Art Explorium is a community arts center offering art education for children and adults of all skill levels. An artist with a passion for teaching, Amy Gibbs offers instruction in a fun, safe, nurturing environment where process, exploration, curiosity, and imagination are cultivated and encouraged.

In addition to art classes, Art Explorium hosts workshops and events for adults. The eagerly anticipated annual Summer Camp is open to children aged x-xx, and runs from XXX-XXX. Amy frequently teaches art workshops at the University of the Virgin Islands, as well as various locations on St. John and St. Croix.

After School Art Program

Art Explorium offers children ages 6 to 18 the opportunity to explore their creativity and artistic selves in a fun, nurturing environment. Kids are exposed to the fundamentals of fine art and introduced to a wide variety of media and artists. Amy’s core believe is that art is for everyone. Accordingly, she routinely organizes fundraising events for scholarships to her program and offers artistic assistance and guidance to the under-served youth of the Virgin Islands.
