gone on to sell paintings and exhibit in shows.

I love Margaret’s demos and the way she encourages ‘loosening up.’  I appreciate the way we stop along the way and evaluate our work.  Her critiques are so valuable.  She can find something good in every painting.
