Materials will include any pastels you wish to bring, as well as the above mentioned mediums, any surfaces you like to work on, sketchbook, soluble pens i.e. Swan Stabilo or similar, and of course an open mind/willingness to experiment/sense of humor!


Student Feedback

Margret was just awesome! I received instruction that will change my use of pastel medium forever. She is so normal and brilliant. She was so good about addressing the needs of every student and medium represented.”

I wasn’t looking for a vacation, I wanted at least a full week of time to learn and produce art. My questions were well answered, the feedback very helpful and I had plenty of time to work on over 10 pieces of art.”

Margaret is very versatile, which allowed progress for all.
