Santa Rosa Beach artist Kathleen Broaderick has announced her first fall series of intimate art sessions including “sip-and-paint”-style art classes and an intensive two-day oil painting workshop are underway.
All sessions will be held at the newly opened CHROMA Studio & Gallery, 3925 W. Highway 30A in Santa Rosa Beach.
“I am excited to welcome everyone into my beautiful new studio gallery,” said Broaderick. “I dreamed of creating an environment where guests would feel comfortable expressing themselves creatively, and I am thrilled to be able to share my techniques with fellow art lovers who also find joy in art.”
The single session classes are two-and-a-half hours long. All supplies are provided, including gallery-wrapped canvases, high-quality professional acrylic paints, brushes and step-by-step instructions, plus all the encouragement needed to make a masterpiece. Wine and snacks are welcome, but experience is not required. The cost for each single session class is $75 per person.
The next painting class, “Yellowtail,” is scheduled from 6-8:30 p.m. Oct. 12. Enjoy a night of fishy fun and paint a vibrant yellowtail on a 10-by-20 gallery wrapped canvas.
“Rock Rooster” is scheduled from 9:30 a.m. to noon Nov. 4. Broaderick will rile up this class with her rowdy rooster strutting onto a 12-by-16 gallery wrapped canvas.
Her first two-day workshop in her new space is from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 23 and 24. This session includes a one-hour lunch break (bring a bag lunch or enjoy lunch on 30A). Broaderick will paint a demonstration painting each morning that will serve as a creative prompt. As they paint, students will enjoy exclusive one-on-one painting tips, advice and guidance from Broaderick. Classes are limited to 12. A supply list will be provided to each registered student. The fee is $250 per person.
Her love of watercolor is evident in the transparent, luminosity of her energetic, layered oil paintings. Broaderick deftly captures the essence of her subjects with bold use of clean color and light created with loose brushstrokes resulting in fresh, relatable pieces.
As the 2016 Poster Art Contest winner, Broaderick’s artwork prominently represented the Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation’s Festival of the Arts in Destin. The same year, she also won an Award of Merit in the 21st annual juried art competition. In June 2017, she designed and opened CHROMA Studio & Gallery on 30A. In August 2017, she was named an exclusive artist for Ballard Designs, one of the nation’s premier sources for home furnishings.
