Testimonials

Morgan,
Just a note to thank you for a great workshop experience in Tequesta, Florida recently. It was a wonderful weekend of observing and learning first hand from a very gifted artist. Your ability to look at what most of us would consider to be a mundane view and transform it into a beautiful painting is amazing – your comments about “it’s all about how you view it” made total sense when we were all able to watch your step by step demos! Your knowledge in all areas of landscape were so well translated verbally, and you were able to meet all of your students at their own particular level of experience. A totally worthwhile and very enjoyable experience that I would highly recommend for anyone interested in advancing to the “next” level of landscape!

One of the things I learned from watching Morgan’s demos was her attention to brushwork. Every single stroke was different and deliberate. When I asked Morgan about her brushwork she said that there were 22 decisions made with each brushstroke. That was amazing itself, but even more so when she could actually NAME them. I went home and practiced my brush strokes. I used her DVD’s to learn more. I read her book more than once. And my painting has changed more in one year than it had in the previous several years. I found Morgan to be an incredibly generous teacher. She tells you exactly what you need to know for you, and what you want to know to improve your painting skills. Each time I study with Morgan I build on what I know. Every time is different and that is why she has so many repeat students year after year after year.

To describe those two days at Mt. Dora as “intense” is an understatement. I’m still not an oil painter but I know I can be, because of you. I arrived with a major goal: To paint a selection of greens without a pure green paint on my palette. You helped me accomplish that from the first hours. Every bit of advice you gave seemed to be directed straight at me. I’ve never had an instructor talk right to me, as you did. Where have you been? More succinctly: Why did I wait 15 years to seek you out? Morgan, you’re one of a kind. I love you. I need your continued oil advice, but I truly wonder what changes I would see if I brought my watercolor technique to you for a dusting from your magic brush. Is there a workshop dedicated to watercolor in the foreseeable future? One that starts closer to 9 am? I never knew there was a six in the morning.

Thank you my special person,
Bob Woodring

PS: I apologize for not sticking around to hear student critiques on Saturday. I was worn out.




To Whom It May Concern:
In 2001, an internet search for art instruction led to my purchasing VHS tapes of Morgan Samuel Price. Upon viewing, I was impressed with Morgan’s artistic talent and her teaching ability.

I have attended many art workshops and viewed numerous art instruction tapes/DVDs in the past. Although the artists possess technical talent, they rarely can translate this into true instruction.

In addition to purchasing every one of Morgan’s DVDs and books, I’ve attended two plein air workshops. It was no surprise to me that Morgan is highly effective as a “classroom” instructor. I’m in a unique position to evaluate Morgan’s teaching ability. For the past 27 years, I’ve led corporate training departments for major corporations. In addition, I possess a doctorate in adult learning.

Morgan is a rarity, possessing incredible artistic talent and the ability to effectively transfer her knowledge and skills to others.

Sincerely,
Rita Smith
Vice President, Enterprise Learning




Hello Morgan,
I want you to know how much I enjoyed meeting you and experiencing your workshop this week. You are a wonderful teacher, amazing artist and a fun person to be around! I listened hard and learned a lot of great information that I will continue to practice on my weekend painting trips. I also appreciated the abundant energy you brought to your demos each morning, even when you had very little sleep!

Thank you so much for your patience and sharing so much of you with us!

I remain a devoted fan of your beautiful work and look forward with anticipation to see what you will create next.

Sincerely,
Bob Holden
