Expression with a brush and an easel
Posted: August 18, 2011
Sylvia Jaffee and Bea Goodfader are regulars at the art class at Coleman House. Sylvia enjoys the opportunity to be creative. She painted before moving to Coleman and is thrilled to be able to return to it. She particularly enjoys working with art instructor Edie Green. "Edie is professional and a prominent artist. Having her as my art teacher makes me feel that the work I do is important."
The last time Bea painted was in high school, so the class is opening up many new opportunities. "I have done nine paintings so far. I wouldn't give them up for anything in the world. I'm so proud of them!" Bea's granddaughter is inspiring her current project -- Bea plans to give it to her when it's completed.
Coleman House holds an annual art show to give all the artists a chance to share their works with their neighbors and family.
