I am very excited to report that I will be teaching a class this fall at Concord Art Association.    This class will be on painting in series - my favorite way to work now.  I have done a series of paintings on houses, scissors and slips and am starting a new series inspired by painting in Maine this summer. 

My Concord Art Association class will be for 6 weeks starting Wednesday, September 19th until October 24th.  It will run from 10 AM - 2 PM with time for lunch of course!  Here is the class description from Concord Art Association's website:

Working It Out . . . Painting a Meaningful Series
Martha Wakefield
All Levels

Develop your graphic language by creating a series. In this class you will learn how to create a comprehensive body of work that explores an idea, form, visual sensation or feeling. The goal is to explore and expand on a concept through variation on a theme allowing you to develop a more personal expression and signature style. Students will do painting exercises to support the process of creating a series. The class will also study examples of series painted by the great artists. Each session will end with a critique and class discussion. To see Martha’s work go to
