An adjunct professor at Empire State College (part of the State University of New York) where she's been teaching for the last 15 years, she has also taught in local collages, such as University at Albany, Sage College, Junior College of Albany, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Columbia-Greene College and Skidmore College

For the past 12 years, Marta has also been teaching classes in her Delmar studio. As a successful teacher, she has been motivating and exciting students about making art. For painters, the rich rewards of "making something out of nothing" can be achieved by those willing to learn the craft of drawing and painting from the foundations up.

Students at The Artist Studio have become enriched by making art a part of their lives, and some have gone on to win local and national awards.
