The same class that Marietta teaches for MCPL can be fun for your child, a small craft group, or a wine night!

Experienced in both the student and teacher side.

Marietta knows what it's like to be in the student's chair: She started drawing caricatures professionally at just 15 years old.  She would go on to lead the exact same training she went through to learn caricatures before moving on from retail.  For the past decade, Marietta has offered her Intro to Caricatures course to many students, from those with absolutely no art background to current event artists looking to refine their skills.  Their improvement during this single class with Marietta is astounding!  Take a look:

Great for everyone!

Marietta can teach a wide range of ages, from 10 to 100!  The Intro to Caricatures class is great for everyone, from a budding young artist to a fun ladies night.  The class can be used as a fun activity at a birthday party or a retirement home, or it can be a 1-on-1 session to finetune your skills.
