Maggie Siner is a devoted teacher who has influenced a generation of painters around the world.  She began her studies in 1968 at the Art Students League of New York, graduated from Boston University (BFA) and American University (MFA) and has lived in France, China and Italy.  She has been on on the faculty of Lacoste School of Art and l'Institut Americain Universitaire in France. She has been a professor of art at Xiamen University in China, artist in residence at the Savannah College of Art and Design and Dean of Faculty at the Washington Studio School and teaches many workshops around the country.  Maggie works exclusively from life and is known for her free and responsive brushwork, evocative portraits, luscious still-lfe arrangements and a sparkling play of light and shadow emphasizing the momentary nature of vision and time.

Maggie begins her workshop with a slide presentation the first evening that sets the tone for the workshop.  Maggie shares her experience generously with her students and gives individual critiques for development. Students will learn how to acquire color sensitivity, to see shapes of light and dark, make strong compositions, use brush work for gestural unity and develop good studio practices.
