Had it not been for an eight-year-olds birthday party in 2009, the unique vision behind The Gallery Off Broadway may not have been born. "I never thought I would teach art lessons, not did it ever occur to me that I may open my own art gallery," said Kathleen Fenton owner and artist of the The Gallery Off Broadway. In the midst of her daughter's birthday party, Kathleen found herself helping the little girls draw and showing them her pastel works and paintings in her home studio. "It occurred to me after one of these slumber parties that these little girls were excited to learn how to draw and paint," said Kathleen, "and I was just as excited to teach them."
Kathleen, who started her vision with Hearts Full of Hope Art Academy, has taken the whole art experience to a brand new level by opening The Gallery Off Broadway in downtown Excelsior Springs. There are a variety of unique classes held monthly for everyone including, Young Picasso's for the youth, and Corkscrews & Canvas for the adults. The Gallery also hosts a variety of special events, such as kid's camps, birthday parties, corporate events, wedding and baby showers, holiday parties, and international retreats to name a few. In addition to the fun classes and events, there is artwork from artist from around the world showcased in the gallery.
The Studio is available any day or evening for Private Parties! You must have 10 people to book a Corkscrews & Canvas class. To inquire about our private parties email Kathleen Fenton firstname.lastname@example.org .
At the Gallery Off Broadway, we have workshops and retreats, art shows and parties on a monthly basis and I have finally decided to join my fellow artists on Etsy.
