You Can Be that Artist- Adult Art Classes at the J
Tuesday, September 11, 2018

How often when a person says they are an artist the response is “How wonderful! I wish I could draw…” followed by a statement such as how one would love to be able to draw but can’t even draw a stick figure or that someone else in the family is the artist.

Compare learning art to learning a sport. Some people are more gifted initially and may learn faster than others, but eventually they learn the sport. This is also true of art.

“The tools of art are learned, as well as the skills to handle them. With time and good support, every person can find their own voice,” said Maxine Silberstein program coordinator for adult visual arts at the Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center of Houston (the J).

Join the J’s wonderful staff of instructors which include Stacy Kuropata (hand building, wheel-throwing and art history class), Susan Wingfield (studio painting, drawing and watercolor), Ruthi Drori-Mitelman (drawing, hand building, and beading and wiring) and Caitlin Scott (wheel-throwing), and find your voice doing something new, whether it be watercolor, pottery or drawing and painting.

Move past, “I can’t” and give yourself the experience of creating something with your own hands, eyes and heart. Your artwork will always be special because you created it yourself.
