Dear Mrs. Meade, I wanted to thank you for all you have done for my daughter, Rebecca. She has been a student in your art program for over five years. During that time, you have helped her experience different media and worked with her to define which areas are “hers”. It is so
obvious that your love for art and children is such a strong motivating force.

– Pat W., Mother of Student

Hello Mrs. Meade, I wanted to thank you for providing me with an incredible artistic foundation. Since the day I started taking classes with you, I have aspired to excel as much as you in my career. I just graduated from the University of Mary Washington in December with a degree in studio art. I wish I had stuck in your classes for many more years because even at a young age, you were willing to stretch my abilities!

– Kelly. F., Former Student

Mrs. Meade’s art classes changed my life. I learned not only the basics and complexities of many types of media, but also formed the foundation for my artistic expression. Mrs. Meade was not only my teacher but also my friend. Each week I would look forward to her class and I always left feeling extremely happy.

– Mia. R., Former Student

My preteen daughter feels that she has found the perfect art teacher.  She looks forward to her private 2-hour session every week.  She comes home beaming with confidence and inspiration; often explaining details of the piece she is working on.  Mrs. Meade is a true artisan and a gifted teacher.

Julie. P.  Mother of Student

Margaret Meade helped me fulfill my dream of becoming an artist.   I had retired and began my second career at Meade Art Studio.  I had never had an art lesson.   Margaret is a wonderful and talented artist.   She genuinely cares about us and our growth as an artist.  I learn something new at each class.  She is truly amazing!  Margaret makes art relaxing and fun. 

– Rose Marie P., Student

When I first started taking classes with Mrs. Meade, I was new to art. Initially I was not sure of my ability level, and I had trouble drawing from my imagination. After working with Mrs. Meade, I now have my own artistic style and I know how to trust my own abilities.  Mrs. Meade is an incredible artist and teacher. I have recommended her to several of my friends who now take lessons.

Amanda W. Former Student

I attended Meade’s Art Studio for more than 11 years and had the opportunity to grow as an artist and as a person under the guidance of Margaret Meade. The greatest part of taking art classes from Mrs. Meade was learning through experience at my own pace, rather than through a set curriculum and teaching method.  This approach allowed me to master difficult artistic techniques in a fun and stress-free way and taught me that creating artwork is a relaxing and cathartic activity.

Christina. D., Former Student

We are extremely happy with Meade’s Art Studio – Margaret Meade’s teaching methods provide a solid foundation for her students to refine and improve their artistic skills. Our daughter’s talent has flourished over the years she has been attending classes with the Studio and we always look forward to seeing her next piece!

Brian F., Father of Student

I have been attending Meade Art Studio for nearly ten years and I can absolutely attest to the efficacy of Mrs. Meade’s teaching method. Her patience, diligence and peerless technical expertise make her an excellent teacher, and the individual attention coupled with the group environment provides a non-stressful yet engaging environment in the studio. I have yet to find the same extensive range of effective techniques taught anywhere else.

Ksusha. M., Student

My daughter is a student at Meade Art Studios under the skilled guidance of Mrs. Margaret Meade.  It takes a great teacher to nurture artistic talents and Mrs. Meade has this ability to guide her students to become great at what they do.  All her students produce such amazing artwork!  I am very grateful my daughter is a student of Meade Art Studios.

Elizabeth, Parent of Student

Margaret Meade has been my daughter’s art instructor for the past several years.  She offers an open environment in her studio where students are taught and encouraged to develop their art skills.  She has a great understanding of art and as a knowledgeable and skilled teacher she gives instruction, support, and motivation to each of her students.

Constance B., Mother of Student

One day my daughter came to me and said she would like to take art lessons with her friend at Meade Art Studio. Mrs. Meade’s vast knowledge and expertise in the fine arts gave my daughter the solid foundation she needed to pursue her love for art in college. She studied abroad in France one summer and will graduate with a BFA and licensure to teach art K-12. What started out as taking an art lesson for fun, turned out to be her future career.
