Walking Tour: Gossips and Gadflies

Can you keep a secret? This tour explores the Stockade through the writings of Harriet Mumford Paige, Schenectady’s own version of Lady Whistledown. Living in the early 19th century, she was an ordinary woman with an extraordinary penchant for peddling rumors. Together we’ll air out all of her neighbors’ dirty laundry! This program is free for members, but RSVP required. Non-members are $12/person. All ticket sales are final.

Free – $12.00

Watercolor Collage Workshop

This class is for never-ever painters, those with experience looking to try a new style, or anyone in between. We'll learn different watercolor painting techniques and create a free-flowing, abstract 9×12 painting. After tearing your painting into strips/shapes and attaching them to fresh base, you’ll have created a unique art piece ready for framing, or multiple smaller pieces used for greeting cards — your choice! Frames will be available to purchase during class for an additional $6. Our instructor will be Rebecca Cigal of Cigal Studio.   $45 fee includes materials.
