Ev has a strong philosophical view that teaching is not so much about showing as it is about instilling in others the desire to learn. If you want to find out something you will actively seek it.
A teacher’s role is to awaken awareness and inspire others to believe they can achieve what they once thought impossible.
Teaching skills and developing the ability to see beyond the ‘known’ are all facets of this process. Ev rarely offers an ABC solution because creativity is all about starting form nothing and building and image – seeing opportunities and knowing how to harness the unexpected.
Much of her advice is based on strong basic design principles that underpin every style of art from the photo realist to the abstract. If it ‘works’ it is ‘right’, if it does not work then look at rules and see if you can find a way to resolve the problem. But never paint to rules.
Face to face teaching happens in a variety of formats
– demonstrating to groups
– teaching classes indoors and outdoors
– conducting painting tours over seas.
Full day workshops or consecutive from 2 – 10 days, provide a concentrated learning process.
I do not teach weekly classes.
