“I truly enjoyed the week-long course I took this past summer with Gibsons School of the Arts. It was informative, supportive, and did much to move us forward in our artistic visions and endeavours. I would highly recommend the courses at the school for their calibre, organization, and educational value.”

“This was the third time I have taken a week long workshop at the Gibson’s School of the Arts. Each time, the classes were well organized and inspiring. I’ve felt welcomed, learned something new and most of all had fun. The town of Gibsons is fun to explore after a long hot day of painting.”
