Gabriola Palette People is an informal art group that was formed many years ago to provide an inclusive and creative art environment where members come together regularly to develop their artistic skills. Members get together once or twice weekly to create art using watercolour, acrylic, oil paints or mixed media. 

Known as 'Palette People', the objectives of this art group are to:

  • Provide an opportunity for members to meet and practice their visual art skills.
  • Ensure that all members enjoy this association in an inclusive, safe and respectful environment.
  • Provide workshops at a reasonable fee to help the members develop new skills.
  • Encourage members at all levels of skill to increase their potential by constructive observations in a congenial atmosphere.
  • Arrange for at least one show a year of members’ art work where the public may purchase pictures.
  • Provide members with an opportunity to buy basic art supplies through group purchase.
