On Site Workshops and Classes

An avid believer that art making can be for everyone, I present art workshops (Inkblots, Invisible Ink, Stencils, other) with cancer survivors, elders, children, parent and teen groups, writers, nurses and caregivers, at The Creative Center at University Settlement’s Creative Aging conferences, and their Artist-in-Residence Training program, with EngAGE Utah, at Gilda’s Club, The Huntsman Cancer Institute, Operation Exodus in NYC, at Westbeth, and at Miami University’s Scripps center with Dr. Like Lokon, and Opening Minds Through Art.

The Inkblot workshops I teach are great community builders, break-the-ice activities for groups of adults or children, or creativity enhancing workshops for visual artists and writers. If you are interested in my coming to your venue to do a workshop, please contact me at

I also do readings and art-making workshops with kids in schools with LiteracyINC, at PS 187 and other public schools in Inwood and Washington Heights, at Operation Exodus, with WordUp bookstore, and at other public and private events:

Tuesday, March 27, 2018 INKBLOT: Drip, Splat and Squish Your Way to Creativity Margaret will be making inkblots with Robin Glazer and the participants of the 2018 Creative Aging Training conference at the Creative Center at University Settlement. Must be a Creative Training conference participant to participate in this workshop.

The insects are inkblots, colored into and mounted in a case. You can consider making a Cabinet of Curiosities like this using inkblots contributed from more than one person–a floor of denizens of an assisted care facility, for example.
