I really did like the manga camp because we did so many interesting projects and I even made my own comic! What I like about this camp is they have a manga comic so you know about manga drawing and a manga drawing book which is very helpful at times. I honestly have no negative things about this camp. Maggie the instructor was really nice, very supportive and her instructions were clear. Sure cannot wait for the next camp!

Wingspan Studio and Madame Maggie are a real treat! I have taken Intermediate Adult French with Madame Maggie, and her studio is warm and welcoming and her teaching style is interactive and fun. Maggie creates a wonderful sense of community among her students and facilitates the group with ease. I can also vouch for her work with youth in the community as Maggie helped connect me with educators in the Burlington School District when I...more

My 5-year-old took Miss Maggie's summer camp session on French, Art and Geography this past summer and absolutely loved it! She came home singing french songs and telling me about fairy houses, and they did a sweet performance at the end of the session showing off their new french words and their beautiful artistic creations. It was a great week!

I have known Maggie for 25 years; she's a dear friend who speaks and writes excellent French. In addition to her talents as an artist (and others too numerous to list here), she's a dedicated educator and taps into each person's unique talents and way of approaching the world to help them appreciate and learn. In addition to our friendship, she has helped me by giving me the great gift of tapping into my own creativity.

My son (7 years old) has had a great experience this summer with Maggie Standley and friends at Wingspan Studio in Burlington’s South End art space. He attended a class that focused on art, music and nature—which led to a culminating performance that included African drumming and simple yet brilliant costumes. Not only did he connect with new friends and enjoy working with Miss Maggie, he brought home impressive art projects and a...more

These camps are wonderful! It is great how Maggie manages to weave together the French language and culture, together with some wonderful painting. She is also great at working with different ages and levels of both French, and painting skills – not just younger school children but including the teenage set. Very highly recommend!

This past spring break both my daughter and son, ages 8 & 7, attended Wingspan's camp French and African Art. Historically my daughter has been a malcontent of the highest order. She has attended camps before. I've picked up a happy smiling girl and by the time we get home, she tells me she hates camp and doesn't want to go back. So imagine my joy when she woke me up on the third morning of French and African Art saying, "I love camp." Both...more
