There was a wonderful primitive artist (Minnie Evans) from Wilmington NC and
I have an excellent lesson that I've used with my students based on her
work, plus I have images of her work....she worked from 50's - 80's.
And there's another artist from Wilmington...Claude Howell who is well known
throughout NC...he did hard edge painting...and Bunki Kramer has a lesson
based on his work.
And there are many others...I would love to share my lesson based on Minnie
Evans...it's been used in elementary, middle and high school classes and the
students love it. I think this is an EXCELLENT idea!
