About Our Teachers

Our artists work and live in your community. Many are teachers at
local schools. Some of our artists have been with us since we opened in 1982. Some are nationally recognized, many have won awards at juried shows, some have written and/or illustrated books. All work passionately to express their artistic visions. All feel that it is very important to have an artistic presence in the community and so choose to support this view by showing and working at the Broadway Gallery. We sincerely appreciate the support the community has given the gallery over the years.

10:00 am to 3:30 pm

Fee: $150/person
Class Size: Min 6; Max 10
Watercolor wants to move. That is because
it is…JUICE!
Join Trish Harding in this unique and inspiring watercolor class that will put everything you’ve learned about this transparent medium on its head! We will be working upright on an easel to take advantage of “the bead & quick drying.” Try experimenting with NON-LOCAL COLOR. We will learn the importance of using our palette & building muscle memory, how to apply watercolor to the surface, AND how to keep the surface juicy and moving.
Get excited! Right now! Anticipate what you will be able to do with this information. You will find it liberating to cast off that obnoxious over-control as we engage in exercises to free you up!


Our two-day workshop will be filled with how to push your painting as far as you dare. Watercolor will no longer be intimidating but rather a free spirited full partner in your creations. Some experience is helpful but not necessary. Your own supplies are required.
Bring a lunch! Ask for a supply list when registering.

Payment in Advance Required
