Instructor Bio:

Joann Neufeld received her BFA from Tyler School of Art and used her Masters in Art Ed to teach in both the Philadelphia and New Hope- Solebury School districts. The environment of our classes is supportive and friendly as we learn from each other while developing new artistic skills. Each student determines which materials they want to use and which techniques they wish to try. We share our work regularly on the OLLI website as we practice reviewing, discussing, and critiquing artwork. OLLI showcases our student art in exhibitions or in the course guide.


Why when I’m registering do I join the Wait List?
Several of our courses are in high demand. In order to accommodate our members who are not tech-savvy and have trouble registering online, we created a registration system in which there is no advantage to registering early, no disadvantage to registering later.

When registering, you join the Wait List for each course. Don’t be alarmed. This does not mean the course is full. After the registration period is over, we run a lottery on the courses, and it randomly determines who is admitted to each course and who is not. You typically will receive notification regarding which courses you are admitted to, about two weeks before the start of the semester. If a course accepts 150 or more students, you are very likely to get into it.
Thank you for your interest in this course. Unfortunately, the course you have selected is currently not open for enrollment. Please complete a Course Inquiry so that we may promptly notify you when enrollment opens.
