The WAS-H classroom is now open for select classes and workshops. The class schedule will indicate whether the courses are on-line or in-person. While the WAS-H office is open during regular WAS-H hours (Tuesday - Saturday 10 am - 3 pm), the on-site Gallery is not open.

The WAS-H Community Outreach Programs include an art gathering for Seniors only. It is a friendly and supportive group, all levels and no fee. Registration is required.

Previously, WAS-H enrolled the Art for Seniors by semester. Going forward, each Thursday will be a separate event to register for, opened 2 weeks at a time. The format will be a 2-1/2 hour session, led by an artist facilitator who will provide an image to paint from. You can choose to paint along or bring a different project to work on. Instruction is not provided. Only watermedia is allowed in our classroom. 

Art for Seniors

    • September 09, 2021
    • 10:00 AM - 12:30 PM (CDT)
    • WAS-H, 1601 Alabama at Mandell, Houston, TX 77006
    • 50


    Thursday mornings, 9:30-12:30

    Level: All (no formal instructor)

    Come paint with senior friends in a welcoming setting at WAS-H. Our large space allows us to fill the room, with painters sharing 25 tables. Each session will be lead by a different facilitator - accomplished artists, regular WAS-H teachers, and Signature members - all with great ideas and insight to share. 

    While the group size is too large for focused instruction, the week's facilitator will have some suggestions for approaching how to paint that week's provided image. With the amount of experience in the room, there is always someone nearby to answer your question or offer an opinion. 

    Check the Outreach for Seniors web page to see the list of upcoming facilitators. There will always be a new image shared to paint,  and a wonderful social time.  

    This weekly event is a community education outreach to seniors only.  All levels. No fee.

No Art for Seniors scheduled in the summer. Schedule runs September - May.
