ORGANIZER: Willy Sydnor
WHERE: Community Center, Arts and Ceramics Studio
WHEN: Thursdays, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
DETAILS: Residents of varied interests and skills come to Ceramics to “play in the mud”. From beginners to more experienced potters, everyone has the opportunity to try their hand at something new. In this friendly environment the instructor, currently Yoshi Fujii of Baltimore Clayworks, offers encouragement and new techniques while each resident contributes his or her own imagination and enthusiasm.



ORGANIZER: Jane Elkinton and Jai Dixon
WHERE: Community Center, Arts and Ceramics Studio
WHEN: Fridays, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
DETAILS: A series of workshops in art fundamentals with instruction through on-line video classes and presentations by the two organizers. Relevant art history and art theory are included. Participants all cooperate as presenters, interrogators, learners, critics, and risk-takers through experience in a wide variety of media and techniques.  Signup is required.


WHERE: In the Community Center’s glass Display Case, near the main Reception Desk.
WHEN: Ongoing

DISPLAY CASE DETAILS: The committee displays residents’ private collections of many different themes, including holidays and, a favorite, “Why did I bring this to Broadmead?” Displays are usually mounted for one to two months. The Ceramics Class displays their work in the
summer months.


ORGANIZER: Carolyn Murphy
WHERE: East Hall, on the upper level of the Community Center
WHEN: Approximately 10 shows per year. Most shows are for one month.
DETAILS: The East Hall resident shows can be solo or group shows of anything hangable — artwork, photographs, and quilts (a winter favorite) being the most frequent displays. Efforts are made to invite at least two outside professional artists to display their work, each year.


ORGANIZER: Denise Love
WHERE: Community Center, Arts and Ceramics Studio
WHEN: Tuesdays, 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

DETAILS: This is an informal gathering of knitters and crocheters.  Attendance varies. 


ORGANIZERS: Carel Hedlund and Jeannette Anders
WHERE: Community Center, Arts and Ceramics Studio
WHEN: Wednesdays, 10:00 am –12 noon
DETAILS: Instructor Sally Thomas usually designs a project for the newcomers that she will demonstrate and help students to achieve. For returning students, there is always the option to learn something new or use the time to improve or finish an ongoing project. In either case, Sally is there to answer questions, give advice, and provide encouragement. This group works well in close proximity and can offer each other ways to see with fresh eyes.  Participation is limited to about 10, given the size of the room and the need for working space.
