2018 Painting Workshops

Mary’s workshops help artists hone their skills and loosen up. Mary discusses ways to create stronger composition, how to use  tone and color successfully, and to work quickly without getting stuck. Mary works mostly with oils, but invites acrylic painters as well, and can instruct in both mediums. 
Mary is honored to be named a Gamblin Dedicated Workshop Instructor by Gamblin Artists Colors, Inc.

TestimonialsClass session at Hubley Gallery

“Encouraging knowledgeable kind instruction – I have learned so much about painting and myself. I have learned when to stop!” — Clare Howard

“Mary gets an A+. She is terrific and I am learning so much!” — Debi Russillo

“Mary is a fantastic teacher! She is encouraging, positive, and has a wonderful sense of humor. She is a fabulous artist and she knows how to impart her knowledge and skill to us students. I plan to take more classes from her and am thankful to have her as my teacher!” — Ellen Gugisberg

“Now I know why people draw and paint. Its not about being good, its about being in that Right Brain and having no other outside thoughts beside the drawing or painting you are working on. After yesterdays drawing class, I realized that during the drawing, nothing in my life existed, no workshops1worries, no to-do list, no people. It was incredible. You should all consider trying it, not to be great artists, of course that is an option, but just for the pure pleasure of being in that space. Shutting off your brain and mouth and just being creative. Wow, what a joy. And the peace is so nice.”
