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.

Scholarships for Youth

Scholarships are available for students 7 – 18 years of age who are interested in art classes and otherwise unable to afford the classes. Forms are available at the Gallery, or by email to Susan at

One key to creating artwork that draws your eye into a picture is to become familiar with opposites. For example, comparing colors opposite on the color wheel adds interest and zing to the paintings. When using pencil or paint, you will learn in this class to use darks and lights. Colors that are next to each other on the color wheel create calmness in what you paint. There is big, little, heavy and light and all kinds of ways you can show depth in your painting. With the instructor’s help, the student will explore which opposite works best for them.
Supplies provided by instructor. Materials we may explore are: acrylic paints, charcoal drawing, watercolor, oil pastel, chalk pastel or any other medium you would like to try.
Once the student finds a medium they like, they are encourage to buy that medium and what goes with it.
