Art Workshop

We are a group that meets each week in a workshop format to explore and experiment with watercolor, acrylic, sketching and pastels, etc. Students are ages 7 to adult. Art history and techniques are taught as they are encountered for a more lasting retention of those details.

Workshop sessions meet in Bloomington on Fridays during the school year and Tuesdays in June and July. The cost is $10 for 60 min and $14 for 90 min. Family discount is offered for 90 min sessions. There is no commitment to attend and you only pay when you do attend. Visit the Facebook page to see what supplies are needed for each medium. Supplies can be purchased by you, or Betty will purchase them for you.

The group, which meets at Freedom Baptist Church, 2006 Fox Creek Rd, in Bloomington, is led by Betty Broadfield. She has been an art teacher for over 30 years and has her degree from Illinois State University. Betty is a 4H leader and was a home school mom. Our class has an outstanding record of award winning sketches and paintings on the local, state, and nationwide levels.
