Roth JCC offers watercolor painting for beginners

Among the adult enrichment classes offered at the Roth Jewish Community Center of Greater Orlando is watercolor painting for beginners. For six weeks, adults of all ages have met each Thursday morning for instruction and social time.

This was the second time the course was offered by Marilyn Schwartz of Maitland. Schwartz comes with years of experience as a painter of various mediums. She is a member of the Roth JCC and enjoys sharing her knowledge and love for painting with other members and community members.

This fun and informal class covered basic color techniques, such as flat wash, graded wash, glazed wash, wet-on-wet and dry brush. Each member was responsible for bringing the supplies and the instruction was free for JCC members and $10 for community members.

“The watercolor art class that Marilyn taught was simply fantastic. She is such a talented artist herself—and she is a terrific and encouraging teacher,” said JCC member Barry Render. “Water color painting is totally different, and actually much more fun than other painting techniques I have done in years past. Thank you, JCC, for offering this opportunity.”

The next class offered on Thursday mornings is bagels and beads, with Jan Tunnell of Maitland. Tunnell is a professional artist with beads and silver jewelry, and will lead the class through May 9 at 10:30 a.m. To register, contact the Welcome Center of the Roth Jewish Community Center at 407-645-5933. Watercolor Painting will follow, beginning May 23 at 10:30 a.m.
