Hi! Can't wait to get back into art! I was a teacher for camp there many years ago! I managed many of the paint your own pottery studios that used to be everywhere. Since then I worked in vintage clothing and did design for Pottery barn. Now I am a mom and wife who recently moved to Charlotte! I can't wait to reconnect with the Shelburne Craft School and remember how to throw clay!
I teach chemistry full-time at UVM but art has always been a huge part of my life. Finally, after years of watching my daughter enjoy the classes and camps at the Shelburne Craft School, I decided to take a clay class.
Andrew Everett has lived in Shelburne for seven years and during that time has been very involved in local organizations. In addition to his role as a board member at the Craft School, Andrew is the co-President of Shelburne Youth Lacrosse, he is a Vice President on the board for Northern Vermont Youth Lacrosse League, as well as a board member of the Vermont Chapter of US Lacrosse. He previously served as the President of the Boulder Hill Homeowners Association. He has also spent the last year in the Shelburne Planning Commission, and was recently named the Vice Chair.
Andrew has a varied professional background, having spent time as a teacher, coach, and school administrator at Brunswick School in Greenwich, CT and Seattle Academy in Seattle, WA; an executive at a variety of technology startups in Seattle, including Starwave, Esurg, and Expedia; as well as briefly as a land planner. Most recently Andrew served as Director of Endeavour Middle School in Shelburne.
Andrew is a graduate of Williams College and did Masters work at Wesleyan University.
Andrew and his wife, Elise, who is a gynecologic oncologist at UVM Medical Center, have two children who are avid users of The Shelburne Craft School.

I have a very challenging and technical job that I love, but I have found that an unfortunate byproduct of a highly technical focused life for me has lead to a loss of connection with my creative side.. Which I do not dig, so, I am making a point to refocus time and energy into igniting creativity and finding a better balance!
I’m a beginner(ish) to oil, I have painted watercolors for years, and have dabbled in pastels and drawing. Now I’m looking to expand my skill set and try a new medium. I am very much looking forward to joining the community! :)
I paint the majority of my works in the Vermont Landscape. Painting is all about color, light and shapes. I am constantly working a painting to reflect the color and light of an object or landscape. If an artist can capture color and light then the artist can capture the moment. I like to think of my paintings as capturing a moment in time, including the emotion experienced in that moment. The ultimate goal of a work is to share the beauty of the moment with the viewer.
Playing in clay is a way for me to practice life lessons like being centered, getting messy, and letting go. I love the process of creating and being surprised by the result, and I am eager to learn more about this flexible and multifarious medium.
I'm a Material Science PhD student developing plant-based commercial materials.
When I'm not busy with school, I like to cook, snowboard, travel, backpack, write, and play board games.
I've always dreamed of making my own furniture! Cheers to beginning my journey. :)
