I teach drawing, painting, including encaustic (wax) and mixed media collage. Recently I’ve developed a fondness for creating Tiny House (sculptures.) I focus on attention to detail and making the art your own.
I teach at several art centers in the MD/DC area. My art and sample student art on my website-
Much of my art involves looking closely at nature. Teaching the unique medium of encaustic (wax) and sharing its attributes and application has helped me realize its artistic depths, including how it can be a sculptural medium.
Guiding students in LOOKING is how I share my love of art, and how to best connect to your subject, or object you are drawing or painting.
Marcie is a gifted artist and teacher - and an incredibly kind person! She worked in partnership with me - stepping in when I asked for help - and letting me do my own thing. I love her art which gives me great trust in her suggestions/guidance. She is a lovely person to spend time with on top of it all. I recommend her highly.
Marcie inspires me to create art. When you work with Marcie, you are working with someone who clearly loves creating art, is extremely skilled, and wants her students to share the same passion. An accomplished artist that can teach is a gift.
I have taken several classes with Marcie, and she would always start the class with instruction and an explanation of the supplies that she brought with her. Then she would leave us on our own to work while walking around the room and helping each person. This individual encouragement was great -- I always produced something new and loved what I was able to do at each class. She provided such a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere that I forgot the time. The other thing that I really enjoyed was all the material that Marcie had with her at each class. She explained many different techniques at each session so I was able to explore different things. Marcie made everyone comfortable in the classroom, so the interaction with the other students was very, very pleasant.
I will introduce students to different mediums, art processes and see what they are most interested in.
