Spring Tiny Home Tour
Featuring students in my adult Tiny House classes!
Marcie Wolf-Hubbard received her B.A. from the University of Maryland in Studio Art and studied Fine Art and Illustration at the Maryland Institute, College of Art. Her paintings have been exhibited widely on the East Coast. She has illustrated for magazines and books and worked as a courtroom artist.
Marcie is an instructor at Glen Echo Park, Yellow Barn Studios, The Smithsonian, and has transitioned to teaching virtually from her studio. Students come together to focus on art in what feels like an art community--- bringing people out of isolation and getting together to make art. Working with my students has also fueled me in this time of sadness and uncertainty. The attention to art has lifted anxiety and inspired us all to continue creating.
Marcie and her husband, David Hubbard, have collaborated on a children's book, "The Shiny Shell," an eco-adventure book about a boy and a dolphin on a mission to save the oceans. They are currently working on a book of David's short stories and poems and Marcie's encaustic (hot wax) paintings, which have inspired David's writing. Poems From Within is the first book in the series.

About my classes. Students say...
Marcie is a gifted artist and teacher - and an incredibly kind person! She worked in partnership with me - stepping in when I asked for help - and letting me do my own thing. I love her art which gives me great trust in her suggestions/guidance. She is a lovely person to spend time with on top of it all. I recommend her highly.
I have taken several classes with Marcie, and she would always start the class with instruction and an explanation of the supplies that she brought with her. Then she would leave us on our own to work while walking around the room and helping each person. This individual encouragement was great -- I always produced something new and loved what I was able to do at each class. She provided such a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere that I forgot the time. The other thing that I really enjoyed was all the material that Marcie had with her at each class. She explained many different techniques at each session so I was able to explore different things. Marcie made everyone comfortable in the classroom, so the interaction with the other students was very, very pleasant.
Marcie inspires me to create art. When you work with Marcie, you are working with someone who clearly loves creating art, is extremely skilled, and wants her students to share the same passion. An accomplished artist that can teach is a gift.

I had a great time at your workshop. I wished it was 2 days too!

mousetrapped. I’ve painted my mouse saga (desperate woman goes to great lengths to rid her house of mice) using recycled kitchen cabinet doors (15 doors) as a base for my mixed media paintings. The series ends with a flashback to 1983, from my journal documenting my first (unintentional) mousetrap. Convinced that i’m not alone with this predicament (war), i have invited the public to contribute their own mouse &/or rat tales.
The Shiny Shell. A children's chapter book about a boy and a dolphin on a mission to save the oceans. An Eco-Adventure for ages 6 - 12 in Ebook & print.
"...it's a book that blends a rip-roaring adventure with important lessons about science and ecology, the emphasis being on the perils facing planet Earth from environmental disregard...and the illustrations, wow! Nothing ordinary about the wonderful art which nicely supports the flow of this story." "...Everyone in my family found the story quite compelling...we were absolutely enchanted by Marcie Wolf-Hubbard's lovely, dreamy illustrations! The Shiny Shell should be a perennial favorite for children -- or anyone who enjoys a tale that entertains as well as informs."
