Red Barn News:

The Red Barn has been getting a real facelift. 

Community in Blooms with Deb Heap has transformed our parking lot and side yards with new gardens and new fence.  You need to drop by and see how beautiful the plants and paintings on the fence are. 

We have finished the new handicap bathroom with a handicap  ramp to the exit door. Kim Hyde was the driving force for this much needed addition so that all visitors to the Red Barn have easy access. 

And finally we are getting a new Hvac system installed.  Maybe we won't have to wear mittens to paint this winter. 

See you at the Red Barn

      Barn Boards:

The Red Barn is continuing to offer free materials and instruction to anyone that would like to try their hand at painting a barn board. On Monday and Tuesday of every week you are welcome to drop in between 10 and 2 to enjoy this fun group.

“Easier and more fun than I thought it would be. I think I will paint another one” said a participant.


The Brush and Palette Group is meeting on Fridays 10 to 2 and is offering instruction or playtime as Betty calls it every second Friday. You can join the group as a member or we are welcoming drop ins as long as there is room but the Red Barn fills up fast as the tables are placed for social distancing.

On Oct. 2 Bring old paintings that you with to rejuvenate or make some changes to and the medium used to do so (watercolors, acrylics, etc)

On Oct. 9 Chinese Brush Painting - We have paper and brushes to share.  Please bring watercolor paints, a cloth covered cardboard or any board.  There will be extras.  If you wish to paint a flower bring a picture or use one of ours.  ($2 drop in fee)

Dodys Art for Everyone is back on Wednesdays 10 to 2.  Dody would like to let you know that every type of art is welcome to come and share time at the Red Barn.  Materials, music, poetry, painting and whatever is your fancy.  See you there on Wednesday.  ($2 drop in fee)

As some of us are keeping closer to home to protect our families, you may be looking to enjoy some lessons online.

The Red Barns Mrs. T. is recommending some free online art lesson sites that she found helpful while we wait to fully reopen.

Beginners Watercolor: Step by step instructions https://bluebeachhouseart.com/ 

A free 4 part lesson that is easy to follow along.

If you have some favorite online art lessons, please share with us on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/evac2014 Once Covid 19 is out of the way, the Red Barn Art Center will be engaging everyone again with Art Instruction, theatre, photography and music. Please support the arts while we social distance.

Friday with The Brush and Palette Group

Karen Oliver helped us play with Alcohol Inks on tile and Yupo paper.  It was a new experience for me an I was amazed at the vibrancy of the colors. Here is a few pics.
