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...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!

My daughter has attended several of the Wingspan Studio camps including Oh La La! She has loved them! M. Maggie is knowledgable and offers children a unique, culturally rich experience. Much thanks for her great efforts!

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!

I love that there's a place for kids to learn French in a fun and art-filled environment! My son attended a week-long summer camp in 2013, and Maggie's studio is a great place for learning and art. We're signed up again this year for the summer cartooning session with some friends. I wish I could go too!

L'ours est allé sur la montagne. That is what I heard as my 4 year old son and I were painting "The Bear Went Over The Mountain" in Madame Maggie's class.
My wife and two kids have been going to Madame Maggie's for over a month and already, my two year old will let out some French around the house. It is so adorable when she says "ohh la la." They always have an exciting story for me when I come home from work.
/> Now we are going to Saturday's class and I get to attend. After one class, I am in love with it. It is great for the kids. And, since it engages everyone who attends, it is great for the parents as well!...more

I am in my second session of FRART with my 4 yr old and 2 yr old. This is a great and engaging class for the children and for me too! Maggie makes learning French fun and incorporates it into art projects that the kids love. It's a great way for both adults and children to learn French.

My two daughters attended camp with Maggie two summers ago. Maggie is a lovely person with a sparkling personality and a gentle soul. I wholeheartedly recommend sending your kids to camp with Maggie if they have a strong interest in art.

My daughter aged 9 at the time LOVED THE Ooh LaLa Art Camp!! Not only did she get to do some very creative art, but she learned some French, geography and new culture, as well made some new friends. She especially loved the performance they put on for all of us parents on the last day and said she wished it was a two week camp!!
