Albert Gans Leads Senior Center Art Classes July 11, 2018

At 89 years of age, Albert Gans is not just a member of the Oxford Area Senior Center (OASC); he is a long-time teacher there, leading art classes every Wednesday from 8 to 11:15 a.m.

"I've been doing this at least 20 years at the Oxford Senior Center, maybe longer," Gans said.

Gans was an electronic engineer until he retired at the age of 65 and had time to turn his attention to fine art. He credits his pursuit of teaching art to the late Amy Beeman, whom he met through the Octorara Art Association, where she was president for several years.

"We got to be really good friends. She was teaching at about six senior centers at the time. She got busy doing a mural and asked if I would help her. She gave me four senior centers to (teach art lessons) at the time - Coatesville, Oxford, Downingtown and Kennett Square," Gans explained. "When she finished the mural, she said, 'Why don't you just stay?' so I kept the job.

"I give her credit," he continued. "Through her friendship and efforts, I became a full-time artist teaching at the senior centers and opening an art studio."

Gans studied at the Philadelphia College of Art and had his own studio in a barn on his property, where he gave lessons. Currently, Gans focuses on teaching at the OASC, but he keeps busy with his own work as well and had a display at the Oxford Arts Alliance Annex earlier this year. His work as an artist covers a full spectrum of subjects and materials.

"I prefer certain mediums for the subject I'm doing. I like oil for portraits, I like watercolor for painting outside landscapes, I like acrylic for abstracts because it dries so fast," he explained, adding that he has also done sculpture, wood carving and mosaics.

Teaching, however, is one of his primary interests. "I love it. We not only have an art class, (but) we have a social club," Gans said. "These people here are such good friends. It's a wonderful thing to have friends."

Gans' students are just as enthusiastic. "I can't say enough good things about him," said Nancy Devine as she worked on a watercolor. "I just always liked art. I was always interested, but I never had anyone teach me like Al has. When you come here, you not only get a teacher; you get a friend."

"We love Al; he helps us all," Evelyn Munson agreed. "He's kind and he's helpful. I never painted a thing until I retired at 65."

Diane Rickards has been taking classes at the OASC for more than seven years. "If it wasn't for Al, I would have come one or two weeks and quit," she said. "He's wonderful. He has patience, and he helps all of us. He's just the best artist. We feel very relaxed; there's no pressure."

Art classes at the OASC cost a nominal fee per session. The class is open to area residents age 60 and over.

Art classes are just one of many offerings at the center, located at 12 E. Locust St., Oxford. Other regular activities include crafts such as making greeting cards, tech classes, stretching, Zumba and more. For more information, readers may contact the center at 610-932-5244 or oxsrctr@zoominternet.net or visit www.oxfordseniors.org.
