Jo Evarts earned her B.A. in English and Art History from Wellesley College, and her Ed.M. from Harvard. The Cornish Colony is an area of particular interest to Evarts. Evarts is the editor and publisher of The Complete Hoot, the comprehensive online calendar and information on the arts and events in the Upper Valley (www.thecompletehoot.com).
Course Title: Architecture & Landscape Architecture in the Cornish Colony (Fall Term 2021)
Jo Evarts is a great communicator. She also is notably encouraging to all participants.
Jo has an amazing depth of knowledge regarding the Cornish Colony!
Course Title: Maxfield Parrish and the “Lively Days” of the Cornish Colony (Fall Term 2020)
Exceptional knowledge of her topic.
This course was one of the best I have taken through ILIAD/Osher, if not the best.
Course Title: Life, Love, Art and Gardens in the Cornish Art Colony, 1880 -1916 (Fall Term 2019)
I have taken several courses with Jo Evarts and I really enjoy the opportunity (always optional) to pick a subject of interest to do individual research and present it to the class.
course I was surprised that much of what we learned was from Jo’s own knowledge and life experience as part of a family related to the Colony.
