Anderson Township Senior Center Becoming Center for Art

The Anderson Township Senior Center is becoming a center for art—with new displays and multiple opportunities to learn the skills to make art in a variety of media.  Three walls are dedicated to the fine art on a rotating basis. One wall showcases a “Featured Artist” and the other displays are examples of work created by the participants in art and craft groups. 

The watercolor group meets every Thursday at 9 a.m. and works on a monthly assignment which is later critiqued by members. Instruction is offered by the more advanced artists and is supplemented with Instructional DVDs. Members of this group periodically travel to fine art exhibits in the Cincinnati area so that their understanding of art continually grows as their skills improve. 

The oil painting group paints on Monday at 9:30 a.m. with instruction shared by the participants. 

People who love to quilt gather on Tuesdays at 12:30 p.m. They share both traditional and innovative techniques for creating useable items and art quilts designed to focus on a variety of textures and threads. 

The woodcarvers bring their tools to make hand carved items such as birds, statues and decorative items. This dedicated group meets on Wednesday at 9 a.m. 

Making art extends to other forms also like the card making class which is offered monthly and taught by professional Beth Klaine. Crafts such as coloring and a variety of projects attract those venturing into art.
