She has taught at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts as well as Tufts University for seven years where she also received her Masters of Fine Arts. Prior to her Masters, she has worked professionally as a paintings conservator in New York and Boston. Evelina Brozgul has exhibited and sold her paintings in numerous galleries in Massachusetts, Maine, Connecticut, New York, Florida and in Europe. Her work hangs in private collections throughout US. She has a Baccalaureate in painting from The Cooper Union for The Advancement of Art and Sciences in New York, a Conservation of Paintings degree from Florence, Italy and a Masters degree from The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, MA. In the year 2000, she has won the prestigious Joan Mitchell Grant given to only 10 art graduate students in the country.
Evelina Brozgul has also been teaching painting privately for 20 years. She teaches all age groups from 4 years and up. As part of art college preparation for teenagers, some of Evelina’s private students have entered Cooper Union, Parsons, Pratt, Rhode Island School of Design, School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and The Chicago Art Institute. Other students have exhibited and sold their work in galleries. Even though some students have been studying with Evelina Brozgul for more than a few years the starting level is a beginner to advanced. The classes are designed to teach and to improve the technique of anyone willing to learn how to draw or paint.
PRIVATE AND SEMI-PRIVATE ART LESSONS
Students learn to paint from a still life set-up, portraiture, landscape and from copying the old masters for the purpose of learning the technique. Classical instruction with an emphasis on beautiful non-muddy color and accurate and truthful depiction of observed images. Classes are often held in a group, from two, three or with a maximum of five students per class. There is a possibility of a private lesson, but usually, students prefer a small group where they share knowledge and experience. Each student works at their own pace and level. Individual attention is always given to any level student. Neither an absolute beginner nor an experienced painter who would like a fresh new start or a new perspective should not be discouraged to join a group class.
SCHEDULE AND PRICES
The hourly rate is $25. Children’s lessons are usually one hour long. Teenagers and adults length of class varies according to medium. Drawing and watercolor lessons are two hours an oil/acrylic painting are 2-3 hours long. Easels are provided if painting inside the studio, but for plein air classes students are encouraged to bring in a French easel. Supplies will be explained on the first days of your lesson or sent out to you before your first class. We will try to schedule the lessons at your convenience but at least one lesson payment per week is a requirement. Students pay for four lessons going forward and payment is due again on the third lesson BEFORE the credit runs out.
HOLIDAYS: Please note that if your regular lesson falls on the following holidays, it is just like any other absence and you will receive a make-up : Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, Thanksgiving Day (Thursday only) and the Fourth of July. These are the days that I am not teaching but if your class falls on those days, you will reschedule to another day/time. For any other holidays, please let me know if you will not be in class. You will have a make up for those days as well.
The policy of one paid lesson a week stands. During a snow day either your lesson will be rescheduled to a later time that day or week and/or you will receive a make up at a later time. You have one school year to complete your make ups. So if you need to stay home and enjoy the snow day please notify me that you will not be coming and we’ll reschedule you.
Summer schedule is different from the school year. Most lessons are held during the week so that your weekends are free! Your learning is continued into the summer and we often go to paint/draw outdoors. If you plan to take any part of the summer off, please let me know by middle of May. There will be notices going out. Also, in order to secure your spot for September when regular schedule resumes, students will be asked to pay a deposit of 4 lessons for September in mid May. This assures the current students that their spot will be available for them and not taken by new incoming students at the beginning of September.
Corona Virus Situation
During the 2020 Pandemic I am offering classes on Zoom or Skype. Please consult with me about time scheduling and when the appropriate class is for you. In the Summer of 2020 on non- rainy days classes are held at a safe distance outside in my back yard. If the weather does not permit us to be outdoors, we are back on Zoom or Skype. Note that during the online lessons you are learning very precise and useful techniques and these lessons are just as informative and beneficial for your development as an artist.
Also if you are out of town, then I urge you to try Zoom or Skype as this year’s pandemic has opened up many possibilities of long distance learning. I have adapted many wonderful drawing and even painting lessons to teach you invaluable skills.
For a studio visit, an introductory class and all other schedule and payment information please call/text @ 781-223-6704 or just email: firstname.lastname@example.org If you want quick placement, it is recommended you text and then call to speak over the phone rather than emailing.
