"I personally enjoy teaching children and adults about the many techniques in a given medium. It excites me to watch a student grasp a concept and have the whole world of creativity open up for them. I believe anyone can learn to draw, they just need the modivation to learn and the right instruction.
I promarily work in watercolor or oil in my personal work. I have been painting and drawing since I was really young. Born and raised in Colorado, I am inspired by the light, colors, and textures in nature. To me, art is meant to be beautiful and leave an impression in your mind, much like nature does. My mission as an artist is to create that beauty and also to teach it to others." - Mary Langewisch

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

All class descriptions, details, and the registration process are on our website (FragileGloryImpressions.com/studio-classes). An upfront registration fee of $25 is required during the registration process, which is payable online within the registration form.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Mary has 20+ years of art experience and 10+ years of teaching. Starting at age 12, Mary attended a local professional studio where she attended all classes in every medium. In college attended Metroplitan State University to study art. Mary has also attended workshops at Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Aspen, Colorado.


How did you get started teaching?

At Age 4 Mary had told her parents that she wanted to be a teacher. Being the oldest of 4 children, she loved playing school with her siblings. She was often found creating curriculum for a future class, even with no prospective students in sight. By Age 10, after taking classes at a local art studio, a dream had developed: she wanted to own a studio of her own like that someday. Mary was 11 when she started making her artwork into note cards and selling them at craft fairs around Denver. Two years later she started teaching her first drawing class to some kids in the neighborhood. By high school she was teaching up to 65 students a semester all around the Denver area along with the selling of her new card styles. In 2013 Mary found a small space to call her studio to create art in and teach. The dream was becoming more of a reality. Mary now teaches up to 60 students every semester, she's creating new art products every year, and getting her artwork on display in the Colorado area.


What types of students have you worked with?

Ages 7 - adult


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

During the Summer I love getting up really early with friends and/or family to go hike South Table Mountain and watch the sunrise.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Each student deserves to be taught the fundamentals of their chosen medium, however their creativity must not be stiffled in the process. Instead, creativity should be cultivated to a level that makes each student beam with excitment, hunger for more, and reach their artistic goals. This is our mission at F.G.I. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What are they truly passionate about? What are your artistic goals? What are some ways to reach those goals? Is the teacher personable and able to create a fun, productive, and creative environment?
