Art classes to begin Monday at Wynne Home

The Wynne Home will hold new art classes beginning Monday.

The Arts Center’s summer schedule offers classes in watercolor, ceramics and dance.

“Students can come and stay from 9 a.m. to noon and get to do three different things,” said Linda Pease, Cultural Services Coordinator for the Wynne Home. “Our intent is to do this every summer. We’re patterned in some ways by the Huntsville Enrichment Activities Program, HEAP.”

Rhonda Cox will be the ceramics instructor and teaches in the public school system as well.

Sheila Spencer is one of two watercolor teachers for the first week of classes.

Spencer will be teaching art at Huntsville High School this fall.

The dance instructors will be Amy Llanes and Jennifer Hart.

“We have very good teachers,” Pease said. “I always love it when the children come here. When a child is in the house, everyone is the happiest.”

The classes are for ages 6 and up and will be rotated by age groups (6-8, 9-10, 11-12).

“They’re going to learn new things and hopefully make things for their parents,” said O’Neisha Plattenburg, Wynne Home Intern. “We just want everyone out here in Huntsville to be involved with arts and crafts.”

For adults, ballroom dance, taught by Ken Hartness; scrapbooking, taught by Kathy Cook; and denim quilting classes are offered, as well as a three-part movie series featuring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.

The series, entitled, “Fred and Ginger: 3 Films”, is free of charge.

Ralph Pease, English professor at Sam Houston State University, will conduct the film series.

One film will be shown each Monday evening for the next three weeks at 7 p.m. in the Gallery.

No child care will be provided, but children who are at least 8 years old are permitted to attend under the supervision of an accompanying adult.
