American Mah Jongg is an exciting four-player tile game with Chinese origins. Using 152 tiles depicting Chinese characters and symbols, players pick and discard in turn to form combinations found on the National Mah Jongg League’s annual card of hands. Strategy, skill, and luck are needed to be the first player to complete a hand and declare “Mah Jongg!” This 4 session class will be taught by our very popular instructor, Michele Heffner. This class will be taught in person at the Bender JCC. *Space limited to 8 participants.

Have you always wanted to learn how to paint?

Join us for this six-week painting with acrylics series for beginner to intermediate painters. This class will equip you with basic techniques and fundamentals of composition, perspective, and color theory.

Students will be guided to practically learn about each concept and apply it to their painting knowledge. In some classes, the student will be given the option to choose their subject matter or a subject may be provided. Each student will create paintings with the help and guidance of our instructor and trained artist, Paige Friedeman.
