Before there was a Scottsdale Art School, the Hindes Art School was opened in Hindes, Texas by owner and instructor, Janice Yow Hindes. Shortly after opening she won the Coppini Adult Scholarship. Later came the Purchase Prize from the Scottsdale Art School. Hindes then exhibited at the Cowboy Artist of America Museum, sold out at the Gilcrease Museum Miniature Show, won Best of Show Regional OPA and became an OPA Signature Member. A&M University incorporated one of her portraits of benefactor Clifford Wendler at the dedication of the Wendler Wing of the Library. This past member of the Western Academy of Women Artists won the Little Jewel Plein Aire Award in Tuscon. As Coppini Artist of the Year, she also served as their president. Hindes was accepted into the National Association of Professional Plein Aire Painters and exhibited at the NYC National Arts Club. She was also a winner in the first Annual Ray Mar Contest.

She took workshops with Howard Terpning, Richard Schmid, Clyde Aspiveg, Dan Gerhartz, and Scott Burdick as well as the outstanding faculty at the Lyme Academy of Fine Arts and received her Masters of Science in Art from Texas A&M University at Kingsville. In order to have only the finest instruction at her school, she brought such notables into the area as Laura Robb, Kevin MacPherson, Rose Frantzen, Gregg Kreutz, and Scott Burdick. After twenty-five years of fun and success, she closed the school to pursue her own art.

Hindes is respected as a colorist with keen insight into the effects of varying types of light. She makes every attempt to capture fleeting moments, honestly. She is a firm believer that life is beautiful; therefore, the artist’s greatest need is to see more clearly rather than excessive embellishment.

At present, she spends most of her painting time in plein air. She has and continues to instructed workshops in Europe, Mexico, and Canada. As the United States becomes more and more populated, capturing the land void of human impressions becomes more challenging and rewarding.
