I am so pleased to tell you that this fall, my weekly classes will be held at the West Bath Seaside Grange Hall that is just three miles from my house at 75 New Meadows Road, West Bath. Those of you who attended the Stan Miller workshop already know that the Grange is a sweet space; lots of space, lighting, and everyone has their own table. AND - it has bathrooms! I think it will be perfect. In the winter you will not need to come down Fosters Point Road, and I know that will be a relief.
One thing that has been an "absolute" in my mind was that I could not have my classes anywhere except my studio. I just thought that if I made a change, you would all just go away! But I saw that you all loved the Grange - it is such a charming old building with so muchhistory, and I suddenly just had one of those "eureka" moments. I could see us all there, and it just felt perfect. I surely do hope I am right, as I want you all back in class this fall. And of course, we will have "studio visits"!
Please call me at 207 443-5045 or my cell phone 207-449-7057 or send me an email at
to sign up for this series of lessons.
Love to you all,Evelyn
SEE THOSE WHO FAN YOUR FLAME.....Rumi
Ichosethis quote as it so clearly says what I want to be as a teacher.
We are tender plants. We need to be tended, our skills encouraged and challenged, with lots of guidance, explanations, demonstrations as well as historical references that inspire and instruct.
I see this as my goal for my classes and workshops. To "fan your flame" so that you will burn brightly in your own unique way.
The additional space at the Grange means that you can paint in a larger format if you chose. I will be looking for carefully composed designs. Preparatory work with photos at home could include studies to crop, eliminate, or simplify the content of the photo in order to make a strong painting. Value is paramount. And as always, edges are one of our best tools for creating the painting that we want.
TELL ME WHAT YOU NEED
I am also eager to hear from you with your specific needs, and what you would like to haveaddressedin class. As I hear from you, I can be better prepared to help you.
I will soon be off to Rhodora, Frederic Church's camp on Millinocket Lake for a workshop, and then to France for two weeks. I'll be teaching a workshop in Venasque, and then to the Netherlands to my granddaughter, Molly, who is atMaastricht University studying politics. I am pinching myself, believe me!
I'll be very happy to see you in October. Please do let me know if you will be coming to class; send me an email at
