Instructor Spotlight: Wennie Huang
Wennie Huang has been helping students put brush strokes on canvas for nine years at 92Y School of the Arts. Teaching the art of painting through watercolor, pastel and sketching, Huang says the skill is anything but paint by numbers. “It’s kind of like life—if you’re truly painting, then the sensation is akin to living on the edge, where at any time, you are between total loss and utter bliss.” Her students, however, have not been daunted by the art’s complexity and keep coming back. “I love my students and have learned so much from them over the years.” Huang, whose work has been featured at the Bronx Museum of the Arts and the Chicago Cultural Center, says she identifies with the values at 92Y. “It is a great feeling to be teaching here where my experience and skills are valued and supported within a nurturing community that encourages life-long learning through the arts.”
