Madame Maggie is wonderful! My kids have such a great time with her and she has been kind, generous and flexible. My boys come home with imaginative artwork made cleverly from beautiful materials, and this is done entirely in French! Incredible! We will be back!

I took adult French from Madame Maggie after a long hiatus from language study, and she was a perfect teacher. Patient, fun, knowledgable, and with an innate curiosity that makes her successful at teaching all ages. Also a wonderful artist, I think she brings new ways of seeing to her classes. The learning atmosphere is vibrant and laid-back, yet effective. I was so sorry when the class ended. Highly recommended!

Madame Maggie has a beautiful studio in the heart of the South End Art District. The space invites creativity, and Madame Maggie offers abundant supplies for students to express themselves with. I had the pleasure of guest teaching for her last summer, and was impressed with her gentle and thoughtful approach to teaching, her joy in supporting students in their art and language studies, and her generosity in sharing her studio space. /> The campers enjoyed a varied program of instruction and free time, indoor and outdoor play, and plenty of opportunities to bond among themselves, and with the instructors.
I highly recommend Wingspan Studio's unique series of summer camps!...more

My two year old and I recently attended FRART with Madame Maggie and it was fantastic. She is great with the kids and encourages everyone - including the parents (I know i struggled way more than my daughter : ) The art projects were always fun - we have them hanging all over our house. I will def be taking another class in the future and look forward to learning more and more along with my toddler!

Maggie is a gifted and talented teacher. She teaches with an open mind and heart. My children have been the lucky beneficiaries of Maggie's talents for many years. She is able to get all the creative juices flowing from them and have a really fun experience at the same time. Her artistic knowledge of color and textures is limitless and helps the kids to explore past what they think they know.
My only regret is that we will not be in Vermont this summer for my kids to get a "Maggie class." ...more

I had beginner's French with Madame Maggie, I had never learned a word in French before and I felt like that I learn quite a lot. She is a great teacher, and very patient, which is a plus when you are trying to learn French!

We took our little one to a French art class on a cold spring day and had a wonderful time. The studio space was warm and filled with creative energy. Madame Maggie was so kind and gave individual attention to each child. It was a nice balance between singing, painting, reading, and playtime!
