About Art With Evan:

Imagine painting and drawing in an atmosphere that is creative, positive, and nurturing. At Art with Evan, colorful impressionist artwork surrounds students in a calm, sunlit studio. Mozart, Bach, or Vivaldi plays as young artists become inspired to paint and draw from still-life, animals, the figure, landscape, or their imaginations.

Art with Evan is an art studio where painting and drawing helps students become more sensitive to the world around them and develop fine motor skills. Children of all ages and with special needs are welcome to explore painting and drawing media, including oils, acrylic, watercolor, pencil, charcoal, and pastel.

Classes are ongoing. Students of all ages may drop in any time. In addition, art-themed birthday parties are offered on weekends.


Evan Hirasawa has been teaching art lessons for more than twenty years in New England and in Chapel Hill. She is a certified art teacher and has a background in art therapy and working with children with special needs.
