Evening Art Classes at the J
 
Friday, September 28, 2018

Do you have an interest in learning how to paint with watercolor or watercolor pencils or create ceramic pieces? The perfect opportunity to learn these skills is now! Do you work and cannot make it to a daytime class? The Evelyn Rubenstein JCC (the J) has several night time offerings in water color or water color pencils with Susan Wingfield and wheel throwing with Caitlin Scott. 

Susan Wingfield will guide you through the process starting Tuesday, November 13-December 18 at 7:00 PM. When asked who should take these classes, Wingfield replied, “Classes are for students who know little or nothing about watercolor or watercolor pencils or those who want a refresher class.”

Wingfield primarily paints in water soluble oils. She paints subjects that are close to home: people, pets, still lifes, landscapes, and anything with color. Her focus is realism with an emphasis in complementary highlights and shadows, obtaining a richness of depth through color. She also paints in acrylic, watercolor and gouache (opaque watercolor).

She is a native Houstonian who graduated from the University of Houston in 1982 with a B.F.A. and worked in advertising and graphic design. She taught art in the public schools in Houston for 16 years and is now painting and/or teaching adults full time. She believes that anyone can learn to draw and paint as long as you commit to work hard and persevere through the frustrating times. If you don’t try, you’ll never know.

Caitlin Scott’s wheel throwing class begins Monday, November 12–December 17 at 7:00 PM. 

Scott is a multi-disciplinary, contemporary artist and architect in Houston. Her artistic endeavors include contemporary performance art, painting and ceramics.

She began her education in ceramics in 2011 at the Clay School in Lynn, MA under Alice Drew, studio potter and graduation of The R.I.T. School of American Crafts. Since then, she has studied and practiced ceramics, building a style that combines intensive sgraffito decorating techniques with sculptural elements and simple, wheel thrown & hand-built forms.  The aesthetics of her work are inspired by indigenous symbology and a broad range of artists including Georgia O'Keeffe and Houston's own Jaz Henry.    

Check out our daytime classes as well. We still have a few spaces left in painting and drawing and ceramics hand building and wheel throwing.
